String day = date.getDayFromDate(); // returns 'Saturday'
String grDay = date.getDayFromDate(locale:'el'); // returns 'Σάββατο'

Implementation

String? getDayFromDate({String locale = 'en'}) {
  initializeDateFormatting(locale);
  if (this == null) {
    return null;
  }
  if (this!.isEmpty) {
    return this;
  }
  var date = DateTime.tryParse(this!);
  if (date == null) {
    return null;
  }
  return DateFormat('EEEE', locale).format(date).toString();
