NAME

Template::Plugin::DateTime - A Template Plugin To Use DateTime Objects

SYNOPSIS

  [% USE date = DateTime(year = 2004, month = 4, day = 1) %]

  [% USE date = DateTime(today = 1) %]
  Today is [% date.year %]/[% date.month %]/[% date.day %].
  [% date.add(days => 32) %]
  32 days from today is [% date.year %]/[% date.month %]/[% date.day %].

DESCRIPTION

The basic idea to use a DateTime plugin is as follows:

  USE date = DateTime(year = 2004, month = 4, day = 1);

-OR-

by passing a pattern to parse a date by string using DateTime::Format::Strptime

        USE date = DateTime(from_string => '2008-05-30 00:00:00', pattern => '%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S', time_zone => 'America/New_York');

METHODS

new

This is used internally. You won't be using it from your templates.

CONSTRUCTOR

The constructor is exactly the same as that of Datetime.pm, except you can pass optional parameters to it to toggle between different underlying DateTime constructors.

from_epoch

Creates a Datetime object by calling DateTime::from_epoch(). The value for the from_epoch parameter must be a number representing UNIX epoch.

  [% epoch = ...  %]
  [% USE date = DateTime(from_epoch = epoch) %]
now

Creates a DateTime object by calling DateTime::now(). The value for the c<now> parameter is a boolean value.

  [% USE date = DateTime(now = 1) %]
  [% USE date = Datetime(now = 1, time_zone => 'Asia/Tokyo') %]
today

Creates a DateTime object by calling DateTime::today(). The value for the c<today> parameter is a boolean value.

  [% USE date = DateTime(today = 1) %]
from_object

Creates a DateTime object by calling DateTime::from_object(). The value for the from_object must be an object implementing the utc_rd_values() method, as described in DateTime.pm

  [% USE date = DateTime(from_object = other_date) %]
last_day_of_month

Creates a DateTime object by calling DateTime::last_day_of_month(). The value for the c<last_day_of_month> parameter is a boolean value, and year and month parameters must be specified.

  [% USE date = DateTime(last_day_of_month = 1, year = 2004, month = 4 ) %]
from_string

Creates a DateTime object by calling DateTime::Format::Strptime The value for the c<from_string> parameter is a string value, and pattern parameters is optional and defaults to '%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S'. See DateTime::Format::Strptime for other optional parameters.

  [% USE date = DateTime(from_string => '2008-05-30 10:00:00', pattern => '%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S') %]
