Instead of simply pushing numbers on a timer into the template, now we'll move on to pushing actual Dates. We'll still use the Async pipe, but we'll also add on the Date pipe with some formatting to display the Date just the way we want it.

The date pipe won't work in the current release of Safari as of 2016 June 25. Angular2 will self-immolate and very helpfully tell you that the problem arose in [object Object]. If you're trying to get this to work, you'll need to add the Intl polyfill to your index.html.

  1. Install the Intl package. npm install --save intl

  2. Then, for English locale, in your index.html under the other "polyfills" you must already have, add:

<script src="node_modules/intl/dist/Intl.js"></script>
<script src="node_modules/intl/locale-data/jsonp/en.js"></script>

What IDE are you using that autopopulates your imports so well?
