Date Input and other code sharing

Hi Guys,


Im just curious as to whether anyone has any links to any sites where people are sharing apps and coding ideas etc for powerapps? A more open source sort of thing? 


The only reason i ask is because im trying to write a piece of code that auto corrects a users bad date inputs and the field will change it and display as the format dd-mm-yyyy,


Im guessing that this has been done and many other great thing done by many individuals here and around before, so why dont we have a massive display (i know about the app templates 🙂


for example the following 


1/1/10 and 01012010 and 1-1-10 etc would all change to


01-01-2010 (its how i want it)


PS i couldnt really find anywhere else to ask this?
