Cogsworth: Natural Language Time Parser for Ruby
An attempt to make a natural language time parser for Ruby so you can convert from something like "1 hour 20 min" to value in seconds, and vice versa.
The name of this gem is derived from Cogsworth, the character from Beauty and the Beast, who is a clock. Get it?
Cogsworth.string_to_seconds('2 hours 30 minutes') => 9000 Cogsworth.seconds_to_string(142510) => '1d 15h 35m 10s'
Acceptable String Formats
'2 days 1 hour 35 minutes 25 seconds' '2days 1hr 35min 25sec' '2d1h35m25s'
