SwiftUI Integration

Never write Text("\()") again. Just pass in the right FormatStyle

The Text view in SwiftUI has a custom initializer that accepts any FormatStyle.

struct ContentView: View {
    static let twosdayDateComponents = DateComponents(
        year: 2022,
        month: 2,
        day: 22,
        hour: 2,
        minute: 22,
        second: 22,
        nanosecond: 22

    var twosday: Date {
        Calendar(identifier: .gregorian).date(from: ContentView.twosdayDateComponents)!

    var body: some View {
        VStack {
            Text(twosday, format: Date.FormatStyle(date: .complete, time: .complete))
            Text(twosday, format: .dateTime.hour())
            Text(twosday, format: .dateTime.year().month().day())

Will show:
