Lightweight date operations library.

Installation

$ yarn add @shopify/dates

Usage

This library exports helpers that allow apps to easily work with dates and timezones. Optional time zone parameters that are omitted are inferred as local.

applyTimeZoneOffset

Takes in a date object and two optional time zone string parameters. Returns a new date object with the offset between the time zones added to it. We can also assume the passed date is in the first time zone and we want to calculate it in the second time zone.

import {applyTimeZoneOffset} from '@shopify/dates';

const date = new Date('2018-06-01Z14:00');
const timeZone1 = 'Australia/Perth';
const timeZone2 = 'America/Toronto';

const newDate = applyTimeZoneOffset(date, timeZone1, timeZone2); //'2018-06-01T02:00:00.000Z'

formatDate

Takes in a date object and two additional parameters, the locale and an optional options object. Returns a new date string with the applied locale and options.

import {formatDate} from '@shopify/dates';

const date = new Date('2020-02-18Z14:00');
const locales = 'en';
const options = {
  timeZone: 'America/New_York',
  hour: 'numeric',
};

const newDate = formatDate(date, locales, options); // 9 AM

getDateTimeParts

Takes in a date object and an optional time zone string parameter. Returns an object with functions to get the year, month, day, weekday, hour, minute and second of the provided date.

import {getDateTimeParts} from '@shopify/dates';

const date = new Date('2018-06-01Z14:00');
const timeZone = 'Australia/Perth';

const dateTimeParts = getDateTimeParts(date, timeZone);

const year = dateTimeParts.year();
const month = dateTimeParts.month();
const day = dateTimeParts.day();
const weekday = dateTimeParts.weekday();
const hour = dateTimeParts.hour();
const minute = dateTimeParts.minute();
const second = dateTimeParts.second();

getTimeZoneOffset

Takes in a date object and two optional time zone string parameters. Returns a number representing the offset between the two provided time zones in minutes.

import {getTimeZoneOffset} from '@shopify/dates';

const date = new Date('2018-06-01Z14:00');
const timeZone1 = 'America/Toronto';
const timeZone2 = 'Australia/Perth';

const timeZoneOffset = getTimeZoneOffset(date, timeZone1, timeZone2);

isFutureDate

Takes in a date object and an optional now date object to compare against (defaulting to a new date object). Returns a boolean indicating whether or not the first date is in the future.

import {isFutureDate} from '@shopify/dates';

const now = new Date('2018-01-01Z00:00');
const date = new Date('2018-01-02Z23:59');

const futureDay = isFutureDate(date, now);

isLessThanOneDayAgo

Takes in a date object and an optional "now" date object (that defaults to new Date()). Returns a boolean indicating whether or not the date is less than one day before the "now" date.

import {isLessThanOneDayAgo} from '@shopify/dates';

const moreThanOneDayAgo = new Date('2018-01-01Z00:00');
const lessThanOneDayAgo = new Date(Date.now() - 23 * TimeUnit.Hour);

isLessThanOneDayAgo(moreThanOneDayAgo); // false
isLessThanOneDayAgo(lessThanOneDayAgo); // true

isLessThanOneHourAgo

Takes in a date object and an optional "now" date object (that defaults to new Date()). Returns a boolean indicating whether or not the date is less than one hour before the "now" date.

import {isLessThanOneHourAgo} from '@shopify/dates';

const moreThanOneHourAgo = new Date('2018-01-01Z00:00');
const lessThanOneHourAgo = new Date(Date.now() - 59 * TimeUnit.Minute);

isLessThanOneHourAgo(moreThanOneHourAgo); // false
isLessThanOneHourAgo(lessThanOneHourAgo); // true

isLessThanOneMinuteAgo

Takes in a date object and an optional "now" date object (that defaults to new Date()). Returns a boolean indicating whether or not the date is less than one minute before the "now" date.

import {isLessThanOneMinuteAgo} from '@shopify/dates';

const moreThanOneMinuteAgo = new Date('2018-01-01Z00:00');
const lessThanOneMinuteAgo = new Date(Date.now() - 59 * TimeUnit.Second);

isLessThanOneMinuteAgo(moreThanOneMinuteAgo); // false
isLessThanOneMinuteAgo(lessThanOneMinuteAgo); // true

isLessThanOneWeekAgo

Takes in a date object and an optional "now" date object (that defaults to new Date()). Returns a boolean indicating whether or not the date is less than one week before the "now" date.

import {isLessThanOneWeekAgo} from '@shopify/dates';

const moreThanOneWeekAgo = new Date('2018-01-01Z00:00');
const lessThanOneWeekAgo = new Date(Date.now() - 6 * TimeUnit.Day);

isLessThanOneWeekAgo(moreThanOneWeekAgo); // false
isLessThanOneWeekAgo(lessThanOneWeekAgo); // true

isLessThanOneWeekAway

Takes in a date object and an optional "now" date object (that defaults to new Date()). Returns a boolean indicating whether or not the date is less than one week after the "now" date.

import {isLessThanOneWeekAway} from '@shopify/dates';

const moreThanOneWeekAway = new Date(Date.now() + 8 * TimeUnit.Day);
const lessThanOneWeekAway = new Date(Date.now() + 6 * TimeUnit.Day);

isLessThanOneWeekAway(moreThanOneWeekAway); // false
isLessThanOneWeekAway(lessThanOneWeekAway); // true

isLessThanOneYearAgo

Takes in a date object and an optional "now" date object (that defaults to new Date()). Returns a boolean indicating whether or not the date is less than one year before the "now" date.

import {isLessThanOneYearAgo} from '@shopify/dates';

const moreThanOneYearAgo = new Date('2018-01-01Z00:00');
const lessThanOneYearAgo = new Date(Date.now() - 51 * TimeUnit.Week);

isLessThanOneYearAgo(moreThanOneYearAgo); // false
isLessThanOneYearAgo(lessThanOneYearAgo); // true

isLessThanOneYearAway

Takes in a date object and an optional "now" date object (that defaults to new Date()). Returns a boolean indicating whether or not the date is less than one year after the "now" date.

const deprecatedTimeZone = 'Cuba';
const correctTimeZone = mapDeprecatedTimezones(deprecatedTimeZone); // In this case, returns 'America/Havana'
