The README.md

Timezone Select Form Builder

This is a helper function that creates a select menu including timezones in human-readable format. Each underlying key is the php-friendly name for the timezone, making it easy to immediately store and use them. The array of timezones and their underlying keys were taken from the repository by tamaspap., (*1)

Installation

Recommended installation of this package is through composer. Include the following in your project's composer.json file:, (*2)

"require": {
    "camroncade/timezone": "0.1"
}

Next, update Composer from the Terminal:, (*3)

composer update

Once this operation completes, the final step is to add the service provider. Open app/config/app., and add a new item to the service providers array., (*4)

'Camroncade\Timezone\TimezoneServiceProvider'

Now it's ready for use!, (*5)

Usage

Timezone Convert Helper Functions

The package includes two helper functions that make it easy to deal with displaying and storing timezones, convertFromUTC() and convertToUTC():, (*6)

Each function accepts two required parameters and a third optional parameter dealing with the format of the returned timestamp., (*7)

convertFromUTC($timestamp, $timezone, $format);
convertToUTC($timestamp, $timezone, $format);

The first parameter accepts a timestamp, the second accepts the name of the timezone that you are converting to/from. The option values associated with the timezones included in the select form builder can be plugged into here as is. Alternatively, you can use any of PHP's supported timezones., (*8)

The third parameter is optional, and default is set to 'Y-m-d H:i:s', which is how Laravel natively stores datetimes into the database (the created_at and updated_at columns)., (*9)

Select Form Builder

The package also includes a helper function for the creation of the select option. This is created by calling Timezone::selectForm()., (*10)

The method selectForm accepts four optional parameters, string selected, placeholder, array formAttributes, and array optionAttributes. An example of it's use is shown below:, (*11)

$selected = 'US/Central';
$placeholder = 'Select a timezone';
$formAttributes = array('class' => 'swegForm', 'style' => 'float:left;', 'name' => 'timezone');
$optionAttributes = array('customValue' => 'true');

Timezone::selectForm($selected, $placeholder, $formAttributes, $optionAttributes);

Note that the $selected parameter matches the string to the values on each option, not the display text. The paratmeters $formAttributes and $optionAttributes can be used for styling, roles, and generally anything you need. This is useful for applying Twitter Bootstrap styling., (*12)

Simply returning Timezone::selectForm() will output the following:, (*13)
