Formatting

format accepts a Date object (or timestamp) and a string format and returns a formatted string. See below for available format tokens.

Note: format will throw an error when passed invalid parameters

import { format } from 'fecha';

type format = (date: Date, format?: string, i18n?: I18nSettings) => str;

// Custom formats
format(new Date(2015, 10, 20), 'dddd MMMM Do, YYYY'); // 'Friday November 20th, 2015'
format(new Date(1998, 5, 3, 15, 23, 10, 350), 'YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss.SSS A'); // '1998-06-03 03:23:10.350 PM'

// Named masks
format(new Date(2015, 10, 20), 'isoDate'); // '2015-11-20'
format(new Date(2015, 10, 20), 'mediumDate'); // 'Nov 20, 2015'
format(new Date(2015, 10, 20, 3, 2, 1), 'isoDateTime'); // '2015-11-20T03:02:01-05:00'
format(new Date(2015, 2, 10, 5, 30, 20), 'shortTime'); // '05:30'

// Literals
format(new Date(2001, 2, 5, 6, 7, 2, 5), '[on] MM-DD-YYYY [at] HH:mm'); // 'on 03-05-2001 at 06:07'
Parsing

parse accepts a Date string and a string format and returns a Date object. See below for available format tokens.

NOTE: parse will throw an error when passed invalid string format or missing format. You MUST specify a format.

import { parse } from 'fecha';

type parse = (dateStr: string, format: string, i18n?: I18nSettingsOptional) => Date|null;

// Custom formats
parse('February 3rd, 2014', 'MMMM Do, YYYY'); // new Date(2014, 1, 3)
parse('10-12-10 14:11:12', 'YY-MM-DD HH:mm:ss'); // new Date(2010, 11, 10, 14, 11, 12)

// Named masks
parse('5/3/98', 'shortDate'); // new Date(1998, 4, 3)
parse('November 4, 2005', 'longDate'); // new Date(2005, 10, 4)
parse('2015-11-20T03:02:01-05:00', 'isoDateTime'); // new Date(2015, 10, 20, 3, 2, 1)

// Override i18n
parse('4 de octubre de 1983', 'M de MMMM de YYYY', {
  monthNames: [
    'enero',
    'febrero',
    'marzo',
    'abril',
    'mayo',

*/

// Create a new mask
setGlobalDateMasks({
  myMask: 'HH:mm:ss YY/MM/DD';
});

// Use it
format(new Date(2014, 5, 6, 14, 10, 45), 'myMask'); // '14:10:45 14/06/06'
