Is it daylight savings time?
Designed for use in node as well as in-browser.
Returns true if the date is during daylight savings time.
(window || require('dst')).is_dst(date, [thresholds])
Available either directly via
require or on the window object,
is the function underlying the prototype method.
It accepts an additional
thresholds argument, which should take the following
"spring_forward":<integer offset from beginning of year in milliseconds>"fall_back":<integer offset from beginning of year in milliseconds>
spring_forwardneed not be before
fall_back-- in fact, in 50% of earthly hemispheres, it's just the opposite situation.
further, in other saner lands, there may be no thresholds to cross -- that is, there are happy, productive human beings that somehow survive without DST. in that case, both fields may be set to
Splits the year in two halves, and attempts to check at which point in the hemi-year
Date#getTimezoneOffset changes values. Run once during the execution of the program.
Uses a binary search -- cuts out at the granularity of one second.
May be used to provide valid
thresholds to pass into
is_dst, if so desired.
