    dotnet-format

    npm: dotnet-format License

    It's 2020, and we still have no built-in tools to convert a date, number, or any other entity into a string using a custom format. Since I often write .NET programs, it looks like wildness to me, so I decided to port awesome .NET formatting operations for JS environment.

    Date formatting operations

    Examples

    There're 3 ways to format date with this package.

    1. Import formatDate(date: Date, format: string, culture?: string) function from the main module:
    import { formatDate } from "dotnet-format";
     
    let date = new Date(0);
     
    console.log(formatDate(date, "dd MM yyyy")); // 01 01 1970
    console.log(formatDate(date, "d MMM yyyy")); // 1 Jan 1970
    console.log(formatDate(date, "d MMM yyyy", "fr")); // 1 janv. 1970
    console.log(formatDate(date, "dd/MM/yyyy HH:mm")); // 01/01/1970 00:00
    console.log(formatDate(date, "U")); // Thursday, January 01, 1970, 12:00:00 AM
    1. Extend date protototype with format(format: string, culture?: string) function:
    import * from "dotnet-format/extensions/date/format";
     
    let date = new Date(0);
     
    console.log(date.format("dd MM yyyy")); // 01 01 1970
    console.log(date.format("d MMM yyyy")); // 1 Jan 1970
    console.log(date.format("d MMM yyyy", "fr")); // 1 janv. 1970
    console.log(date.format("dd/MM/yyyy HH:mm")); // 01/01/1970 00:00
    console.log(date.format("U")); // Thursday, January 01, 1970, 12:00:00 AM
    1. Extend date protototype with toString(format?: string, culture?: string) function:
    import * from "dotnet-format/extensions/date/toString";
     
    let date = new Date(0);
     
    console.log(date.toString("dd MM yyyy")); // 01 01 1970
    console.log(date.toString("d MMM yyyy")); // 1 Jan 1970
    console.log(date.toString("d MMM yyyy", "fr")); // 1 janv. 1970
    console.log(date.toString("dd/MM/yyyy HH:mm")); // 01/01/1970 00:00
    console.log(date.toString("U")); // Thursday, January 01, 1970, 12:00:00 AM

    Standard date and time format strings

    A standard date and time format string uses a single character as the format specifier to define the text representation of a Date value. Any date and time format string that contains more than one character, including white space, is interpreted as a custom date and time format string.

    The following table describes the standard date and time format specifiers:

    Custom date and time format strings

    A date and time format string defines the text representation of a Date value that results from a formatting operation.
