Convert a variable or article custom field to UNIX time equivalent

Say I have a variable or custom field with a value of (for example) 1598356934 – is it possible to convert and show that value as a timestamp, preferably with PHP date() formatting/presentational stuff?

This feels like a job for etc_query but I’m not sure. A task for raw PHP perhaps?

Any pointers very warmly welcomed. Thank you.

I’d activate Advanced options pref and enable date function in <txp:evaluate />. Then call (untested)

<txp:evaluate query='date("Y-m-d", <txp:custom_field name="timestamp" escape="integer" />)' />
