Calculates dates and durations whilst taking into account working and non-working times. It creates calendars similar to what you can find in project scheduling software like Microsoft project and Primavera P6.
Workpattern is a library with no monkey-patching and is tested against Ruby
You can install it using:
gem install workpattern
Or you can add it to your Gemfile with:
Then run the bundle command to install it.
Configure and Calculate
First create a
Workpattern to hold all the working and resting times.
mywp=Workpattern.new 'My Workpattern',2011,10
That line created a
My Workpattern starting on 1-Jan-2011 and continuing for
10 years until
mywp is created with a 24 hour a day working time. Next step is to tell it to ignore weekends by making every Saturday and Sunday non-working.
mywp.resting :days => :weekend
Workpattern.clock method can be used to specify the non-working times for each weekday. Any class that responds to
#min methods such as
DateTime can be used instead of
mywp.resting :days =>:weekday, :from_time=>Workpattern.clock(0,0),:to_time=>Workpattern.clock(8,59) mywp.resting :days =>:weekday, :from_time=>Workpattern.clock(12,0),:to_time=>Workpattern.clock(12,59) mywp.resting :days =>:weekday, :from_time=>Workpattern.clock(18,0),:to_time=>Workpattern.clock(23,59)
As well as
:weekday it is possible to use
mywp setup, the
#calc method is used to add 32 hours which must be supplied as the number of whole minutes (1920) to a date.
my_date=Time.gm 2011,9,1,9,0 result_date = mywp.calc my_date,1920 # => 6/9/11@18:00
The result takes into account the non-working or resting times.
Subtracting a date is just as easy by using a negative number of minutes in
Finding the duration between two dates is also easy using the
diff_result = mywp.diff my_date, result_date # => 1920
Vacations can be added to the
Workpattern using the
mywp.resting :days => :all, :start => DateTime.civil(2011,5,1), :finish => DateTime.civil(2011,5,7)
Find out if a specific date and time is working or not.
mydate = DateTime.civil 2011,5,2,9,10 mywp.resting? mydate # => true mywp.working? mydate # => false
# Fetch a specific Workpattern Workpattern.get "My Workpattern" # Delete a specific Workpattern Workpattern.delete "My Workpattern" # Delete all Workpatterns Workpattern.clear
