Catalyst::Plugin::DateTime - DateTime plugin for Catalyst.


    # In your application class 
    use Catalyst qw/DateTime/;

    # Use DateTime objects within your Catalyst app:
    my $dt = $c->datetime(); # will return a DateTime object with local date and time
    my $dt = $c->datetime(year => '2005', month => '01');
    $c->datetime->mdy(); # returns current date in mdy format (i.e. 01/01/2006)

    $c->dt(time_zone => 'Asia/Taipei'); # returns current date & time for argued time zone



Returns a DateTime object. If params are argued they will be passed to the DateTime->new() method. Exceptions thrown by DateTime will be caught by Catalyst::Exception.

If the argument list is empty, a DateTime object with the local date and time obtained via DateTime->now() will be returned.

Uses time_zone => local as a default.


Alias to datetime.


This module's intention is to make the wonders of DateTime easily accesible within a Catalyst application via the Catalyst::Plugin interface.

It adds the methods datetime and dt to the Catalyst namespace.
