Simple plugin for parsing out date ranges from user input.
DateRange.parse("2008 - 2010")
will give you Array consisting of 2 elements: [start_of_range, end_of_range].
It is pretty clever about recognizing what user wants, just check out the code to see all the things it does.
It will return nil if one of the times are corrupt (like 13th month) or missing.
It will also look at context if no end time is given so:
2008 becomes 2008-01-01 00:00:00 - 2008-12-31 23:59:59
2008-01 becomes 2008-01-01 00:00:00 - 2008-01-31 23:59:59
2008-01-01 becomes 2008-01-01 00:00:00 - 2008-01-01 23:59:59
and so forth…
