Template:Current hour offset in time zone/doc

From Safer nicotine wiki

This template gives the current hour offset from UTC time for the given time zone.

If the dst parameter is not used, it uses {{Daylight saving in time zone}} to automatically adjust the offset according to daylight saving time (DST), if applicable.

This template can be used in conjunction with {{Current minute offset in time zone}} to calculate the current time in a particular time zone. See below for the currently supported time zones.

Usage

{{Current hour offset in time zone|time zone[|dst=no]}}
([...] means optional, do not include the square brackets when using this template)

where

  • time zone is the desired time zone abbreviation (see below and also the list of time zone abbreviations);
    If no time zone is given or if the given time zone is not supported, then the output will default to 0;
    In this case, instead of giving a time zone, an offset (e.g. -3, 1, 5, etc.) can also be given;
    This exact offset will then be used as the output (this functionality is merely included for template compatibility);
  • dst is an optional parameter to disable automatic daylight saving time adjustment by setting the value to "no";
    If a DST variant of a particular time zone exists, then the time is automatically adjusted according to DST by default.

Supported time zones

Currently the following time zones are supported:

SDT - Abbreviations - DST Name SDT - Offset - DST Notes
HST Hawaii Standard Time UTC−10:00 When dst is NOT set to "no", the *T, *ST and *DT variants of a particular time zone will produce the same output and can be used interchangeably.

Otherwise (when using dst=no), *T and *ST will produce the offset without DST adjustment, and *DT will produce the offset with DST adjustment.

DST is not observed in Hawaii and in Saskatchewan, Canada (except Lloydminster, SK, where MST/MDT is observed).

HAT or HAST HADT Hawaii-Aleutian Standard/Daylight Time UTC−10:00 UTC−09:00
AKT or AKST AKDT Alaska Standard/Daylight Time UTC−09:00 UTC−08:00
PT or PST PDT Pacific Standard/Daylight Time UTC−08:00 UTC−07:00
MT or MST MDT Mountain Standard/Daylight Time UTC−07:00 UTC−06:00
SKT or SKST Saskatchewan Standard Time UTC−06:00
CT or CST CDT Central Standard/Daylight Time UTC−06:00 UTC−05:00
ET or EST EDT Eastern Standard/Daylight Time UTC−05:00 UTC−04:00
AT or AST ADT Atlantic Standard/Daylight Time UTC−04:00 UTC−03:00
NT or NST NDT Newfoundland Standard/Daylight Time UTC−03:30 UTC−02:30
GMT BST Greenwich Mean Time /
British Summer Time
UTC+00:00 UTC+01:00 When dst is NOT set to "no", both the GMT and BST variants of this time zone will produce the same output and can be used interchangeably.

Otherwise (when using dst=no), GMT will produce the offset without DST adjustment, and BST will produce the offset with DST adjustment.

WET WEST Western European (Summer) Time UTC+00:00 UTC+01:00 When dst is NOT set to "no", both the *ET and *EST variants of a particular time zone will produce the same output and can be used interchangeably.

Otherwise (when using dst=no), *ET will produce the offset without DST adjustment, and *EST will produce the offset with DST adjustment.

CET CEST Central European (Summer) Time UTC+01:00 UTC+02:00
EET EEST Eastern European (Summer) Time UTC+02:00 UTC+03:00
AWT or AWST Australian Western Standard Time UTC+08:00 When dst is NOT set to "no", the *T, *ST and *DT variants of a particular time zone will produce the same output and can be used interchangeably.

Otherwise (when using dst=no), *T and *ST will produce the offset without DST adjustment, and *DT will produce the offset with DST adjustment.

DST is not observed in the AWT time zone.

ACT or ACST ACDT Australian Central Standard/Daylight Time UTC+09:30 UTC+10:30
AET or AEST AEDT Australian Eastern Standard/Daylight Time UTC+10:00 UTC+11:00
KST Korea Standard Time UTC+09:00 DST is not observed in these time zones. It is not necessary to set dst.
JST Japan Standard Time UTC+09:00
NZT or NZST NZDT New Zealand Standard/Daylight Time UTC+12:00 UTC+13:00 When dst is NOT set to "no", the NZT, NZST and NZDT variants of this time zone will produce the same output and can be used interchangeably.

Otherwise (when using dst=no), NZT and NZST will produce the offset without DST adjustment, and NZDT will produce the offset with DST adjustment.
