build status

Node.js client library for accessing Google Time Zone API. It provides time offset data for locations on the surface of the earth. Requesting the time zone information for a specific Latitude/Longitude pair will return the name of that time zone, the time offset from UTC, and the Daylight Savings offset.

Installation

$ npm install timezoner

Usage

    var timezoner = require('timezoner');
    /* Request timezone with location coordinates */
    timezoner.getTimeZone(
        39.6034810, // Latitude coordinate
        -119.6822510, // Longitude coordinate
        function (err, data) {
            if (err) {
                console.log(err);
            } else {
                console.log(data);
            }
        }
    );
Response data:
{
   "dstOffset" : 0.0,
   "rawOffset" : -28800.0,
   "status" : "OK",
   "timeZoneId" : "America/Los_Angeles",
   "timeZoneName" : "Pacific Standard Time"
}

You can pass in an optional options as a last argument, it can be useful for override sensor of Google Timezone API. The sensor defaults to false.

    timezoner.getTimeZone(
        39.6034810,
        -119.6822510,
        function (err, data) {
            if (err) {
                console.log(err);
            } else {
                console.log(data);
            }
        },
        { sensor: true }
    );

The sensor specifies whether the application requesting data is using a sensor (such as a GPS device) to determine the user's location. It accepts true or false.
