datetime-formatter

This package is intended to simplify the process of converting datetime to the required format as desired by users and businesses. We've developed this package as a result of facing the same obstable that faces many developers in which JS does not provide desirable formats for datetime strings. Which is so bizzare, I still don't get it. But, anyway!

Usage

Parameters:

formatDateTime(date, format); -date: This is the datetime you want to get formatted. (note: if you don't pass this, the function takes current datetime as default);

-format: This is the format that you need to convert your datetime to. Acceptable formats are : 'MM/DD/YYYY' 'MM/DD/YYYY HH:mm:ss' 'MM/DD/YYYY HH:mm' 'MM/DD/YYYY HH:mm:ss.sss' 'MM-DD-YYYY' 'MM-DD-YYYY HH:mm:ss' 'MM-DD-YYYY HH:mm' 'MM-DD-YYYY HH:mm:ss.sss'

Note: if you pass the letter 'a' to any of the above formats that have time in it, it will return the time in AM/PM format. Otherwise, it'd default to 24 hour format. 

Simple usage of this package is as following:

var datetime_formatter = require('datetime-formatter'); var formattedDateTime = datetime_formatter.formatDateTime(null, 'MM/DD/YYYY');

the result would be: 09/28/2017

Or you can pass your own datetime to be formatted: var datetime_formatter = require('datetime-formatter'); var formattedDateTime = datetime_formatter.formatDateTime(null, 'MM-DD-YYYY HH:mm:ss a');

Result would look like: 09-28-2017 03:47:20 PM

You can also pass your own datetime to format: var datetime_formatter = require('datetime-formatter'); var formattedDateTime = datetime_formatter.formatDateTime'09-28-2017 03:47:20 PM', 'MM/DD/YYYY HH:mm:ss');

Would result in: 09/28/2017 15:47:20

Enjoy!
