This module is intended for processing of date strings.

Please do not modify this code without applying the changes first at Module:Date/sandbox and testing at Module:Date/sandbox/testcases and Module talk:Date/sandbox/testcases.

-- ======================================= -- === Dependencies ====================== -- ======================================= local i18n = require('Module:I18n/date') -- get localized translations of date formats local Fallback = require('Module:Fallback') -- get fallback functions local yesno = require('Module:Yesno')

--[[ Date

This function is the core part of the ISOdate template.

Usage: {#invoke:Date|Date|year=|month=|day=|hour=|minute=|second=|lang=en}}


    year,month,day,hour,minute,second: broken down date-time component strings
 lang: The language to display it in
 case: Language format (genitive, etc.) for some languages
class: CSS class for the 
Error Handling:

]] function p.Date(frame) return p._Date( { frame.args["year"] or , frame.args["month"] or , frame.args["day"] or , frame.args["hour"] or , frame.args["minute"] or , frame.args["second"]or }, frame.args["lang"], -- language frame.args["case"] or , -- allows to specify grammatical case for the month for languages that use them frame.args["class"] or 'dtstart', -- allows to set the html class of the time node where the date is included. This is useful for microformats. frame.args["trim_year"] or '100-999' -- by default pad one and 2 digit years to be 4 digit long, while keeping 3 digit years as is ) end

function p._Date(datevec, lang, case, class, trim_year) -- make sure inputs are in the right format if #datevec<6 then for i=#datevec,6,1 do datevec[i]= end end if not case then case = end if not class then class = end if not trim_year then trim_year = '100-999' end

-- if language is not provided than look up users language -- WARNING: This step should be done by the template as it does not seem to work as well here (cache issues?) if not lang or not mw.language.isValidCode( lang ) then lang = "lang" ):plain() end

-- Just in case someone broke the internationalization code than fix the english defaults if i18n.DateLang['en'] == nil then i18n.DateLang['en'] = 'en-form' end if i18n.DateFormat['en-form'] == nil then i18n.DateFormat['en-form'] = {YMDHMS='j F Y, H:i:s', YMDHM='j F Y, H:i', YMD='j F Y', YM='F Y', MD='j F', Y='Y'} end

-- create datecode based on which variables are provided and check for out of bound values local maxval = {9999, 12, 31, 23, 59, 60} -- max values for year, month, ... local c = {'Y', 'M', 'D', 'H', 'M', 'S'} local datecode = -- a string signifying which combination of variables was provided local datenum = {} -- date-time encoded as a vector = [year, month, ... , second] for i, v in ipairs( datevec ) do if v~=nil and v~= then datecode = datecode .. c[i] datenum[i] = tonumber(v) if datenum[i]==nil and i==2 then -- month is not a number -> check if it is a month name in English v ='en'):formatDate( "n", v) datenum[i] = tonumber(v) end if datenum[i]==nil or datenum[i]>maxval[i] then -- Some numbers are out of range -> abort and return the empty string return end end end

-- create time stamp string (for example 2000-02-20 02:20:20) based on which variables were provided local timeStamp if datecode == 'YMDHMS' then timeStamp = string.format('%04i-%02i-%02i %02i:%02i:%02i', datenum[1], datenum[2], datenum[3], datenum[4], datenum[5], datenum[6] ) elseif datecode == 'YMDHM' then timeStamp = string.format('%04i-%02i-%02i %02i:%02i', datenum[1], datenum[2], datenum[3], datenum[4], datenum[5] ) elseif datecode:sub(1,3)=='YMD' then timeStamp = string.format('%04i-%02i-%02i', datenum[1], datenum[2], datenum[3] ) datecode = 'YMD' -- 'YMD', 'YMDHMS' and 'YMDHM' are the only supported format starting with 'YMD'.
