Introduction

DateOfEaster is an extension for the Date class, used for calcutation of Easter date, both western (used by Roman Catholic Church and many protestant and evangelical churches) and eastern (used by most of Eastern Orthodox Churches and Ancient Churches of the East).

You can also find eastern and western Pentecost plus Corpus Christi and Ash Wednesday dates with DateOfEaster.

A bit of history

Sometimes I need to find a certain Christian festive day’s date. A long ago I created a Ruby gem for this: when_easter. Now I thought to create something like this in Swift.

Installation

SPM

DateOfEaster is Swift Package Manager compatible. Add following to your Package.swift:

import PackageDescription

let package = Package(
    [...]
    dependencies: [
        .Package(url: "https://github.com/Loyolny/DateOfEaster.git", majorVersion: versionNumber)
    ]
)

Framework

You can also build DateOfEaster as a framework for iOS, macOS, tvOS or watchOS. After building it, drag the created .framework file into your Xcode project.

Manual

Just drag DateOfEaster.swift file into your project

Usage

Find a western Easter date:

import DateOfEaster

let westernEaster2015 = Date.westernEasterDate(year: 2015)

Find an eastern Easter date:

import DateOfEaster

let easter1983 = Date.easternEasterDate(year: 1983)

Find Pentecost dates:

import DateOfEaster

let lastYearsEasternPentecost = Date.easternPentecostDate(year: 2016)

Find Corpus Christi date for this year:

let year = Calendar.current.dateComponents([.year], from: Date()).year

let thisYearsCorpusChristi = Date.corpusChristiDate(year: year)

Find Ash Wednesday date for this year:

let year = Calendar.current.dateComponents([.year], from: Date()).year

let thisYearsCorpusChristi = Date.ashWednesdayDate(year: year)

Caveats

Date.easternEasterDate and Date.westernEasterDate return Date optional. Both eastern and western date calcutation are subject to certain limitations:

  • Western date has to be year 1583 or later. There was no Gregorian calendar before.
  • Eastern date has to be between year 1900 and 2199 due to changing time distance between Gergorian and Julian calendars.

Otherwise both functions will return nil.
