Until now, we’ve learned to work with date-time library classes. You know when you should use each class and how to use it. Now it’s time to work on the appearance and localization of your dates.

val date = "1902-07-22"
val localDate = LocalDate.parse(date, DateTimeFormatter.ISO_LOCAL_DATE)
println("LocalDate: $localDate")
val currentData1 = DateTimeFormatter.ISO_LOCAL_DATE.format(LocalDate.now())
println("currentData1: $currentData1")
val currentData2 = LocalDate.now().format(DateTimeFormatter.ISO_LOCAL_DATE)
println("currentData2: $currentData2")
val localizedDtf = DateTimeFormatter
    .ofLocalizedDate(FormatStyle.MEDIUM)
    .withLocale(Locale.FRANCE)
val localizedDtfFormatted = localizedDtf.format(LocalDate.now())
println("localizedDtfFormatted: $localizedDtfFormatted")
val customDtf = DateTimeFormatter.ofPattern("MMM/dd/yy hh:mm a")
val customFormattedDate = customDtf.format(LocalDateTime.now())
println("customFormattedDate: $customFormattedDate")
