FAQ about Abstract's
Website Screenshot API

What is the Time, Date, and Timezone API?

Abstract’s Time, Date, and Timezone API is a simple, powerful, and lightweight REST API that can identify the current time, timezone, and other details from a given location (via the /current_time API endpoint), or convert the time from one location to another at the current time or at some point in the past or future (via the /convert_time endpoint).

For example, using the /current_time endpoint, you could request the current time of "Los Angeles, CA" or of the longitude and latitude of -118.243683 / 34.052235 (also of Los Angeles) or a given IP address, and the IP would return the current time, timezone, and other details for that location.

Similarly, using the /convert_time endpoint, you should submit "Los Angeles, CA", a time in the past, present, or future, and "Paris, FR", and the API would return what the time will be in Paris, France when it is the specified time in Los Angeles, CA.

What are the common use cases of the Time, Date, and Timezone API?

We see a wide variety of uses cases for the Time, Date, and Timezone API across many industries and countries around the world. Any time you are interacting with a user in a different location than yours, it's best to understand what time of day it is there and interact with them appropriately as a result of that. Similarly, you may want that information of the time in your location reflected back to your users. For example, say you provide chat or email support to users around the world. If someone in Tokyo attempts to contact your support team in London via chat, the support team may not be available. However, by using Abstract's Time, Date, and Timezone API, and specifically with /convert_time endpoint, you could tell the user in Tokyo exactly when the support team will be available. There are many powerful use cases for this API, including by combining it with our popular Public Holiday API to understand when public holidays are in a given location. If you have a unique use case for the API that you would like to share with us, just let us know!

Is Daylight Savings Time (DST) taken into account with this API?

Yes, the API includes detailed information on Daylight Savings Time, including whether it applies to a given timezone and whether it applies at given time to the request timezone.

What timezones does the API support?

While the API documentation will provide the most up to date list of supported timezones, the list of supported timezones as of June 2020 includes: Australian Central Daylight Saving Time (ACDT),
