No more complex calculations or cryptic code, just simple Carbon magic.

Now, let's explore some straightforward examples with code:

Example 1:

Explore a simple example with custom date and time:

<?php
     
namespace App\Http\Controllers;
    
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Carbon\Carbon;
    
class UserController extends Controller
{
    /**
     * Display a listing of the resource.
     *
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
     */
    public function index(Request $request)
    {
        $time = Carbon::parse('2024-01-02 21:20:48')
                        ->setTimezone('Asia/Kolkata')
                        ->toDateTimeString();
                          
        dd($time);
    }
}

Output:

2024-01-03 02:50:48

 Example 2:

Explore a simple example with now date and time:

<?php
     
namespace App\Http\Controllers;
    
use Illuminate\Http\Request;

{
    /**
     * Display a listing of the resource.
     *
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
     */
    public function index(Request $request)
    {
        $time = Carbon::now()
                    ->setTimezone('Asia/Kolkata')
                    ->toDateTimeString();
  
        dd($time);
    }
