SVG Calendar showing todays date

1 minute 34 seconds average read (313 words) AUG 05 Wednesday

This is a version of Terence Eden's SVG with JavaScript Calendar icon, but here using Squiz Matrix Keyword Replacements. This could also be used with other Matrix date based keywords, such as published date, updated date, etc.


These all use the %globals_date% keyword replacement, which outputs todays date like so (10 Jul 2019 4:00 PM), also this can be changed to any date format using the PHP Date Codes.
