WTF, JS dates
But, today, I’m stuck in front of a very… annoying problem.
Now, the problem that I’m facing is that I have a formatted ISO8601 date, freshly taken from my local PostgreSQL installation, but when I try to “prettify” it, either I must parse and rebuild the string by hand, or use a third-party library.
For a date format.
Without any conversion.
Am I the only one not thinking that it’s normal ?
Why the fuck should I use a third-party library to pretty much do a
str_replace('2019-09-09T00:00:00', 'T', ' '); instead of using
a standard method?
PHP has it, Java has it, Golang has it, Rust has it. Even fucking C has everything in its standard library to effortlessly format a date.
And you tell me that the most “hyped” technology nowadays doesn’t have a fucking date format that doesn’t do some ignorable time-zone work?
If I don’t use a fucking third-party library?
Why should I bear another license, node module (potentially node module tree, if they didn’t want to bother writing
x % 2 === 0),
dependency that may be broken, flawed, and 3rd-party system?
