Template:Daylight saving active/doc

From Safer nicotine wiki

Lua error in package.lua at line 80: module 'strict' not found. This template returns either 0 or 1 to indicate if daylight saving time (DST) is active in the given time zone region:

 0  DST is not active
 1  DST is active

See below for the currently supported time zones. Note that if DST is only partially observed in a certain time zone, this template returns 1 if DST is active in that part (even though it is not observed/active in the other part).

During DST, the clock is set one hour ahead of standard time.

Usage

{{Daylight saving in time zone | time zone abbreviation | date/time value}}

Template parameters

This template prefers inline formatting of parameters.

ParameterDescriptionTypeStatus
time zone abbreviation1

Abbreviation of the time zone for which it is determined if DST is active. If no time zone is given or if the given time zone is not supported, then the output will default to 0.

Example
CET
Stringsuggested
date/time value2

Date and time for which it is determined if DST would be active in the given time zone. By default, if no value is given, it is determined if DST is active at the current time.

Example
6 April 2018 23:00 CET
Dateoptional

Supported time zones

From the list of time zone abbreviations, the following time zones are currently supported:

SDT - Abbreviations - DST Name SDT - Offset - DST Notes
HST Hawaii Standard Time UTC−10:00 The *T, *ST and *DT variants of a particular time zone are considered the same region and will produce the same output, thus they can be used interchangeably.

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

UTC+00:00 UTC+01:00 Both the GMT and BST variants of this time zone are considered the same region and will produce the same output, thus they can be used interchangeably.

This time zone is essentially the same as WET/WEST, see below for more details.

WET WEST Western European (Summer) Time UTC+00:00 UTC+01:00 Both the *ET and *EST variants of a particular time zone are considered the same region and will produce the same output, thus they can be used interchangeably.

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 The *T, *ST and *DT variants of a particular time zone are considered the same region and will produce the same output, thus they can be used interchangeably.

DST is not observed in the AWT time zone.

JST Japan Standard Time UTC+09:00
NZT or NZST NZDT New Zealand Standard/Daylight Time UTC+12:00 UTC+13:00 The NZT, NZST and NZDT variants of this time zone are considered the same region and will produce the same output, thus they can be used interchangeably.
