Magic Lambda Dates

Date manipulation slots for Magic. More specifically, this project contains the following slots.

Notice - Internally in Magic, everything is UTC Universal timezone, implying if you want to render it in user’s timezone, you’ll have to convert it explicitly in your client/frontend. All dates and times internally in Magic, also those stored into any database, are treated as UTC timezone. All dates transmitted to the backend, is also assumed to be UTC. This is to make things simple in regards to interacting with database systems, that may or may not add support for timezone offsets.

Below is an example of taking the current date and time, and adding two days and one second to it, for then to format the result as a string.

   format:"yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss"
