Midnight

A library to parse natural language date/time into a cron expression.

Build Status

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'midnight', ">= 0.0.1.pre"

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install midnight --pre

Usage

Midnight.parse('every 5 minutes').to_s
 => "*/5 * * * *"

Supported phrases

A full list of supported natural language phrases can be found in test_parsing.rb.

In the future there'll be support for more complex repetitions - a wishlist can be found in todo.txt.

Credits

My tokeniser code is based on the excellent Tickle gem, which in turn relies on Chronic for date parsing.
