Discussion on Date Formatting and Time Zone Handling in WeWeb and Xano

In this State Changers meeting, the participants discussed converting and formatting time and date information using WeWeb and Xano. The primary task was to separate the date and time data and adjust it based on user location. The intuitive way to achieve this was decided to involve passing data from the back end in universal time code (UTC) and then have the front end (WeWeb, in this case) format this information according to the user's location. This process involves using JavaScript to implement changes on WeWeb since the browser inherently recognizes the user's timezone.

The discussants also touched on leveraging UNIX's timestamp (counting the number of seconds since January 1, 1970), feeding it into WeWeb, and modifying it based on user location. Note that this approach would involve using a code block as part of the workflow because WeWeb seemingly lacks a built-in function to allow such conversions easily. For a starting point, they recommend formatting in Lisbon's timezone (CEST) instead of UTC for testing purposes. This discussion offers valuable insights for anyone involved in manipulating date and time data for user-specific localization using web-based platforms like WeWeb and Xano.
