I love the queries to search your inbox, but would be awesome if the date format could be more resillient (intelligent).
I would love to have a string evaluation function that supports a lot of date formats, for example:
- "20 aug 2020" => detect as 2020-08-20 - "July 2020" => detect as 2020-07-01 (when in the before query) - "July 2020" => detect as 2020-07-31 (when in the after query) - "2020" => detect as 2020-12-31 (when in the after query) - "2020" => detect as 2020-01-01 (when in the before query) - "2020/08/01" => detect as 2020-08-01 (already working) - "12.8.2020" => detect as 2020-08-01
These are just suggestions. I think the community should discuss and add all different kinds of date formats that should be supported, then we could define tests and write a function that satisfy all the specified formats.
I would love to help with that. Let me know if this would be something that the community would like to see and I can provide a sample code.
