Converts a string to a time variable.
The following string formats are supported:
Mon, 02 Jan 2006 22:04:05 GMT, RFC 822 and RFC 1123
Monday, 02-Jan-06 22:04:05 GMT, RFC 850
Mon Jan 2 22:04:05 2006, ANSI-C asctime()
2006-01-02 22:04:05, an ISO 8601 subset
1136239445.00, seconds since the Unix Epoch
1136239445, seconds since the Unix Epoch
The only time zone supported is
If the string does not match one of those formats, then the fallback variable is returned instead. We recommend using a fallback that's meaningful for your particular Fastly service.
declare local var.time1 TIME;set var.time1 = std.time("Mon, 02 Jan 2006 22:04:05 GMT", now);# var.time1 is now "Mon, 02 Jan 2006 22:04:05 GMT"declare local var.time2 TIME;set var.time2 = std.time("1136239445", std.integer2time(0));# var.time2 is now "Mon, 02 Jan 2006 22:04:05 GMT"declare local var.time3 TIME;set var.time3 = std.time("Not a date", std.integer2time(-1));# var.time3 is now "datetime out of bounds"
std.time is used in the following code examples. Examples apply VCL to real-world use cases and can be deployed as they are, or adapted for your own service. See the full list of code examples for more inspiration.
Click RUN on a sample below to provision a Fastly service, execute the code on Fastly, and see how the function behaves.
Format time expressions
Format dates and times in a variety of ways.
