Swift version: 5.0
JSONEncoder to encode dates, there are a handful of built-in date formats you can choose from. If none of them fit your needs, why not make your own? You can configure a
DateFormatter using whatever date and time format you want, then pass that to the
JSONEncoder as its
dateEncodingStrategy property, like this:
let encoder = JSONEncoder() let formatter = DateFormatter() formatter.dateStyle = .full formatter.timeStyle = .full encoder.dateEncodingStrategy = .formatted(formatter)
That converts any
Date properties to be the fullest possible string for your locale, e.g. "Monday, February 5, 2018 at 9:28:10 PM Greenwich Mean Time”.
