How do I get the current date / time in DD / MM / YYYY format HH: MM?


How can I get the current date and time in DD/MM/YYYY HH:MM format and also increment the month?

The formatting can be done like this (I assumed you meant HH:MM instead of HH:SS, but it's easy to change):"%d/%m/%Y %H:%M")
#=> "14/09/2011 14:09"

Updated for the shifting:

d =
d.strftime("%d/%m/%Y %H:%M")
#=> "11/06/2017 18:11"
d.next_month.strftime("%d/%m/%Y %H:%M")
#=> "11/07/2017 18:11"

You need to require 'date' for this btw.
