    parse-duration

    convert a human readable duration to ms

    Installation

    With your favourite package manager:

    • packin: packin add parse-duration
    • component: component install jkroso/parse-duration
    • npm: npm install parse-duration

    then in your app:

    var parse = require('parse-duration')

    API

    parse(str)

    convert str to ms

    var ns = parse('1ns') // => 1 / 1e6 
    var μs = parse('1μs') // => 1 / 1000 
    var ms = parse('1ms') // => 1 
    var s = parse('1s')   // => ms * 1000 
    var m = parse('1m')   // => s * 60 
    var h = parse('1h')   // => m * 60 
    var d = parse('1d')   // => h * 24 
    var w = parse('1w')   // => d * 7 
    var y = parse('1y')   // => d * 365.25 

    It can also handle basic compound expressions

    parse('1hr 20mins') // => 1 * h + 20 * m 

    whitespace

    parse('1 hr 20 mins') // => 1 * h + 20 * m 

    And most other types of noise

    parse('running length: 1hour:20mins') // => 1* h + 20 * m 

    You can even use negatives

    parse('2hr -40mins') // => 1 * h + 20 * m 

    And exponents

    parse('2e3s') // => 2000 * s 

    Available unit types are:

    • nanoseconds (ns)
    • microseconds (μs)
    • milliseconds (ms)
    • seconds (s, sec)
    • minutes (m, min)
    • hours (h, hr)
    • days (d)
    • weeks (w, wk)
    • months
    • years (y, yr)
