ms CI codecov

A tiny (414B) and fast utility to convert milliseconds to and from strings.


NOTICE: This is a fork of vercel/ms!
In June 2019, I opened a PR with signficiant performance and code size improvements. After nearly 2 years of silence, it was eventually closed. 😢 A year into my wait, I started anew (this repo), hoping to improve upon my own improvements.


This module is delivered as:

Install

$ npm install --save @lukeed/ms

Usage

import { parse, format } from '@lukeed/ms';

// string => number
parse('2 days');   //=> 172800000
parse('1d');       //=> 86400000
parse('10h');      //=> 36000000
parse('2.5 hrs');  //=> 9000000
parse('2h');       //=> 7200000
parse('1m');       //=> 60000
parse('5s');       //=> 5000
parse('1y');       //=> 31557600000
parse('100');      //=> 100
parse('-3 days');  //=> -259200000
parse('-1h');      //=> -3600000
parse('-200');     //=> -200

// number => string
format(60000);             //=> '1m'
format(2 * 60000);         //=> '2m'
format(-3 * 60000);        //=> '-3m'
format(parse('10 hours')); //=> '10h'

// number => string (long)
format(60000, true);             //=> '1 minute'
format(2 * 60000, true);         //=> '2 minutes'
format(-3 * 60000, true);        //=> '-3 minutes'
format(parse('10 hours'), true); //=> '10 hours'

API

ms.parse(input)

Returns: Number

Parses the input string, returning the number of milliseconds.

input

Type: String

The human-readable time string; eg: 10min, 10m, 10 minutes.

ms.format(milli, long?)

Returns: Number

Formats the millisecond count to a human-readable time string.

Important: The output will be rounded to the nearest whole integer.

milli

Type: Number

The number of milliseconds.

long

Type: Boolean
Default: false

Whether or not the output should use the interval's long/full form; eg hour or hours instead of h.

Note: When long, the count and interval will be separated by a single space.
Also, when long, the interval may be pluralized; eg 1 second vs 2 seconds.

Credits

This is obviously a fork of zeit/ms.

I opened a PR in June 2019 that introduced significant performance gains and code reduction — it was ignored for nearly two years. This repository is a from-scratch re-implementation that takes the goals of that PR a bit further.
