    smd - Small Dates Build Status

    Represents dates as 3-bytes in msgpack. We assume dates after 1970, and reasonably close to 'now'. Their best use is for fairly short-lived expiration dates (months), which don't require incredible precision (nearest hour or nearest minute is fine). These constraints yield a compression of around 66%, which is fantastic for the intended uses.

    Examples

    var SmD = require('smd');
     
    var s = SmD.now();
    // => 53391
    var l = SmD.at(s);
    // => 1371855692507
    var d = SmD.date(s);
    // => Fri Jun 21 2013 19:01:32 GMT-0400 (EDT)
    var SmD = require('smd')
      , msg = require('msgpack');
     
    var d = Date.now();
    // => 1371855692507
    var s = SmD.from(d);
    // => 53391
     
    msg.pack(d);
    // => <SlowBuffer cb 42 73 f6 8f 8a 2d b0 00>
    msg.pack(r);
    // => Pack <SlowBuffer cd d0 8f>
