Configure and Display a Schedule of Opening Hours in PHP image

Opening Hours is a PHP package by Spatie to query and format a set of business operating hours. You can use it to present the times per day and include exceptions for things like holidays and other days off on a given year-specific date or recurring (happening each year). The project's readme file has this example to illustrate how you can configure hours:

$openingHours = OpeningHours::create([
'monday' => ['09:00-12:00', '13:00-18:00'],
'tuesday' => ['09:00-12:00', '13:00-18:00'],
'wednesday' => ['09:00-12:00'],
'thursday' => ['09:00-12:00', '13:00-18:00'],
'friday' => ['09:00-12:00', '13:00-20:00'],
'saturday' => ['09:00-12:00', '13:00-16:00'],
'sunday' => [],
'exceptions' => [
'2016-11-11' => ['09:00-12:00'],
'2016-12-25' => [],
'01-01' => [], // Recurring on each 1st of January
'12-25' => ['09:00-12:00'], // Recurring on each 25th of December
],
]);
 
// This will allow you to display things like:
 
$now = new DateTime('now');
$range = $openingHours->currentOpenRange($now);
 
if ($range) {
echo "It's open since ".$range->start()."\n";
echo "It will close at ".$range->end()."\n";
} else {
echo "It's closed since ".$openingHours->previousClose($now)->format('l H:i')."\n";
echo "It will re-open at ".$openingHours->nextOpen($now)->format('l H:i')."\n";
}

This package has tons of configuration options and can be used on any PHP project without any dependencies. While this package isn't a brand-new Spatie package, we've never covered it and think you should check it out! You can get setup instructions and see more API examples on at Spatie Opening Hours.

If you'd like to learn more background information on why this package as created, Freek Van der Herten originally wrote about it on his blog.
