Date_Holidays 0.17.2 was released today; with two new drivers and some bug fixes!
Date_Holidays is a PEAR package for PHP that is used for determining whether a specific date is a [public] holiday in some specified country, listing all such holidays and for these reasons is a useful component for scheduling applications.
This is driver based, one per country.
Currently there are drivers for: Austria, Denmark, England & Wales, Germany, Ireland, The Netherlands (new) , Norway (new), Slovenia, Sweden and the USA.
There are also drivers for Christian and Jewish holidays along with special ‘UN’ celebrated days such as “World Health Day”.
It’s very easy to write new drivers for Date_Holidays, heck I wrote the Ireland driver So if you’ve noticed there is no driver for where you are I’d recommend that you do so.
