πŸ†• Format Date Plugin

I’m making a new column each morning with my coffee. This morning I made Format Date:

Please give it a whirl! I am also taking requests for new columns.

Hola @david

How about a column where you input two dates and it gives you an array of the dates in between.

Ex:
input 1: 10/12/2021
Input 2: 10/20/2021

Result:
10/13/2021, 10/14/2021, 10/15/2021, 10/16/2021, 10/17/2021, 10/18/2021, 10/19/2021

That could be a very big array!

I know.

But it could be useful if you are creating a scheduling app that involves days like a hotel or car rental situation.

Giddy-up! Where should we make these requests?

Here, I guess!

What about selected text?
If you select a text inside a TEXT BOX and pass it to a plugin to calculate the starting and end position would be nice to create a TEXT FORMAT.

This is amazing…Now I can grab the offset of date/time!

@Robert_Petitto So much for all the hard work I put into automatically figuring out the offset. This is much easier.

@david this is a lovely addition!

Can this do units of time, such as unix time or the decimal representation of a date?

@david An address lookup would be amazing! For example, if I search for Hyatt Regency Boston, the field would populate the address. Or something to that nature.

This is great stuff!!

@Robert_Petitto can you say more about escaped text and website validator?

I think it’s also called fuzzy dates. I was just thinking about that too.

I would like to see a raw math column that lets me plug in a complete formula from a user entered string. Something so I’m not tied to a preset formula in a math column.

Cool, in French :slight_smile:


But the input Date has to comply/convert to this exact format to work?
I tried with a french format JJ/MM/AAAA and an appropriate token like DDD, it does not seem to react.
Thks, David :cherry_blossom:
