ActionScript Relative Date Library

An ActionScript 3 Library for working with and generating relative date strings.

Overview

An ActionScript 3 Library for working with and generating relative date strings (e.g. "two hours ago" instead of "Mon Jan 5 17:24:33 GMT-0700 2011").

This project was first mentioned in my blog post at http://blogs.adobe.com/charles/2011/05/relative-time-library-for-actionscript.html.

Features

The ActionScript Relative Date Library is a simple API (a single class, really). It takes two date objects and returns a string describing the difference in time in a human-readable form.

Dependencies

Reference

Usage

var relativeTime:String = RelativeDate.getRelativeDate(firstDate, secondDate);
var relativeTime:String = RelativeDate.getRelativeDateFromNow(someDate);
