1``format_date``
2===============
3
4.. versionadded:: 2.12
5
6    The ``format_date`` filter was added in Twig 2.12.
7
8The ``format_date`` filter formats a date. It behaves in the exact same way as
9the :doc:`format_datetime<format_datetime>` filter, but without the time.
10
11.. note::
12
13    The ``format_date`` filter is part of the ``IntlExtension`` which is not
14    installed by default. Install it first:
15
16    .. code-block:: bash
17
18        $ composer require twig/intl-extra
19
20    Then, on Symfony projects, install the ``twig/extra-bundle``:
21
22    .. code-block:: bash
23
24        $ composer require twig/extra-bundle
25
26    Otherwise, add the extension explicitly on the Twig environment::
27
28        use Twig\Extra\Intl\IntlExtension;
29
30        $twig = new \Twig\Environment(...);
31        $twig->addExtension(new IntlExtension());
