moment.duration().humanize(); moment.duration().humanize(withSuffix); moment.duration().humanize(withSuffix, thresholds); // from 2.25.0 moment.duration().humanize(thresholds); // from 2.25.0

Sometimes, you want all the goodness of moment#from but you don't want to have to create two moments, you just want to display a length of time.

Enter moment.duration().humanize().

moment.duration(1, "minutes").humanize(); // a minute
moment.duration(2, "minutes").humanize(); // 2 minutes
moment.duration(24, "hours").humanize();  // a day

By default, the return string is describing a duration a month (suffix-less). If you want an oriented duration in a month, a month ago (with suffix), pass in true as seen below.

moment.duration(1, "minutes").humanize(true); // in a minute

For suffixes before now, pass in a negative number.

moment.duration(-1, "minutes").humanize(true); // a minute ago

Invalid durations are humanized to the localized version of Invalid Date.

moment.duration.invalid().humanize(); // Invalid Date

Humanize output can be configured with relative time thresholds. To specify thresholds for a particular invocation of humanize, pass them as a sole argument or after suffix arg:

moment.duration(-1, 'week').humanize(true, {d: 7, w: 4}); // a week ago
moment.duration(-1, 'week').humanize({d: 7, w: 4}); // a week

Note: Passing thresholds in humanize was added in 2.25.0.
