Feature #13822


Added by opti (Andreas Opti) almost 2 years ago. Updated 5 months ago.

Target version:


output [time1,time2] of daysaving-changes of given year

I assume the result does not depend on timezone,
only the output will be in default timezone.

What are time1 and time2?
If time1 is the time when DST starts at and time2 is the time when it ends at, then time1 >time2` in the Southern Hemisphere?
And what will return in non-DST timezones?

Usually Ruby itself doesn't have such information by itself.
It just calls localtime(3).

If you want to have information related timezone database, you should use tzinfo.gem.

  • Backport set to 2.4: UNKNOWN, 2.5: UNKNOWN
  • ruby -v set to ruby 2.4.3p205 (2017-12-14 revision 61247) [x86_64-linux]
  • Subject changed from Time.dst_changes( to Time.dst?
  • Tracker changed from Feature to Bug

Is it bug or feature?
Receiving same result for Time.dst? method.
I belive it suppose to base it response on date in variable, correct me if i'm wrong.
Receiving it in Rails 5.1.2, but Time class is in ruby core

gems tzinfo, tzinfo-data are in Gemfile

Time zone configured in rails config:
2.4.3 :001 >
=> #>

2.4.3 :013 > t
=> 2018-12-12 10:00:00 -0500
2.4.3 :014 > a
=> 2018-08-01 10:00:00 -0500
2.4.3 :015 > t.dst?
=> false
2.4.3 :016 > a.dst?
=> false
2.4.3 :017 > t.isdst
=> false
2.4.3 :018 > a.isdst
=> false
