    naturaltime

    A simple natural language time parser for node.js using a naive bayesian classifier.

    installation

    npm install naturaltime
    

    usage

    var naturaltime = require('naturaltime');
     
    var five_minutes_ago = naturaltime('5 minutes ago');
    var in_five_minutes = naturaltime('in 5 minutes');
    var a_year_ago = naturaltime('1 year ago');
     
    // specify the start date 
    var a_year_and_a_week_ago = naturaltime('1 week ago', a_year_ago);
     
    // create a parser 
    var parser = naturaltime.createParser({language: 'en-us'});
    var parsed = parser.parse('2 weeks ago');
    // => {units: 'weeks', amount: 2, relative: 'past'} 
    var date = parser.date('2 weeks ago');

    limitations

    • the string you give naturaltime must have a decimal number in it
    • number matching is naive - if there are two numbers in your string, the first one will be extracted and used, not necessarily correct. So, just give us one number
    • naturaltime is not guaranteed to do things right. If you find a case that doesn't work like you expect, open an issue or fork the repo and fix it :)

    internationalization

    naturaltime currently only understands US English. All that is needed for more language support is a training set for each new language. If you know a foreign language, please fork this repo and add it!
