Golang : How to get hour, minute, second from time?



Tags : golang hour minute second timestamp

Problem : You have unix timestamp or time stamp in string format. You want to convert the unix timestamps from string to time.Time type and get the hour, minute and second. How to do that? Solutions : Use time.Unix(), time.Parse() and time.Time.Clock() functions. Example 1 - convert Unix time : package main import ( "fmt" "os" "strconv" "time" ) func main() { unixTimeStamp := "1432572732" unixIntValue, err := strconv.ParseInt(unixTimeStamp, 10, 64) if err != nil { fmt.Println(err) os.Exit(1) timeStamp := time.Unix(unixIntValue, 0) //fmt.Println(timeStamp) hr, min, sec := timeStamp.Clock() fmt.Printf("Clock : [%d]hour : [%d]minutes : [%d] seconds \n", hr, min, sec) Example 2 - convert time from string to time.Time : package main import ( "fmt" "os" "time" ) func main() { // convert time string to time.Time type timeStampString := "Dec 29, 2014 at 7:54pm (SGT)" layOut := "Jan 2, 2006 at 3:04pm (MST)" timeStamp, err := time.Parse(layOut, timeStampString) if err != nil { fmt.Println(err) os.Exit(1) hr, min, sec := timeStamp.Clock() fmt.Printf("Clock : [%d]hour : [%d]minutes : [%d] seconds \n", hr, min, sec)
