Steps to get the Solr date range widget working.



Enable the Facets Range Widget sub-module.

Install the jQuery-ui-Slider-Pips library, as described in the README.txt file in that sub-module's folder.  After playing with this for sometime to get it working, I found the best way to install is via composer.

composer require "bower-asset/jquery-ui-slider-pips:^1.11"

However, calling this command could produce the following error

  Could not find a matching version of package bower-asset/jquery-ui-slider-pips. Check the package spelling, your version constraint and that the package is available in a stability which   
  matches your minimum-stability (dev).

To resolve this issue, in your composer.json file add the following lines to the repositories area:

            "type": "composer",
            "url": ""

So it will now appear as

    "repositories": [
            "type": "composer",
            "url": ""
            "type": "composer",
            "url": ""

This action will install the latest version of range slider and required components.  The response to this request will be
