Calendar.jl: Calendar time for Julia

Calendar.jl is a simple, timezone-aware, localized calendar date & time module for Julia. The design is inspired by Hadley Wickham's lubridate package for R and the ISO 8601 standard.

Installation

To install the package:

julia> Pkg.add("Calendar")

Then, to load into your session:

julia> using Calendar

Calendar.jl requires the International Components for Unicode (ICU) libraries be installed on your system. It comes preinstalled on OS X and most Linux desktop distributions, but if not:

  • Arch: pacman -S icu
  • Fedora: yum install icu
  • Ubuntu: aptitude install libicu48

On Windows, binaries are available here.

Creating times

julia> t = now()
Dec 3, 2012 12:58:52 PM EST

julia> t = ymd_hms(2013, 5, 2, 13, 45, 7)
May 2, 2013 1:45:07 PM EDT

julia> t = ymd_hms(2013, 5, 2, 13, 45, 7, "PST")
May 2, 2013 1:45:07 PM PDT

String formatting & parsing

julia> t = ymd_hms(2013, 3, 10, 1, 59, 59)
Mar 10, 2013 1:59:59 AM EST

julia> s = format("yyyy-MMMM-dd HH:mm:ss V", t)
"2013-March-10 01:59:59 EST"

julia> t2 = Calendar.parse("yyyy-MMMM-dd HH:mm:ss V", s)
Mar 10, 2013 1:59:59 AM EST

julia> t == t2
true

The format patterns are from Unicode Technical Standard #35. See here for details on ICU's implementation.

Extracting & setting fields

julia> t
May 2, 2013 1:45:07 PM PDT

julia> month(t)
5

julia> week(t)
18

Available fields:

year(d)
month(d) numbered 1-12
week(d) week of year
day(d) day of month
dayofyear(d)
dayofweek(d) Sunday = 1, ..., Saturday = 7
hour(d) 24hr clock
hour12(d) 12hr clock
minute(d)
second(d)

The two-argument form lets you set individual fields:

julia> t2 = now()
Dec 3, 2012 3:53:08 PM EST

julia> minute(t2, 7)
Dec 3, 2012 3:07:08 PM EST

julia> year(t2, 1984)
Dec 3, 1984 3:07:08 PM EST

Tests

julia> t
May 2, 2013 1:45:07 PM PDT

julia> isAM(t)
false
isAM(d) is time before noon?
isPM(d) is time after noon?
isleapyear(d) is leap year?

Durations

julia> t
May 2, 2013 1:45:07 PM PDT

julia> t + months(2)
Jul 2, 2013 1:45:07 PM PDT

julia> t + days(60)
Jul 1, 2013 1:45:07 PM PDT

julia> d = years(1) + minutes(44)
1 year + 44 minutes

julia> t + d
May 2, 2014 2:29:07 PM PDT

Available durations: years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, seconds

Timezones

julia> est = ymd_hms(2013, 3, 10, 1, 59, 59)
Mar 10, 2013 1:59:59 AM EST

julia> pst = timezone(est, "PST")  # change timezone
Mar 9, 2013 10:59:59 PM PST

julia> est + seconds(1)      # note daylight savings time transition
Mar 10, 2013 3:00:00 AM EDT

julia> pst + seconds(1)
Mar 9, 2013 11:00:00 PM PST

Ranges

Just as 1:2:10 represents the integers 1,3,5,7,9; <time1>:<duration>:<time2> represents the times <time1>, <time1>+<duration>, <time1>+2<duration>, ...

julia> t = now()
2012-12-04 10:24:19 PM EST

julia> t2 = t + minutes(4)
2012-12-04 10:28:19 PM EST

julia> r = t:minutes(1):t2
2012-12-04 10:24:19 PM EST:1 minute:2012-12-04 10:28:19 PM EST

julia> for x in r println(x) end
2012-12-04 10:24:19 PM EST
