show_minutes true Show the minutes.
show_seconds true Show the seconds.
import { elapsed } from '@ouroboros/dates';

let s;

// s = '10'
s = elapsed(10);

// s = '0:10'
s = elapsed(10, {show_zero_minutes: true});

// s = '0:00:10'
s = elapsed(10, {show_zero_hours: true});

// s = '5:00:00'
s = elapsed(18000);
