date

v1.9.1

Converts a timestamp into another date format. LiquidJS tries to be conformant with Shopify/Liquid which is using Ruby’s core Time#strftime(string). The input is firstly converted to Date object via new Date().

Input

{{ article.published_at | date: "%a, %b %d, %y" }}

Output

Fri, Jul 17, 15
TimeZone

Date will be converted to local time before output. To avoid that, you can set timezoneOffset LiquidJS option to 0, its default value is your local timezone offset which can be obtained by new Date().getTimezoneOffset().

Input

{{ article.published_at | date: "%Y" }}

Output

2015

date works on strings if they contain well-formatted dates:

Input

{{ "March 14, 2016" | date: "%b %d, %y" }}

Output

Mar 14, 16
Timestamp Strings

Note that LiquidJS is using JavaScript [Date][newDate] to parse the input string, that means IETF-compliant RFC 2822 timestamps and strings in a version of ISO8601 are supported.

To get the current time, pass the special word "now" (or "today") to date:

Input

This page was last updated at {{ "now" | date: "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M" }}.

Output

This page was last updated at 2020-03-25 15:57.
now

Note that the value will be the current time of when the page was last generated from the template, not when the page is presented to a user if caching or static site generation is involved.
