TimeZoneExt Build Status

ActiveSupport::TimeZone class defines almost every method you need to handle time. Thus providing you with convenient means (Time.zone.now, Time.zone.parse(str), etc.) to get time in current time zone.

When you get time string from an external service and parse can't handle it you need to use strptime method. But ActiveSupport doesn't define strptime method. Let's add this method that will do timezone magic for you.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'time_zone_ext'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install time_zone_ext

Usage

If you parse time string that already includes timezone information Time.zone.strptime will return this time in current timezone.

Time.zone = 'EST'
Time.zone.strptime("2012-06-02 00:00 UTC", "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M %Z")
# => Fri, 01 Jun 2012 19:00:00 EST -05:00

If you parse string without explicitly specified timezone, it will be treated as defined in current timezone.

Time.zone = 'EST'
Time.zone.strptime("2012-06-02 00:00", "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M")
# => Sat, 02 Jun 2012 00:00:00 EST -05:00
