    Install

    npm install --save time-delta

    Usage

    Node.js

    In Node.js environment library will load requested locales automatically.

    const timeDelta = require('time-delta');
    
    const instance = timeDelta.create({
      locale: 'en', // default
    });
    
    const date1 = new Date('2015-04-01T21:00:00');
    const date2 = new Date('2015-04-01T23:17:10');
    
    // Outputs: "2 hours, 17 minutes".
    console.log(instance.format(date1, date2));

    Browser

    In Browser environment you will need to load each locale manually. This ensures minimal size of your application bundle.

    // Importing the library
    import * as timeDelta from 'time-delta';
    
    // Importing locales that you want to use
    import enLocale from 'time-delta/locales/en';
    import ruLocale from 'time-delta/locales/ru';
    
    // Registering locale
    timeDelta.addLocale(enLocale);
    
    // You can register multiple locales
    timeDelta.addLocale([enLocale, ruLocale]);
    
    // Creating an instance
    const instance = timeDelta.create({
      locale: 'en', // default
    });
    
    const date1 = new Date('2015-04-01T21:00:00');
    const date2 = new Date('2015-04-01T23:17:10');
    
    // Outputs: "2 hours, 17 minutes".
    console.log(instance.format(date1, date2));

    Configuration

    The library accepts the following configuration object:

    Option Type Default Description
    locale string 'en' Locale to use. See the full list
    span integer 2 How much time units to include in the result
    delimiter string ', ' Delimiter to use between time units
    unitType string 'long' Unit type format. One of long, short or narrow
    unitTypeLookupOrder array ['long', 'short', 'narrow'] Unit type lookup order (used for fallback)
    autoloadLocales boolean true Whether to auto-load locales in Node.js environment (doesn't work in browsers)

    You can pass config to factory method during instantiation:

    const instance = timeDelta.create(config);

    You can also specify it when calling the format() function:

    instance.format(date1, date2, config);

    Instance-level config is automatically inherited when calling format(), so you can customize the defaults.
