I am trying to write a simple calendar app and having troubles with time zones. For as many nice Date and Time helpers, action view and active record sure dont play nice with time zones.
I have an appointment model with the appointment_time attribute which is a datetime. My current issue is editing appointment_time with datetime_select within a form tag.
appointment_time.in_time_zone(time_zone) #this is the appointment owners time zone
This gives a select with the current date and time in UTC, not the appointment date and time. appt_time does get called and returns the correct date and time adjusted for the time zone.
The docs mention nothing about time zones, what is the best way to accomplish this?
