Timepiece – Swift Library That Dramatically Simplifies Working With Dates

Timepiece is an open source Swift library from Naoto Kaneko for working with dates with clean and intuitive syntax that works with iOS, macOS, tvOS and watchOS.

In addition to simple date creation Timepiece supports date calculations, formatting, and parsing of dates.

These code snippets from the readme show the syntax of using Timepiece:

Date(era: 235, year: 26, month: 8, day: 14, hour: 20, minute: 25, second: 43, nanosecond: 0, on: Calendar(identifier: .japanese))
Date(year: 2014, month: 8, day: 14, hour: 20, minute: 25, second: 43, nanosecond: 0)
Date(year: 2014, month: 8, day: 14, hour: 20, minute: 25, second: 43)
Date(year: 2014, month: 8, day: 14)

Date.today()
Date.yesterday()
Date.tomorrow()

now + 1.year
now - 2.months
now + (3.weeks - 4.days + 5.hours)

1.year.later
1.year.ago

now.string(inDateStyle: .long, andTimeStyle: .medium)
now.dateString(in: .medium)
now.timeString(in: .short)

3.days.string(in: .full)

"2014/8/14".date(inFormat: "yyyy/MM/dd")
"2014-08-14T20:25:43+0900".dateInISO8601Format()

You can find Timepiece on Github here.

A nice Swift library for working with dates.
