I already referred Magento 2 Get Current Store Date Time

But how to use directly in .phtml file? Can able to get Date, DateTime & Also able to set it's format?

  • Use directly means ? you can use your template related block and render into a template (.phtml) – Krishna ijjada Sep 27 '16 at 6:41
  • @krishnaijjadaati95Dev i would not like to pass values via Block/Controller – Ankit Shah Sep 27 '16 at 6:47

You can use this in phtml file :

$objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
$objDate = $objectManager->create('Magento\Framework\Stdlib\DateTime\DateTime');
$date = $objDate->gmtDate();

But using directly object manager in phtml file is not a good practice.

  • You can change the date format using php date function like : date('y-m-d', strtotime($date)). or any date format as you like – Ashish Jagnani Sep 27 '16 at 7:14

    Can do with $block->formatDate($_posts->getCreatedAt()); got it. No worries Thanks :) – Ankit Shah Sep 27 '16 at 7:18
protected $_date;
 public function __construct(\Magento\Framework\Stdlib\DateTime\TimezoneInterface $date)
  $this->_date =  $date;

then use like this

$this->_date->date()->format('Y-m-d H:i:s');
