Date Parser

Build Status Dub codecov

A port of the Python Dateutil date parser. This module offers a generic date/time string parser which is able to parse most known formats to represent a date and/or time. This module attempts to be forgiving with regards to unlikely input formats, returning a SysTime object even for dates which are ambiguous.

Tested with ldc v1.12.0 - v1.13.0 and dmd v2.081.2 - v2.084.0. May work with earlier versions.

Simple Example

import std.datetime;
import dateparser;

void main()
{
    assert(parse("2003-09-25") == SysTime(DateTime(2003, 9, 25)));
    assert(parse("09/25/2003") == SysTime(DateTime(2003, 9, 25)));
    assert(parse("Sep 2003")   == SysTime(DateTime(2003, 9, 1)));
}
