View Source Cldr.Date (Cldr Dates & Times v2.12.0)

Provides localization and formatting of a Date struct or any map with the keys :year, :month, :day and :calendar.

Cldr.Date provides support for the built-in calendar Calendar.ISO or any calendars defined with ex_cldr_calendars

CLDR provides standard format strings for Date which are reresented by the styles :short, :medium, :long and :full. This allows for locale-independent formatting since each locale may define the underlying format string as appropriate.
