Timestamp Variation

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: 2020-10-01 01:00:00 +2
