Tabulify uses Yaml as the file format of
- and pipeline.
Tabulify introduces one variation of the YAML specification in the manipulation of Timestamp.
In the Yaml specification, a timestamp without timezone is interpreted as having the UTC timezone. Tabulify changes this behavior and delete the time zone information.
Why ? Because if you are specifying the timestamp 2020-10-01 01:00:00 in YAML and that you are in the UTC+2 timezone (Amsterdam), you will see the time 2020-10-01 02:00:00 and that's too much trouble to understand why.
- timestamp without timezone
timestamp: 2020-10-01 01:00:00
- timestamp with the timezone UTC+2 time (Amsterdam)
timestamp: 2020-10-01 01:00:00 +2
More on the timestamp in Yaml format can be found on this page.
