Today’s demo is something I started working on Sunday “for fun”, but when it turned into an unholy mess (see Recording and saving audio in Cordova applications), it took me a bit longer to wrap than I expected. The idea was simple. “Sound Boards” are apps…

Hey Matt, thanks for getting back to me. I made the mistake of posting this right before I headed out for dinner. Here is a thread where I described my issue and what the resolution was: https://forums.plex.tv/discussion/comment/982330

“Handling the Sauce view” – how immature would I sound if I said that title made me laugh? Today’s post isn’t terribly exciting. I’m basically going to cover how I got one more screen in my app working. But I’m ok with this being kind of boring. As I…

Almost a year ago I blogged about using the EventBrite API with ColdFusion. At that time, I was under the impression that all uses of the EventBrite API required a private OAuth token. This means it would not be possible to use the data on the…

I’ve said on more than one occasion that it was gaming that initially got me into programming. Initially just cheating at games (I hacked my Bard’s Tale save and I modified the source code in Lemonade Stand), but what I really wanted to do was create my…

Ah, looking at that title there you probably think, “Surely this is a simple matter in Cordova and surely this is Raymond, once again, blogging something is incredibly obvious and simple just to drive people to his Amazon Wishlist.” Yep, that’s what I…

Earlier this week I was working with a desktop app (which I can’t talk about… yet) that had an Ionic-look to it. On a whim, I opened up the package contents and discovered it was an Electron app. If you’ve never heard of it, Electron is an open source…

Ok, folks, help me out here. I've got a date object that looks like so:


start: Object
local: "2015-08-01T19:00:00"
timezone: "America/New_York"
utc: "2015-08-01T23:00:00Z"

I want to print the date in a nice format. But if I make a JavaScript date object out of it, and do getHours(), it shows the 6PM for me since I'm CST. I need it to stay at 7PM.

I've tried various different things, but nothing seem to work to get the hours/etc in the original TZ.

Any ideas?

I remember writing a countdown timer to count down to the start of cf.Objective() 2009 where I ran into a similar challenge (wanting the countdown to be accurate for the user's timezone).  I got close using getTimezoneOffset(), but of course daylight saving time becomes a factor.
