Many applications need to deal with the local time in different zones of the world.

Each time zone has an abbreviated name but humans understand better a more readable name.

This class can return the names of timezone either in short and full form, so applications can display the full name form in a user friendly manner.

Read this article to learn more details about how this notable PHP package works.


 



The package PHP Timezone Names is one of the few PHP packages that was considered notable recently because it does something that is worth paying attention.

The basic purpose is: Get the timezone name in full or abbreviated

Here follows in more detail what it does:

This class can get the timezone name in full or abbreviated and its offset.

It takes as parameters a string with the name of a timezone and a flag indicating if it is being considered the daylight savings.

The class can retrieve a list of known timezone names from a JSON configuration file and returns the given timezone full name, the abbreviated name and offset from UTC.

Notable PHP packages can be often considered innovative. If this package is also innovative, it can be nominated to the PHP Innovation Award and the author may win prizes and recognition for sharing innovative packages.

If you also developed your own notable or innovative packages consider sharing them, so you can also earn more visibility for your package.
