local-time is a library for manipulating date and time information in a semi-standard manner. It is based almost entirely off of Erik Naggum's paper, The Long, Painful History of Time. It includes such features as:

  • Time and date arithmetic
  • ISO 8601 timestring formatted output and parsing
  • Reader macros to embed timestrings directly in code
  • Timezone handling (will read unix tzfile format)
  • Conversion between universal and unix time epochs
  • Julian date calculation
This library is still under development. Contributors and feedback are both very welcome.

The maintainer of this project is Daniel Lowe. The last update was 1.0.6 on 2015-05-27.
