Get the current date and day of the week and the current time


Sample code to get the current date, day of the week, and current time in Swift4.1.
You can get it as a string of the following format.

Thu, Apr 03, 2018

Here is the sample code to get it in the form shown above.

If you use Calendar.current, there is a possibility that you will get it in Japanese calendar (Heisei 00 year) depending on the setting (you want 2018/04/03, but 30/04/03 comes back), so it is better to get it in Gregorian calendar.
On the other hand, if you want a Japanese calendar, there is a way to get a Japanese calendar.
