Humane dates in RavenDB


Originally posted at 4/4/2011

One of the advantages of RavenDB is that the documents format is highly human readable. Except for one thing. Can you tell me what date is represented by this value:

/Date(1224043200000+0300)/

I thought not :-)

We have recently moved toward this format instead:

2011-04-04T11:28:46.0404749+03:00

Which it both machine and human readable.

This make figuring out what something is so much easier.

Nice! How do you configure this when using JSON.NET?

@Erik - Theres a parameter to pass in when you serialize. IsoDateTimeConverter

I believe that is what he's using.

string isoJson = JsonConvert.SerializeObject(entry, new IsoDateTimeConverter());
