how do I format a ruby date as the following?
It looks like the format is 3 characters of month followed by 2 characters of day with a period and a year.
d = Date.parse('14 September 2016')
to get your date object.
d.strftime('%b%d.%Y') #=> Sep14.2016
This will format your date like you wanted. Keep in mind
d is not modified, so it is still a Date object. You need to assign the result of the
strftime method to any variable.
You can use the
downcase method to remove any capitalization.
