Php – Convert date and time to Jalali in Laravel

laravellaravel-4laravel-5php

I want to change the time and date calendar to Jalali (Shamsi calendar used in Iran)
in my system.
How can I do this?

	"language_title" => "English",
	"dir" => "ltr", // ltr = left to right, rtl = right to left
	"language_code" => "en",
	"intl_locale" => "en_US",
	"dec_point" => ".",
	"thousands_sep" => ",",
	"dateformat_full" => "D, M j Y  g:i A", // http://php.net/manual/en/function.date.php
	"dateformat_date_long" => "D, M j Y", // http://php.net/manual/en/function.date.php
	"intl_dateformat_full" => "E, d MMM yy  h:m a", // http://userguide.icu-project.org/formatparse/datetime
	"intl_dateformat_date_long" => "E, d MMMM yyyy", // http://userguide.icu-project.org/formatparse/datetime

Best Solution

Many years ago, I made a third party calendar helper to convert a Gregorian date to Jalali. I use it inside a Laravel service. The main methods are jNow and jdate

<?php

namespace Infrastructure\Services\Calendar;

class CalendarHelper
{

    public function jDisplay($timestamp)
    {
        list($hour, $minute, $second) = explode( ':', date( 'H:i:s', time() ) );
        $today = time() - ( $hour*3600+$minute*60+$second );
        if ( $timestamp > $today ) return 'امروز';
        elseif ( $timestamp > $today-86400 ) return 'دیروز';
        else return $this->jdate( $timestamp, false, true );
    }

    public function yearList($end=1970)
    {
        $year = (int)date('Y', time());
        return $this->_yearList($year, $end);
    }

    private function _yearList($year, $end)
    {
        if ( $year < $end ) return array();

        $years[] = $year;
        while ( $year > $end ) {
            $year--;
            $years[] = $year;
        }
        return $years;
    }

    public function jYearList($end=1340)
    {
        $list = explode(' ', $this->jdate( date('Y-m-d-D H:i:s', time()), true, false ) );
        $year = (int)$list[3];
        return $this->_yearList($year, $end);
    }

    public function jNow()
    {
        $list = explode(' ', $this->jdate( date('Y-m-d-D H:i:s', time()), true, false ) );
        return array(
            'year' => $list[3],
            'month' => $list[2],
            'day' => $list[1],
            'dayofweek' => $list[0],
            'time' => $list[4]
        );
    }

    public function gTime($date, $hour, $minute)
    {
        list($j_y,$j_m,$j_d) = explode('/', $date);
        list($g_y, $g_m, $g_d) = $this->jalali_to_gregorian($j_y,$j_m,$j_d);
        $hour = str_pad( $hour, 2, '0', STR_PAD_LEFT );
        $minute = str_pad( $minute, 2, '0', STR_PAD_LEFT );
        $time_str = $g_y.'-'.$g_m.'-'.$g_d.' '.$hour.':'.$minute.':00';
        $time = strtotime($time_str);
        $time -= 12600;
        return $time;
    }

    public function jdate($datetime, $hastime=false, $localize=true)
    {
