Issue #402

I want to test if a date has passed another date

let base =  Date(timeIntervalSince1970: 1567756697)
XCTAssertEqual(validator.hasPassed(event: event, date: base), true)

My hasPassed is using Calendar.current

func minuteSinceMidnight(date: Date) -> MinuteSinceMidnight {
    let calendar = Calendar.current
    let start = calendar.startOfDay(for: date)
    return Int(date.timeIntervalSince(start)) / 60

But the minute is always having timezone applied. Even if I try with DateComponents

func minuteSinceMidnight(date: Date) -> MinuteSinceMidnight {
    let components = calendar.dateComponents([.hour, .minute], from: date)
    guard let hour = components.hour, let minute = components.minute else {
        return 0

    return hour * 60 + minute

As long as I use Calendar, it always has timezone applied.

Checking this time interval 1567756697 on

Assuming that this timestamp is in seconds: GMT: Friday, September 6, 2019 7:58:17 PM Your time zone: Friday, September 6, 2019 9:58:17 PM GMT+02:00 DST

Because I have GMT+2, there will always be 2 hours offset. This works in app, but not in test because of the way I construct Date with time interval.

One way is to have test data using string construction, and provide timezone to DateFormatter

let formatter = ISO8601DateFormatter()
let date = "2019-07-58T12:39:00Z")
let string = formatter.string(from: Date())

Another way is to have a fixed timezone for Calendar

var calendar = Calendar.current
calendar.timeZone = TimeZone(secondsFromGMT: 0)!

Another way is to adjust existing date 20, minute: 02, second: 00, of: Date()
