I have an array of timeline which I want to divide in groups per date (dd/MM/YYYY). I was trying make my own "groupBy" without any library (which I really prefer), but I got no success. So I decided to search for a library that does it and I found this: angular-filter, so now I'm trying to use it.
The problem is that I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong, I followed this example and created my JS Bin to ilustrate my situation. It always says the format date is wrong, why?
By the way, the expected result is:
Filters in Angular are called many times, not just once. So during the first digest, your
created_at values are converted to
D/M/Y format. Then, when during the next digest Angular call your filters again, it tries to create a date with already converted value (i.e.
new Date('18/06/2016')). So you get an Invalid date as a result.
The solution is to convert the dates once in the controller before assigning them to the view and omit the
map: ... filter.
See the updated jsbin.
