Timezone Picker

A meteor.js package that allows you to detect client-side timezones and gives you an interface for changing those timezones from user inputs.

Getting started


Just run

meteor add quave:blaze-timezone-picker

Add the timezone picker calls

Now we just have to add a startup block on the client to detect timezones:

// set the user's timezone
Deps.autorun(function() {
  if (!Meteor.user().profile.timezone) {
    Meteor.users.update(Meteor.userId(), {$set: {
      'profile.timezone': TimezonePicker.detectedZone()

Then we can add a quick form field to a profile settings form:

{{> timezonePicker class="form-group" selected=timezone}}

This will inject a select element with all the available moment-timezone timezones as options. If the user's profile is the context for this template, it should pick up the timezone string we set on loading the page.
