Dates

Dates may represent any date in the proleptic Gregorian calendar.

import Time.Date as Date exposing (Date, date)

Constructing Dates

Use date to construct Date values. If given invalid values for the month and day, they are both clamped and the nearest valid date is returned.

> date 1992 2 28
Date { year = 1992, month = 2, day = 28 } : Date

> date 1992 2 31
Date { year = 1992, month = 2, day = 29 } : Date

> date 1992 2 128
Date { year = 1992, month = 2, day = 29 } : Date

Use year, month, and day to inspect Dates.

> birthday = date 1992 5 29
Date { year = 1992, month = 5, day = 29 } : Date

> Date.year birthday
1992 : Int

> Date.month birthday
5 : Int

> Date.day birthday
29 : Int

Manipulating Dates

setYear, setMonth and setDay can be used to create new Dates containing updated values for each respective field. Like date, these functions clamp their parameters and return the nearest valid date.

addDays can be used to add an exact number of days to a Date.

addYears and addMonths add a relative number of years and months to a date. If the target date is invalid, these functions continually subtract one day until a valid date is found.

> date 1992 1 31
|   |> Date.addYears 1
|   |> Date.toISO8601
"1993-01-31" : String

> date 1992 2 29
|   |> Date.addYears 1
|   |> Date.toISO8601
"1993-02-28" : String

> date 1992 1 31
|   |> Date.addMonths 1
|   |> Date.toISO8601
"1992-02-28" : String

DateTimes

DateTimes represent a Date together with a time offset from midnight.

import Time.DateTime as DateTime exposing (DateTime, dateTime)

Constructing DateTimes

DateTimes can be constructed from a record using the dateTime function or from a UTC timestamp in milliseconds using fromTimestamp. To construct a DateTime using dateTime, pass it a record containing fields for year, month, day, hour, minute, second and millisecond:

> dateTime { year = 1992, month = 5, day = 29, hour = 0, minute = 0, second = 0, millisecond = 0 }
DateTime { date = Date { year = 1992, month = 5, day = 29 }, offset = 0 } : Date

> dateTime { year = 1992, month = 2, day = 31, hour = 0, minute = 0, second = 0, millisecond = 0 }
DateTime { date = Date { year = 1992, month = 2, day = 29 }, offset = 0 } : Date

To make constructing DateTimes less tedious, the library provides Time.DateTime.zero:

> import Time.DateTime as DateTime exposing (DateTime, dateTime, zero)

> dateTime { zero | year = 1992 }
|   |> DateTime.toISO8601
"1992-01-01T00:00:00Z" : String

> dateTime { zero | year = 1992, month = 2, day = 28, hour = 5 }
|   |> DateTime.toISO8601
"1992-02-28T05:00:00Z" : String

Use fromTimestamp to construct a DateTime from a UTC timestamp in milliseconds:

> fromTimestamp 0
|   |> DateTime.toISO8601
"1970-01-01T00:00:00Z" : String

See examples/without-timezone for an example of how to construct DateTimes from local time.

Manipulating DateTimes

Like Time.Date, the DateTime module exposes functions for adding to and updating a DateTime's fields. The functions addYears and addMonths have the same behaviour as their Time.Date counterparts.

ZonedDateTimes

ZonedDateTimes represent a DateTime in a specific TimeZone. See examples/with-timezone for an example of how to use ZonedDateTimes.

import Time.TimeZones as TimeZones
import Time.ZonedDateTime as ZonedDateTime exposing (ZonedDateTime)
