The date display format for the United States and Europe are a bit different. TextExpander makes it super easy to display the right format when I need it. I just need to remember the correct abbreviation to use, and outputs the correct format that I need:
I have the following snippet setup:
|today||%B %e, %Y||November 11, 2015|
In addition, I may want to reference noon time on Thursdays for the weekly team meetings. I always want to always reference the next available occurrence of the meeting. So on Monday, I want to reference this week's meeting and on Friday I'll want to see the date of the next meeting. I have this PHP Shell script set up:
$everytime = date('F j, Y',strtotime('next Thursday'));
There’s a lot of possibilities here. Hopefully this helps with some ideas with TextExpander. (For example, not everyone knows that you can use PHP in the Shell Script panel!)
