Ruby – Time in Millis

January 31, 2015

The scenario which i encountered is to convert the date from database and convert it to Time in Millis (Example – 1422720326688)

The reason is the third party API which we use forces us to give the time in mills since unix epoch.

Following is the code snippet which can be used. I love Ruby for the expressive nature.

time = “#{rowDistinct[2]}” #- Date from Database – 2014-12-26 10:35:22 format
dTime = DateTime.parse(time)
aTime = dTime.to_time

aTime.to_i # – This will give the result in 1422720326688 format

Happy Rubying 🙂
