Templating the Date field

The Date field allows content writers to add a date that represents a calendar day.

Get the date value

Date value is a string formatted as YYYY-MM-DD (example: 2020-02-19).

Here is an example that retrieves the value of a Date field with the API ID of date.

<time>{{ $document->data->date }}</time>
// Outputs: 2020-02-19

Format the Date

You can also customize the output of the Date field.

    use Prismic\Dom\Date;
    $date = Date::asDate($document->data->date);

<time>{{ $date->format('l M jS, Y') }}</time>
// Outputs: Sunday Feb 19th, 2020
