amp-date-display

Experimental

This example uses the following experimental feature: amp-date-display. Enable the experiment via the button below. Some components require the AMP Dev Channel to be enabled as well. Learn more about experimental features.

Introduction

The amp-date-display component renders date information in various date formats and in different locales.

Setup

Include the amp-date-display component ...

<script async custom-element="amp-date-display" src="https://cdn.ampproject.org/v0/amp-date-display-0.1.js"></script>

... and the amp-mustache component in the header

<script async custom-template="amp-mustache" src="https://cdn.ampproject.org/v0/amp-mustache-0.2.js"></script>

Basic usage

You must specify one of datetime, timestamp-ms, or timestamp-seconds attributes. This indicates the date and time to display.

The date information is rendered via an amp-mustache template.

The day, hour, minutes and seconds values are bound to , {{hour}}, {{minute}} and {{second}} respectively.

Double digit format variants ({{dayTwoDigit}}, {{hourTwoDigit}}, {{minuteTwoDigit}} and {{secondTwoDigit}}) display these values with zero-padding on single digit values. Other values like {{iso}} are also available

<amp-date-display timestamp-seconds="2147483648"
  layout="fixed-height"
  height="20">
  <template type="amp-mustache">
    <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Year_2038_problem">Y2K38</a> will be at {{iso}}
  </template>
</amp-date-display>

Available variables

All the variables that can be displayed are in the template below.

<amp-date-display datetime="now"
  layout="fixed"
  width="360"
  height="590">
  <template type="amp-mustache">

Locales

Internationalized month and weekday names can be configured by specifying a locale attribute.

For example, the amp-date-display components below show the same date information in German, French, Czech and English.

<div>
  <amp-date-display datetime="now"
    locale="de"
    layout="fixed"
    width="360"
    height="20">
    <template type="amp-mustache">
      <div>de: {{dayName}} {{day}} {{monthName}} {{year}}</div>
    </template>
  </amp-date-display>
  <amp-date-display datetime="now"
    locale="fr"
    layout="fixed"
    width="360"
    height="20">
    <template type="amp-mustache">
      <div>fr: {{dayName}} {{day}} {{monthName}} {{year}}</div>
    </template>
  </amp-date-display>
  <amp-date-display datetime="now"
    locale="cs"
    layout="fixed"
    width="360"
    height="20">
    <template type="amp-mustache">
      <div>cs: {{dayName}} {{day}} {{monthName}} {{year}}</div>
    </template>
  </amp-date-display>
  <amp-date-display datetime="now"
    locale="en-GB"
    layout="fixed"
    width="360"
    height="20">
    <template type="amp-mustache">
      <div>en-GB: {{dayName}} {{day}} {{monthName}} {{year}}</div>
