Cross-platform access to the user's timezone including defaults per country code.

Time Zone Jovo Plugin

NPM

Node CI

Overview

This plugin for the Jovo Framework allows you to easily add cross-platform time zone support including an overall default time zone if there is not a country-code-specific default.

Platforms

The following platforms are supported:

  • Amazon Alexa
  • Google Assistant
  • Samsung Bixby

In the case of Amazon Alexa, after the first API call, the time zone is cached in Session Data at:

this.jovo.$session.$data.$timeZone

Don't access or change this value, instead use the method on the plugin:

NOTE: Support for Google Assistant is through default time zone only as the current User Experience (UX) of prompting for location and calling APIs to convert geo-location into a time zone needs improvement.

npm install jovo-community-plugin-timezone --save
