Basic Usage

First, add a your format to a Pool, through the expansion of DateFormat

extension DateFormat {
    static let shortDateAndTime = DateFormat(value: "MMM d, E 'at' HH:mm")
    static let shortDay = DateFormat(value: "d")
    static let shortMonth = DateFormat(value: "MMM")
    static let monthAndYear = DateFormat(value: "LLLL YYYY")
    static let shortWeekName = DateFormat(value: "EE")

Then get an DateFormatter from the pool using PropertyWrapper.

struct ContentView: View {
    @DateFormatterPool(.shortDateAndTime) var shortDateAndTimeFormatter
    var body: some View {
        VStack {
            Text(shortDateAndTimeFormatter.string(from: Date())) // Aug 23, Tue at 12:10

or in ViewModel

final class ViewModel {
    @Published var dateString: String
    @DateFormatterPool(.shortDateAndTime) var shortDateAndTimeFormatter
    func configure() {
        dateString = shortDateAndTimeFormatter.string(from: Date())) // Aug 23, Tue at 12:10
