Golang : Get current, epoch time and display by year, month and day



Tags : golang get-current-time now epoch-time unix-time

Problem :

You need to get current and Epoch(Unix) time and display the time by year, month and day.

Solution :

Use the http://golang.org/pkg/time functions to get current and epoch time. There are methods to break the time down to year, month, day, hour and minutes as well.

For example :

 package main

 import (
 "fmt"
 "time"
 )

 func main() {

 now := time.Now()
 epoch := now.Unix()

 fmt.Println("Now: ", now)
 fmt.Println("Epoch(Unix) Time: ", epoch)

 fmt.Println(now.Format("Mon, Jan 2, 2006 at 3:04pm"))

 fmt.Println("Day: ", now.Day())
 fmt.Println("Month: ", now.Month())
 fmt.Println("Year: ", now.Year())

 fmt.Println("Hour: ", now.Hour())
 fmt.Println("Minute: ", now.Minute())

 }

http://golang.org/pkg/time
