date.to_formatted_s(:db)            # => "2007-11-10"
date.to_s(:db)                      # => "2007-11-10"

date.to_formatted_s(:short)         # => "10 Nov"
date.to_formatted_s(:number)        # => "20071110"
date.to_formatted_s(:long)          # => "November 10, 2007"
date.to_formatted_s(:long_ordinal)  # => "November 10th, 2007"
date.to_formatted_s(:rfc822)        # => "10 Nov 2007"
date.to_formatted_s(:iso8601)       # => "2007-11-10"

Adding your own date formats to to_formatted_s

You can add your own formats to the Date::DATE_FORMATS hash. Use the format name as the hash key and either a strftime string or Proc instance that takes a date argument as the value.

# config/initializers/date_formats.rb
Date::DATE_FORMATS[:month_and_year] = '%B %Y'
Date::DATE_FORMATS[:short_ordinal] = ->(date) { date.strftime("%B #{date.day.ordinalize}") }
