Time zones for fugit and for rufus-scheduler. Urbi et Orbi.

EtOrbi::EoTime instances quack like Ruby Time instances, but their #zone returns a TZInfo::TimeZone instance.

Getting EoTime instances:

require 'et-orbi'

EtOrbi.now
  # => #<EtOrbi::EoTime:0x007f94d94 ...>
EtOrbi.now('Asia/Singapore')
  # => #<EtOrbi::EoTime:0x39c96e48 @time=nil, @zone=#<TZInfo::DataTimezone: Asia/Singapore>...>
EtOrbi.parse('2017-12-13 13:00:00 America/Jamaica')
  # => #<EtOrbi::EoTime:0x007f94d90 @zone=#<TZInfo::DataTimezone: America/Jamaica>...>
EtOrbi.make_time(Time.now)
  # => #<EtOrbi::EoTime:0x007f94d91 ...>

EtOrbi.make_time(2017, 1, 31, 12, 'Europe/Moscow').to_debug_s
  # => 'ot 2017-01-31 12:00:00 +03:00 dst:false'

EtOrbi::EoTime.new(0, 'UTC').to_s
  # => "1970-01-01 00:00:00 +0000"
EtOrbi::EoTime.new(0, 'Europe/Moscow').to_s
  # => "1970-01-01 03:00:00 +0300"
EtOrbi::EoTime.new(0, 'Europe/Moscow').to_zs
  # => "1970-01-01 03:00:00 Europe/Moscow" # "be precise in your speech"

EtOrbi.parse('1970-01-01 03:00:00 Europe/Moscow')
  # => #<EtOrbi::EoTime:0x00007fa4bc83fcd0
  #  @seconds=0.0, @zone=#<TZInfo::DataTimezone: Europe/Moscow>, @time=nil>

More about EtOrbi::EoTime instances:

eot = EtOrbi::EoTime.new(0, 'Europe/Moscow')

eot.to_local_time.class  # => Time
eot.to_local_time.to_s   # => "1970-01-01 09:00:00 +0900" (at least on my system)

# For the rest, EtOrbi::EoTime mimicks ::Time

Helper methods:

require 'et-orbi'

EtOrbi.get_tzone('Europe/Vilnius')
  # => #<TZInfo::DataTimezone: Europe/Vilnius>
EtOrbi.local_tzone
  # => #<TZInfo::TimezoneProxy: Asia/Tokyo>

EtOrbi.platform_info
  # => "(etz:nil,tnz:\"JST\",tzid:nil,rv:\"2.2.6\",rp:\"x86_64-darwin14\",eov:\"1.0.1\",
  #      rorv:nil,astz:nil,debian:nil,centos:nil,osx:\"Asia/Tokyo\")"
    #
    # etz: ENV['TZ']
    # tnz: Time.now.zone
    # tzid: defined?(TZInfo::Data)
    # rv: RUBY_VERSION
    # rp: RUBY_PLATFORM
    # eov: EtOrbi::VERSION
    # rorv: Rails::VERSION::STRING
    # astz: ActiveSupport provided Time.zone

Chronic integration

By default, et-orbi relies on Chronic to parse strings like "tomorrow" or "friday 1pm", if Chronic is present.

EtOrbi.parse('tomorrow')
  # => #<EtOrbi::EoTime:0x007fbc6aa8a560
  #      @seconds=1575687600.0,
  #      @zone=#<TZInfo::TimezoneProxy: Asia/Tokyo>,
  #      @time=nil>
EtOrbi.parse('tomorrow').to_s
  # => "2019-12-07 12:00:00 +0900"

This is a poor design choice I replicated from rufus-scheduler.

Of course this leads to issues.

It's probably better to have Chronic do its work outside of et-orbi, like in:

EtOrbi.parse(Chronic.parse('tomorrow').to_s).to_s
  # => "2019-12-07 12:00:00 +0900"

If one has Chronic present in their project but doesn't want it to interfere with et-orbi, it can be disabled at parse call:

EtOrbi.parse('tomorrow')
  # => #<EtOrbi::EoTime:0x007ffb5b2a2390
  #      @seconds=1575687600.0,
  #      @zone=#<TZInfo::TimezoneProxy: Asia/Tokyo>,
  #      @time=nil>
EtOrbi.parse('tomorrow', enable_chronic: false)
  # ArgumentError: No time information in "tomorrow"
  #   from /home/jmettraux/w/et-orbi/lib/et-orbi/make.rb:31:in `rescue in parse'

or at the et-orbi level:

irb(main):007:0> EtOrbi.chronic_enabled = false
  # => false
irb(main):008:0> EtOrbi.chronic_enabled?
  # => false
EtOrbi.parse('tomorrow')
  # ArgumentError: No time information in "tomorrow"
  #   from /home/jmettraux/w/et-orbi/lib/et-orbi/make.rb:31:in `rescue in parse'

Rails?

If Rails is present, Time.zone is provided and EtOrbi will use it, unless ENV['TZ'] is set to a valid timezone name. Setting ENV['TZ'] to nil can give back precedence to Time.zone.

Rails sets its timezone under config/application.rb.
