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
