datetimeformat (datetime, format='medium', locale=None)

To format a proper date (this is created by the datetime type) into a string this filter can be used. It will automatically format based on the language used by the current context which is based on the locale of the current alt.

A different language can be provided with the locale parameter.

The following formats are locale specific:

Format How it Looks
full Wednesday, January 13, 2016 at 7:08:35 AM GMT+00:00
long January 13, 2016 at 7:08:35 AM +0000
medium Jan 13, 2016, 7:08:35 AM
short 1/13/16, 7:08 AM

In addition to that format codes from the CLDR project can be used. For more information see CLDR Date/Time Symbols.


<p>Date: {{ this.pub_date|datetimeformat('full') }}

Or with custom CLDR format strings:

<p>Date: {{ this.pub_date|datetimeformat('yyyyy.MMMM.dd GGG hh:mm a') }}
