a very simple function to stringify any huge number of seconds. give it million seconds and it tells you how many days, hours, minutes and seconds in a pretty string.
to install pretty-seconds, use npm:
$ npm install pretty-seconds
then in your node.js app, get reference to the function like that:
var prettySeconds = require('pretty-seconds');
make a pretty string out of 80 seconds
// outputs "1 minute and 20 seconds" echo prettySeconds(80);
make a pretty string out of 86462 seconds
// outputs "1 day, 1 minute and 2 seconds" echo prettySeconds(86462);
you see, it's really pretty and respects grammar for singular and plural.
all this function does is some maths and string concenations to have a pretty string instead of a long number of seconds.
- seconds - any positive or negative number (integer or float) you fancy
