    ACPaaS UI JS Date Utils

    js-date-utils-status

    The @acpaas-ui/js-date-utils package provides some basic support for handling JS Date objects. Besides the DateHelper class, a DateGenerator class is included to generate weeks, months and date ranges from a Date Object.

    Installation


    NPM

    npm install @acpaas-ui/js-date-utils --save
    

    Yarn

    yarn add @acpaas-ui/js-date-utils
    

    Import


    // CommonJS
    const DateHelper = require('@acpaas-ui/js-date-utils').DateHelper;
    const DateGenerator = require('@acpaas-ui/js-date-utils').DateGenerator;
    
    // ES2015
    import { DateHelper, DateGenerator } from '@acpaas-ui/js-date-utils';
    

    All methods included in both the Datehelper and DateGenerator can also be imported individually:

    import { parseDate } from '@acpaas-ui/js-date-utils';
    

    A note about JS and dates

    The JavaScript Date object can get quite clunky and confusing to work with, especially across timezones. To keep this package lean and fast, there are no dependencies on helper libraries like moment.js and the included functionality is limited to what is necessary to support the generator.

    To ensure date formates are respected, it is advised to create and use dates in the YYYY-MM-DD format:

    const today = new Date('2017-10-03'); // this will always be the 3th October, 2017
    

    DateHelper

    Available methods and properties

    • parseDate(...args, format?): parse the input to a date object, returns null for an invalid date. Format is an optional strict formatting parameter, using momentjs formats.
    • getWeekday(date, startOfWeek): return the weekday for the provided date, offset by the (optionally) provided startOfWeek param, returns -1 for an invalid date
    • getMonthLength(date): return the length of the month for the provided date, returns -1 for an invalid date
    • getFirstWeekdayOfMonth(date, startOfWeek): return the weekday for the first day of the month for the provided date, offset by the (optionally) provided startOfWeek param, returns -1 for invalid dates
    • getLastWeekdayOfMonth(date, startOfWeek): return the weekday for the last day of the month for the provided date, offset by the (optionally) provided startOfWeek param, returns -1 for invalid dates
    • datesAreEqual(dates, specifier): compare the provided dates array with an optional specifier

      • comparator (string): a date getter method to determine the value to compare (e.g.: getMonths)
    • updateDate(date, day): update the date value of a date, within the limits of the month (negative values will result in 1, values exceeding the month length will result in the month length), returns the provided value for an invalid date
    • updateMonth(date, month): update the month value of a date, adjusting the year value if necessary, returns the provided value for an invalid date
    • formatDate(date, format, options): format a date to a (limited set of) date format(s), returns null for an invalid date

    Usage

    Formatting examples

    const date = new Date('2017-05-01 03:39:44.393');
    
    DateHelper.format(date, 'hh:mm:ss (ms), DDDD DD MMMM YYYY', {
        addLeadingZero: true,
        startOfWeek: 1,
        weekdayLabels: [
            'Maandag',
            'Dinsdag',
            'Woensdag',
            'Donderdag',
            'Vrijdag',
            'Zaterdag',
            'Zondag'
        ],
        monthLabels: [
            'Januari',
            'Februari',
            'Maart',
            'April',
            'Mei',
            'Juni',
            'Juli',

            'Oktober',
            'November',
            'December'
        ]
    });
    

    will result in

    03:39:44 (393), Maandag 01 Mei 2017
    

    Ranges

    A date range consist of an array of dates or weekdays:

    const dateRange = [
        new Date('2017-05-03'),
        new Date('2017-05-20'),
        5, 6
    ];
    

    which translates to all 5th and 6th weekdays (friday and saturday by default) and the 3rd and 20th of may. The dateOutOfRange and closestDateForRange methods expect a parsed date range, an array of integer values representing the days in the month that make up the range. For the above range in the month may, this would be:

    [ 3, 5, 6, 12, 13, 19, 20, 26, 27 ]
    

    The dateOutOfRange method will return true for the following dates:

    [
        new Date('2017-05-02'), // a tuesday
        new Date('2017-18-03'), // a thursday
        new Date('2017-31-03'), // a wednesday
    ]
    

    and false for these dates:

    [
        new Date('2017-05-03'), // specific date in the range
        new Date('2017-05-05'), // a friday
        new Date('2017-05-27') // a saturday
    ]
    

    The closestDateForRange method will return the closest date outside of the provided range, wether it is before or after the provided date:

    const range = [ 3, 5, 6, 12, 13, 19, 20, 26, 27 ];
    
    closestDateForRange(new Date('2017-05-13'), range);
    => 2017-05-14
    
    closestDateForRange(new Date('2017-05-12'), range);
    => 2017-05-11
