Java timeago library

This is a Java port of the jquery-timeago plug-in. Please visit the jquery-timeago project page to read more about fuzzy timestamps.

Building

The timeago project contains a Maven pom.xml file that builds a jar containing the TimeAgo class.

To build and run the included unit tests:

$ mvn clean install

Usage

TimeAgo time = new TimeAgo();
long current = System.currentTimeMillis();
String minutes = time.timeAgo(current - (15 * 60 * 1000));  // returns "15 minutes ago"
String hours = time.timeUntil(current - (6 * 60 * 60 * 1000));  // returns "6 hours from now"

This library is available from Maven Central.
