Examples

Some Examples (based on examples provided by Sallar)

// default timestamp is now
$date = jDate::forge();

// pass timestamps
$date = jDate::forge(1333857600);

// pass strings to make timestamps
$date = jDate::forge('last sunday');

// get the timestamp
$date = jDate::forge('last sunday')->time(); // 1333857600

// format the timestamp
$date = jDate::forge('last sunday')->format('%B %d، %Y'); // دی 02، 1391

// get a predefined format
$date = jDate::forge('last sunday')->format('datetime'); // 1391-10-02 00:00:00
$date = jDate::forge('last sunday')->format('date'); // 1391-10-02
$date = jDate::forge('last sunday')->format('time'); // 00:00:00

// amend the timestamp value, relative to existing value
$date = jDate::forge('2012-10-12')->reforge('+ 3 days')->format('date'); // 1391-07-24

// get relative 'ago' format
$date = jDate::forge('now - 10 minutes')->ago() // ۱۰ دقیقه پیش

Formatting

For help in building your formats, checkout the PHP strftime() docs.

Notes

The class relies on strtotime() to make sense of your strings, and strftime() to make the format changes. Just always check the time() output to see if you get false timestamps... which means the class couldn't understand what you were telling it.
