Multiple Datetime Formats in PHP

Release DateNov 29, 2017
Change Type
Platforms Affected

We have now added support for multiple datetime formats in our PHP SDKs. The following formats are supported:

  • RFC1123 Datetime: Mon, 15 Jun 2009 20:45:30 GMT
  • RFC3339 Datetime: 2016-03-13T12:52:32.123Z
  • Unix Timestamp: 1480809600

Implementation details

Our PHP SDKs use the PHP DateTime class to provide this support.

Additional details

Multiple DateTime formats are also supported in Java, Android, Objective-C, C#, Python, Ruby, AngularJS and NodeJS.

You can find more information about supported datetime formats as well as other types here.


DateTime implementation in our SDKs can help you:

  • Focus on building the application logic instead of worrying about date/time serialization/deserialization
  • Handle different formats of datetime, according to what your API requires, without writing any code for it
  • Save time zone specific information (if required)
  • Avoid the hassle of configuring and consuming a 3rd party library for datetime manipulation
