date

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

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

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.
