Pvl Nice_time v.0.2

This plugin converts a date in relative time. It will output 'now' if the date given is less then 5 seconds ago, 'xx unit ago' will be outputted for longer intervals (where unit will be seconds, minutes, hours, days or weeks). If the date is greater than 4 weeks, it will return the full date formatted with the parameter format.

Syntax

{exp:nice_time date="{entry_date}" format="%d-%m-%Y %H:%i"}

Parameter

date is required. Can be a string date or a unix timestamp.
format optional (default: %d-%m-%Y %H:%i)

Future improvements

  • Allow to translate the output
  • Add parameters for the delay between the 'now', the 'xx unit ago' ouput and the normal date output
  • Allow the use of tag pairs or single tag

Any improvement or remarks are welcome.
