Plugin request: SystemTime (current date time Today Now)

Post by *Stefan2 »

 
Can somebody please create a plugin to provide the current date and time of the operation system? :thumbsup:

Proposed name perhaps smtg like: SystemTime (or even SystemInfo)


Provided information:

- Current date (format from the settings of this pc) <<< THIS is most need, like for today: 22. 01. 2019 (German: dd. mm. yyyy)

- Current Time (format from the settings of this pc) <<< THIS is most need, like for right now: 11:01




Maybe also

- Current date +/- x day
- Current Time +/- x minutes
- Current:
-- YY
-- YYYY
-- MM
-- DD
-- hh
-- mm
-- ss
-- pm / am

- (maybe more info about running system: Hostname, OS, Bit, Manufacturer, region info,..)





Purpose:
use for
- search files created on Current today date: 00:00-23:59
- color file by a definition via search
- multi rename tool: add current time stamp to file name




TIA :D      (or is such not possible with TCs plugin system?)

Thank you, Ovg, I am thinking I really could, but I am also thinking 'we' need
something more easier, easier to handle for every user without much long guidance.

I tested that: https://ghisler.ch/board/viewtopic.php?p=350925#p350925 (german thread)
Unfortunately the query for "today" with this plugin works only conditionally, because 1 day is considered from the time of the query(!)

I have updated my sample content plugin "filesys" to support the fields "Today" and "Yesterday". You can find it here:
http://ghisler.fileburst.com/content/wdx_filesys.zip

The fields check for the current date only (in local time), and ignore the current time.

Thank you very much!


The WDX content plugin "filesys" (filesys sample plugin v2.5 from 31.Jan.2019)
(see >> https://www.ghisler.com/plugins.htm#content >>> Content plugins >>> at the "Content-Plugin Guide"-box >>> "A very small sample plugin with source")
How-to install a plugin
Show
You can just install by double click:
- since years, newer plugins come with a "pluginst.inf" file in the archive.
- so download the wanted plugin, and in TC, go to the download folder,
- double click the downloaded archive, you are asked to install.
new fields "Today" and "Yesterday" give back a boolean "Yes" or "No" for current DATE (NOT the date in numbers, as an string, itself)

which works fine for Search and so for "Color by filetype" too.

How-to: Define colors by file type
Show
--------------------------------
- Menu: Configuration > Options > Color
- Define colors by file type...
- [Add...]
- [Define]
- In "Define selection" (the re-used "search"-window)
--- open [Plugins] page and configure
--- ---- Plugin: filesys | Property: Today | OP: = | Value: Yes
- [Save] as e.g. "search_Today"
- back in "Specify file type" click [OK]
- choose Color, [OK]
- back in "Define colors by..." click [OK] (maybe drag and drop the definition to the right order)
- back in "Configuration" click [OK]


-----
To delete such rule, select it and press [Delete]

This doesn't work for MRT:

[N1-8] [=filesys.Heute] [=filesys.Gestern]
12345678 Ja Nein.ext

For MRT, to add the current date&time, we can still use
[N1-8] [T3] [YMD] - [hms]

I almost couldn't find the plugin as it is named "Content-Plugin Guide".
An explanationary add of "filesys" in the text might be helpful!

Thanks, I edited my post to point that out.
