No. SharePoint Online's 'Sandbox' and 'Add In' models don't allow for web part connections so its impossible to get any 3rd party 'filter provider' web parts to work on it.
What are Filter Providers and Filter Consumers?
When setting up web part connections in SharePoint you have two sides to the connection:-
FilterPoint will work with any web parts that support standard SharePoint connections. Exactly what the Filter Consumers do with the passed filters is up to them so you sometimes get strange results, for example the built in List View Web Parts (LVWP) don't let you send multiple filters.
You can filter on a date field to show items for any ONE date (not a date range or specific time as yet, this will come in v2).
You can also set a default date using [Today]. So, for example if looking at tasks due, you could set the filter to default to [Today] or maybe "[Today] + 1" for items due tomorrow.
By default FilterPoint will show values that are "equal to" the date selected. This is the only kind of filtering you can apply to dates in Lists and in most 3rd Party webparts.
However, using the "Filters" section in our Planner or PivotPoint you can also set up "Less than" or "greater than" or "not equal to" filters. So, for example, if you wanted to see all tasks due before a certain date, you could set up the Filters section of Planner to show "less than" values on a due date filter.
