SQLite - Convert Unix Time (Epoch or POSIX Time) to DateTime
October 11, 2018 2:29 AM
Working on "Rename My TV Series" I ran into a small issue; the TVDB API (v2) gave back a Unix Epoch formatted DateTime (also known as Unix Time or POSIX time), yet I wanted to store a DateTime in my SQLite database.
Finally found the trick:
datetime(UnixTime, 'unixepoch', 'localtime')
Here "UnixTime" is the actual Unix time number (Int64), so in a full query it would look like this:
INSERT INTO "tvshows" ("tvdbid","lastupdated") VALUES ("123", datetime(1531412877, 'unixepoch', 'localtime') );
Hope it's useful for someone
