How to get the IANA/Olsen time zones for a country in Node.JS

When performing on the world stage that is this modern age of ours, time zone information can be crucial to reaching your audience properly. This tutorial’s goal is to automate this task in Node.JS and to do so with a minimum of wasted time.

Begin with installation of our client:

npm install cloudmersive-validate-api-client --save

Now call the GetTimezonesRequest function using this snippet of code:

var CloudmersiveValidateApiClient = require('cloudmersive-validate-api-client');var defaultClient = CloudmersiveValidateApiClient.ApiClient.instance;// Configure API key authorization: Apikeyvar Apikey = defaultClient.authentications['Apikey'];Apikey.apiKey = 'YOUR API KEY';// Uncomment the following line to set a prefix for the API key, e.g. "Token" (defaults to null)//Apikey.apiKeyPrefix = 'Token';var apiInstance = new CloudmersiveValidateApiClient.AddressApi();var input = new CloudmersiveValidateApiClient.GetTimezonesRequest(); // GetTimezonesRequest | Input requestvar callback = function(error, data, response) {if (error) {console.error(error);} else {console.log('API called successfully. Returned data: ' + data);}};apiInstance.addressGetTimezone(input, callback);

Now any country that you input will return its time zones. Super easy.
