[QUOTE=labithiotis] Can you add the ability to format unix timestamp to a formatted time like HH:MM, tried adding it myself but it didn't work.

[code]
// create a new javascript Date object based on the timestamp
// multiplied by 1000 so that the argument is in milliseconds, not seconds
var date = new Date(unix_timestamp*1000);
// hours part from the timestamp
var hours = date.getHours();
// minutes part from the timestamp
var minutes = date.getMinutes();
// seconds part from the timestamp
var seconds = date.getSeconds();

// will display time in 10:30:23 format
var formattedTime = hours + ':' + minutes + ':' + seconds;
[/code][/QUOTE]

It's already inside the plugin.

Check those 2 functions:
Date2UnixTimestamp
UnixtTimestamp

[QUOTE=Labithiotis]
Format unix timestamp to a formatted time like HH:MM
[/QUOTE]

Those function produces a unix time stamp, not what I was asking for. (i.e. 1363058603023)

I want some expressions to take that number (AN UNIXTIMESTAMP / 1363058603023 ) and convert it to HH:MM or indervidually to Hours, Mins, and seconds so I can display that stamp as a time in UI.

1363058603023 --> 14:23 / 2:23pm

Oh, Data.Hours & Minutes can actually take an argument for time, it doesn't show that when I use the expression so I just assumed it used current time only.

Thanks

This plugin is phenomenal. So simple, yet it adds SO much to construct. You, sir, are a gentleman and a scholar.

Feature Requests:

- Add Week as time unit
- Add "Get current month NAME, ...."
- Add ability to add days, weeks, months, years to today's date.

I realize that it is possible to convert to milliseconds and then back to do the date calculations and to assign variables for the month names [and I'm doing this now :) ], but it would be easier on the user if these were already baked in.

And Thank You for this Great plugin, should be added to core functions!
