Installation

Download latest jquery.dateFormat.js or jquery.dateFormat.min.js.

You can use jquery-dateFormat without jQuery. You just need to import the dateFormat.js above and instead of formatting with $.format(...) you should use DateFormat.format(...).

If you use jQuery Validate plugin you must use jquery-dateFormat without jQuery.

Format patterns

The patterns to formatting are based on java.text.SimpleDateFormat.

Date and time patterns

  • yy = short year
  • yyyy = long year
  • M = month (1-12)
  • MM = month (01-12)
  • MMM = month abbreviation (Jan, Feb ... Dec)
  • MMMM = long month (January, February ... December)
  • d = day (1 - 31)
  • dd = day (01 - 31)
  • ddd = day of the week in words (Monday, Tuesday ... Sunday)
  • E = short day of the week in words (Mon, Tue ... Sun)
  • D - Ordinal day (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 21st, 22nd, 23rd, 31st, 4th...)
  • h = hour in am/pm (0-12)
  • hh = hour in am/pm (00-12)
  • H = hour in day (0-23)
  • HH = hour in day (00-23)
  • mm = minute
  • ss = second
  • SSS = milliseconds
  • a = AM/PM marker
  • p = a.m./p.m. marker

Expected input dates formats

  • 1982-10-15T01:10:20+02:00
  • 1982-10-15T01:10:20Z
  • Thu Oct 15 01:10:20 CET 1982
  • 1982-10-15 01:10:20.546
  • Thu Oct 15 1982 01:10:20 GMT-0800 (PST)
  • Thu Oct 15 1982 01:10:20 GMT+0800 (China Standard Time)
  • Thu Oct 15 1982 01:10:20 GMT+0200 (W. Europe Daylight Time)
  • 1982-10-15CET01:10:20
  • JavaScript: new Date().getTime()

Some examples.

Usage

 <script>
   document.write($.format.date("2009-12-18 10:54:50.546", "Test: dd/MM/yyyy"));
   document.write($.format.date("Wed Jan 13 10:43:41 CET 2010", "dd~MM~yyyy"));
 </script>

Output

 => Test: 18/12/2009
 => 13~01~2010

Formatting using css classes

  <span class="shortDateFormat">2009-12-18 10:54:50.546</span>
  <span class="longDateFormat">2009-12-18 10:54:50.546</span>
  jQuery(function() {
      var shortDateFormat = 'dd/MM/yyyy';
      var longDateFormat  = 'dd/MM/yyyy HH:mm:ss';

      jQuery(".shortDateFormat").each(function (idx, elem) {
          if (jQuery(elem).is(":input")) {
              jQuery(elem).val(jQuery.format.date(jQuery(elem).val(), shortDateFormat));
          } else {
              jQuery(elem).text(jQuery.format.date(jQuery(elem).text(), shortDateFormat));
          }
      });
      jQuery(".longDateFormat").each(function (idx, elem) {
          if (jQuery(elem).is(":input")) {
              jQuery(elem).val(jQuery.format.date(jQuery(elem).val(), longDateFormat));
          } else {
              jQuery(elem).text(jQuery.format.date(jQuery(elem).text(), longDateFormat));
          }
      });
  });

Output

 => 18/12/2009
 => 18/12/2009 10:54:50

Pretty date formatting

jQuery.format.prettyDate(value) returns a string representing how long ago the date represents

  • value = String representing ISO time or date in milliseconds or javascript Date object
 jQuery.format.prettyDate(new Date())             // => "just now"
 jQuery.format.prettyDate(new Date().getTime())   // => "just now"
 jQuery.format.prettyDate("2008-01-28T20:24:17Z") // => "2 hours ago"
 jQuery.format.prettyDate("2008-01-27T22:24:17Z") // => "Yesterday"
 jQuery.format.prettyDate("2008-01-26T22:24:17Z") // => "2 days ago"
 jQuery.format.prettyDate("2008-01-14T22:24:17Z") // => "2 weeks ago"
 jQuery.format.prettyDate("2007-12-15T22:24:17Z") // => "more than 5 weeks ago"

toBrowserTimeZone

jQuery.format.toBrowserTimeZone(value, format) converts into browsers timezone.

  • value = String representing date in ISO time ("2013-09-14T23:22:33Z") or String representing default JAXB formatting of java.util.Date ("2013-09-14T16:22:33.527-07:00") or String representing Unix Timestamp (Sat Sep 14 2013 16:22:33 GMT-0700 (PDT)) or javascript date object.
  • format = All input formats valid for jQuery.format.date are valid for this method. The defaut format is MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss.

Valid input formats

 var date1 = "2013-09-14T23:22:33Z";
 var date2 = "2013-09-14T16:22:33.527-07:00";
 var date3 = "Sat Sep 14 2013 16:22:33 GMT-0700 (PDT)";

 $.format.toBrowserTimeZone(date1)
 $.format.toBrowserTimeZone(date2)
 $.format.toBrowserTimeZone(date3)
