= Autochronic <b>Version 0.2.0 (7 Feb, 2008)</b> Author:: Yossef Mendelssohn (firstname.lastname@example.org) Copyright:: Copyright (c) 2008, Flawed Logic, OG Consulting, Yossef Mendelssohn License:: MIT License. See MIT-LICENSE file for more details. Autochronic is a Ruby on Rails that will automatically make any date or datetime attribute in any model automatically handle natural-language strings. There is no effort on your part, no creation of before_save callbacks or writing your own accessors to handle the special input. == Installation Unpack the autochronic directory into vendor/rails/ in your rails project. A definitive public revision control access point is forthcoming that will make it possible to install the plugin via script/plugin install. == Using Autochronic Just use your models normally. They'll do the work for you automatically. Automatic Chronic. Auto Chronic. Autochronic. == Version history: 0.2.0 - Initial release Developed under Rails 2.0.2 using chronic 0.2.3. That worked for me, and I'm not making any guarantees for anything else. == Known issues: Chronic's parsing of 'today' is time-dependent in a bad way. See the following irb dump. >> Chronic.parse('today') => Fri Feb 08 00:00:00 -0600 2008 >> Date.today.to_s => "2008-02-07" >> Time.now => Thu Feb 07 23:13:28 -0600 2008 More info: >> Time.local(2008, 2, 7, 22, 59, 59) => Thu Feb 07 22:59:59 -0600 2008 >> time1 = _ => Thu Feb 07 22:59:59 -0600 2008 >> time2 = Time.local(2008, 2, 7, 23, 0, 0) => Thu Feb 07 23:00:00 -0600 2008 >> Chronic.parse('today', :now => time1) => Thu Feb 07 23:30:00 -0600 2008 >> Chronic.parse('today', :now => time2) => Fri Feb 08 00:00:00 -0600 2008
