Juration.js

A simple natural language duration parser written in javascript. Time ranges (in seconds) can also be converted to human readable strings. Check out the demo.

Inspired by chronic, and chronic_duration.

Usage

Parsing

juration.parse("3mins 5secs"); // returns 185

Stringifying

juration.stringify(185); // returns "3 mins 5 secs"
juration.stringify(185, { format: 'small' }); // returns "3 mins 5 secs"
juration.stringify(185, { format: 'micro' }); // returns "3m 5s"
juration.stringify(185, { format: 'long' });  // returns "3 minutes 5 seconds"

Examples

Parse-able strings:

  • 12.4 secs
  • 3 mins 4 sec
  • 2 hrs 20 min
  • 2h20min
  • 6 mos 1 day
  • 47 yrs 6 mos and 4d
  • 3 weeks and 2 days

Todo

  • Add customisable default unit option, e.g. juration.parse("10", { defaultUnit: 'minutes' }) // returns 600
  • Parse chrono format i.e. hh:mm:ss
