Hello, I am trying to get a UTC Unix Timestamp via DateTime. I know that ToUniversalTime returns a table, but how can I convert this into a proper Unix Timestamp? (or if there is a better way using DateTime to get a timestamp in UTC).
Can I ask why you need the UTC timestamp specifically? There are other ways to represent a datetime
Also DateTimes have a property called UnixTimestamp which seems suspicious
I misunderstood DateTime after trying to convert from using os.time(). I had assumed there was some arbitrary way to obtain UTC timestamps much like how you would use
Of course, DateTime being the recommended and newer alternative, this process is much more streamlined. The more detailed answer is that the way I had tried to convert :ToUniversalTime() to a Unix Timestamp was not the correct path, instead, it’s simpler to just use
Can I ask what the difference between this method and just using os.time() is?
