Custom date/time format in GNOME 3.16?

After going from F20 to F22 I lost the ability to format the date/time in the top bar with the Format Clock extension. The extension has not been updated and no longer works! :(

What I was hoping for was something along the lines of:

%A %e %B %Y / %I:%M:%S %p (for example: Monday 28 August 2016 / 12:47 PM)

After looking at this, I was unable to find the dateMenu.js file that was mentioned (if I'm understanding things right). Trying to glean some clues from the code of the still-functional Word Clock also got me nowhere. Couldn't find anything in dconf (which doesn't mean that it isn't hiding in there somewhere). Presumably there's a file or something somewhere that I could alter to get it how I want it. Any thoughts?

Yes, that each time gnome and other DE's become less and less customizable. I don't get why... I want to change that datetime format too, but I'll have to give up. Once I was told that to change the datetime format of the panel clock I should decompile gnome, find The File, edit it to my whishes and re-compile gnome again. Well, I don't know how to do that...
