Recently I've been building
a little project
that pulls data from Google Analytics and shows your web statistics in a simple form. One thing I wanted to do was show the data for a quarter, but graphing by day is too chaotic and graphing by month only gives three points, so I wanted to graph by week. This was fine but the data returned by Analytics only gives me the week numbers, and since this project is aimed at demystifying web stats for normal people, it really needs normal dates on it!
I found that the
extension has a method
which accepts the year and week number, and makes a date you can then use as normal.
You can also do this the other way around; if you have a date in PHP, there's the 'W' flag for
which will return you the week number - very handy!
