Show the difference between a date and now (4 days ago)

branch: master
README
A better way to display relative dates using JavaScript. Instead of a raw date
string, this script will return strings like "2 hours ago" or "5 days".


JavaScript Usage: (returns string)

  humaneDate(new Date);
  humaneDate('2008-01-28T20:24:17Z');


jQuery Plugin Usage:

  <span title="2008-01-28T20:24:17Z">January 1, 2008 20:24:17 GMT</span>

  $('span').humaneDates();

  <time datetime="2008-01-28T20:24:17Z">January 1, 2008 20:24:17 GMT</time>

  $('time').humaneDates();


To run the full test suite:
  cd test
  ./test.sh
