Here’s a link to my just completed Local Weather App:

Your feedback is welcome


Looks nice, but the date is way off…


Date seems ok to me.

Looks like someone didn’t account for some countries displaying month first in shorthand data format :wink:


Thanks,I’ll see to it now.


how do you think I should handle or detect date format in other countries


I generally agree that you shouldn’t parse the date and time yourself (relevant video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5wpm-gesOY).

I would use external library like Moment JS:

You should add https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/moment.js/2.15.1/moment.min.js to your external JS libraries (same place where you added jQuery library), and replace
day = processDate(day);
day = moment().format("dddd, MMMM Do YYYY, h:mm:ss a");
(you can see how to format date/time here).

All date/time parsing code will be replaced with one line :wink:


Thanks a lot, jenovs. That was really helpful.
