or
datetimeformat('%H:%M / %d-%m-%Y')

now

# Current moment is: 2021-02-18 22:37:27 UTC

{{ now() }}

outputs: 2021-02-18 22:37:27

{{ now() | converttimezone('PST') }}

outputs: 2021-02-18 14:37:27

{{ now() | datetimeformat("%Y-%m-%d") }}

parsejson

'parsejson(JSON string)'

Parses a given JSON string as a JSON object. Most commonly used to parse a user attribute as a list.

User attribute ExampleList = ["ItemA","ItemB","ItemC"]

{{ parsejson(userAttribute['ExampleList]) | first }}

outputs 'ItemA'

range

range(start=0, stop, step=1)

Returns a list containing an arithmetic progression of integers. range(i, j) returns [i, i+1, i+2, ..., j-1]. When step is given, it specifies the increment (or decrement). For example, range(4) and range(0, 4, 1) both return [0, 1, 2, 3].

skipmessage

Skips sending the current message for the current user.
Use the function with the following syntax:

{{ skipmessage() }}

super

Only usable within blocks, will render the contents of the parent block by calling super.

truncate

truncate(length=255, end="...")

Truncates a given string to a specified length and appends the end string.

today

Returns a datetime object of the current date at 12 am in UTC. This function does not return the time at the moment of execution (use now() instead). Optional string parameter timezone. Acceptable formats are the ones supported by the java ZoneId class. Examples: CET, UTC+5, America/Los_Angeles

{{ today() }}

outputs: 2020-04-09T00:00Z

{{ today("CET") }}

outputs: 2020-04-09T00:00+02:00[CET]

{{ today()|datetimeformat("%y-%m-%d") }}

outputs: 20-04-09
