Write a date and/or time string, from a given date (or the current date/time of no special date is given) and a format string.

Could be useful for generated documents that need a date.


  1. A date format string, like the one accepted by the strftime C function.

  2. Optional, by default takes the current time. It could be an Unix timestamp, or a parseable string.

Code example

Print the current date

<<date | %Y-%m-%d>>

Print the date corresponding to a given timestamp

<<date | %Y-%m-%d | 1358709717>>
