ReQL command: ISO8601

Command syntax

r.ISO8601(string[, {defaultTimezone:''}]) → time


Create a time object based on an ISO 8601 date-time string (e.g. ‘2013-01-01T01:01:01+00:00’). RethinkDB supports all valid ISO 8601 formats except for week dates. Read more about the ISO 8601 format at Wikipedia.

If you pass an ISO 8601 string without a time zone, you must specify the time zone with the defaultTimezone argument.

Example: Update the time of John’s birth.

r.table("user").get("John").update({birth: r.ISO8601('1986-11-03T08:30:00-07:00')}).run(conn, callback)
