module Sequel::Timezones

  1. lib/sequel/timezones.rb

Sequel doesn't pay much attention to timezones by default, but you can set it handle timezones if you want. There are three separate timezone settings, application_timezone, database_timezone, and typecast_timezone. All three timezones have getter and setter methods. You can set all three timezones to the same value at once via Sequel.default_timezone=.

The only timezone values that are supported by default are :utc (convert to UTC), :local (convert to local time), and nil (don't convert). If you need to convert to a specific timezone, or need the timezones being used to change based on the environment (e.g. current user), you need to use the named_timezones extension (and use DateTime as the datetime_class). Sequel also ships with a thread_local_timezones extensions which allows each thread to have its own timezone values for each of the timezones.


application_timezone [R]

The timezone you want the application to use. This is the timezone that incoming times from the database and typecasting are converted to.

database_timezone [R]

The timezone for storage in the database. This is the timezone to which Sequel will convert timestamps before literalizing them for storage in the database. It is also the timezone that Sequel will assume database timestamp values are already in (if they don't include an offset).

typecast_timezone [R]

The timezone that incoming data that Sequel needs to typecast is assumed to be already in (if they don't include an offset).

Public Instance methods

application_to_database_timestamp (v)

Convert the given Time/DateTime object into the database timezone, used when literalizing objects in an SQL string.

   # File lib/sequel/timezones.rb
40 def application_to_database_timestamp(v)
41   convert_output_timestamp(v, Sequel.database_timezone)
42 end
convert_output_timestamp (v, output_timezone)

Converts the object to the given output_timezone.

   # File lib/sequel/timezones.rb
45 def convert_output_timestamp(v, output_timezone)
46   if output_timezone
47     if v.is_a?(DateTime)
48       case output_timezone
49       when :utc
50         v.new_offset(0)
51       when :local
52         v.new_offset(local_offset_for_datetime(v))

55       end
56     else

58     end
59   else
60     v
61   end
62 end
convert_timestamp (v, input_timezone)

Converts the given object from the given input timezone to the application_timezone using convert_input_timestamp and convert_output_timestamp.

[show source]
   # File lib/sequel/timezones.rb
67 def convert_timestamp(v, input_timezone)
68   begin
69     if v.is_a?(Date) && !v.is_a?(DateTime)
70       # Dates handled specially as they are assumed to already be in the application_timezone
71       if datetime_class == DateTime
72         DateTime.civil(v.year, v.month,, 0, 0, 0, application_timezone == :local ? Rational(Time.local(v.year, v.month,, 86400) : 0)
73       else
74         Time.public_send(application_timezone == :utc ? :utc : :local, v.year, v.month,
75       end
76     else
77       convert_output_timestamp(convert_input_timestamp(v, input_timezone), application_timezone)
78     end
79   rescue InvalidValue
80     raise
81   rescue => e
82     raise convert_exception_class(e, InvalidValue)
83   end
84 end
database_to_application_timestamp (v)

Convert the given object into an object of Sequel.datetime_class in the application_timezone. Used when converting datetime/timestamp columns returned by the database.

[show source]
   # File lib/sequel/timezones.rb
89 def database_to_application_timestamp(v)
90   convert_timestamp(v, Sequel.database_timezone)
91 end
default_timezone= (tz)

Sets the database, application, and typecasting timezones to the given timezone.

[show source]
   # File lib/sequel/timezones.rb
94 def default_timezone=(tz)
95   self.database_timezone = tz
96   self.application_timezone = tz
97   self.typecast_timezone = tz
98 end
typecast_to_application_timestamp (v)

Convert the given object into an object of Sequel.datetime_class in the application_timezone. Used when typecasting values when assigning them to model datetime attributes.

[show source]
    # File lib/sequel/timezones.rb
103 def typecast_to_application_timestamp(v)
104   convert_timestamp(v, Sequel.typecast_timezone)
