ms-i18n

Join the community on Discord

A fork of ms that supports multiple languages (also named as locales).

Use this package to easily convert various time formats to milliseconds.

Examples

Available languages

  • fr (french)
  • en (english)
  • es (spanish)
  • pt (portuguese)

ms-i18n only works with the two letters long code (iso 639-1 code), not the full name of a lang

Initialising

const MSi18n = require("ms-i18n");
 
// replace lang with an iso 639-1 code
const ms = new MSi18n(lang) 
 
// You can also do it like this (much simpler) :
 
// replace lang with an iso 639-1 code
const ms = new (require("ms-i18n"))(lang); 

Basic usage

Note : These examples are only for the english language (it may change in the future)

ms.format('2 days');    // 172800000
ms.format('1d');        // 86400000
ms.format('10h');       // 36000000
ms.format('2.5 hrs');   // 9000000
ms.format('2h');        // 7200000
ms.format('1m');        // 60000
ms.format('5s');        // 5000
ms.format('1y');        // 31557600000
ms.format('100');       // 100
ms.format('-3 days');   // -259200000
ms.format('-1h');       // -3600000
ms.format('-200');      // -200

Convert from Milliseconds

ms.format(60000);                   // "1m"
ms.format(2 * 60000);               // "2m"
ms.format(-3 * 60000);              // "-3m"
ms.format(ms.format('10 hours'));   // "10h"

Time Format Written-Out

ms.format(60000, { long: true });                   // "1 minute"
ms.format(2 * 60000, { long: true });               // "2 minutes"
ms.format(-3 * 60000, { long: true });              // "-3 minutes"
ms.format(ms.format('10 hours'), { long: true });   // "10 hours"

Lang-related properties

// Returns the ISO 639-1 code for this lang
ms.langIsoCode
 
 // Returns the name of the lang, in the lang itself
ms.langName
 
// Returns the english name for this lang
ms.langEnglishName

Features

  • Works only with Node.js actually, but in the future we will make it works with browser
  • If a number is supplied, a string with a unit is returned
  • If a string that contains the number is supplied, it returns it as a number (e.g.: it returns 100 for '100')
  • If you pass a string with a number and a valid unit, the number of equivalent milliseconds is returned

Caught a bug / want to add language that isn't available ?

If you know how to fork :

  1. Fork this repository to your own GitHub account and then clone it to your local device
  2. Link the package to the global module directory: npm link
  3. Within the module you want to test your local development instance of ms-i18n, just link it to the dependencies: npm link ms-i18n. Instead of the default one from npm, Node.js will now use your clone of ms-i18n!

As always, you can run the tests using: npm test

If you don't know how to fork :

You can still create an issue in the repository

Install

npm i ms-i18n
