I need to set a
picker's default value to the current local time. Native JS seems to output in local time by default:
new Date($.now()); // "Sat Nov 12 2016 22:36:52 GMT+1100 (AEDT)"
However functions like
output in UTC, and although I can pull out individual components locally, I don't really want to fiddle around with padding and such. So I try this using moment.js:
moment().local().format(); // "2016-11-12T22:34:05+11:00"
Cool! Now I just need to adjust the format to a tiny bit:
moment().local().format('YYYY-MM-DThh:mm'); // "2016-11-12T10:39"
Waaaaaaait. Now it's in UTC again, even though I specified local.
In this particular case I could use string manipulation to just drop the end off for the date-time picker, but surely I'm going to reach a point where I want to output the local time in an arbitrary format. Am I missing something here?
