Date and time in ruby

24 January 2015

Time.now will give you the current date (and time), like so:

Time.now 2012-11-22 22:35:01 +0000

You can also request all the date parts individually:

Time.now.hour 22 Time.now.min 35 Time.now.sec 01 Time.now.day 22 Time.now.month 11 Time.now.year 2012

Cool (and easy), right? If you want to change a date, you can add seconds to it:

t = Time.now 2012-11-22 22:35:01 +0000 t2 = t + 10 # 10 Seconds 2012-11-22 22:35:11 +0000 t3 = t + 10*60 # 10 minutes 2012-11-22 22:45:01 +0000 t4 = t ...
