I am running node red from hassio. I have a sensor in hassio that gives time of some events as payload in the format 2019-06-03T20:38:00. I want to use this sensor for automation but because of this format its not happening. i tried to use node-red-contrib-simpletime, but it gives wrong time. i would like to get advice to execute this. i,e Using the sensor payload which is a time format for calling a service from hassio at that time from the format.
Have you tried node-red-contrib-moment? It is highly configurable.
Use the JS Date function & you can do what ever you need to...
var myDate = new Date("2019-06-03T20:38:00") var y = myDate.getFullYear(); //2019 var h = myDate.getHours();//20
You need to post more info. What doesn't work? Screen shots? Debug output? Exact format of data you require etc etc.
Actually it worked, my earlier post was approved late by node red forum..thats why i said it didnt. thanks..now i am able to extract time in the format HH:mm from the input payoad.. But the second part is still confusing. i now have the time extracted, thanks to you all and at this time I have to call a service...mostly like an alarm...that can be set n the flow and not by conventional method of nodered editor..any ideas..?
