{{ post.published_at | date('m/d/Y') }}

For more information on how to format a date see the table below.

The date filter accepts strings. For instance, to display the current date, filter the word "now":

{{ 'now' | date('m/d/Y') }}

To escape words and characters in the date format use \\ in front of each character:

{{ post.published_at | date('F jS \\a\\t g:ia') }}

If the value passed to the date filter is null, it will return the current date by default. If an empty string is desired instead of the current date, use a ternary operator:

{{ post.published_at is empty ? '' : post.published_at | date('m/d/Y') }}

If no format is provided, Canvas will use: F j, Y H:i


By default, the date is displayed by applying the default timezone, but you can override it by explicitly specifying a timezone:

{{ post.published_at | date('m/d/Y', 'Europe/Paris') }}
