Like performance.now() but in nanoseconds.

Although the value is always in nanoseconds, the time resolution might be less precise. For example, in Node.js, it is 1ns, but in Firefox it is 1ms and in Chrome it is 0.1ms.

Hire me

Please reach out if you're looking for a Node.js API or CLI engineer (11 years of experience). Most recently I have been Netlify Build's and Netlify Plugins' technical lead for 2.5 years. I am available for full-time remote positions.

Example

import preciseNow from 'precise-now'

const start = preciseNow()
const end = preciseNow()
const duration = end - start

Install

npm install precise-now

This package works in both Node.js >=18.18.0 and browsers.

This is an ES module. It must be loaded using an import or import() statement, not require(). If TypeScript is used, it must be configured to output ES modules, not CommonJS.

API

preciseNow()

Return value: number

Return the number of nanoseconds since the time origin.
