time-js

date-agnostic time parsing for node and the browser

time.js

Parses time input with no relation to dates, with the option to convert to the next immediate corresponding Date.

Built for Promt, to solve this problem.

Under active development, which may include breaking changes.

Browser

<script src="time.js"></script>
<script>
  var t = Time('2');
  t.hours()    // 2
  t.minutes()  // 0
  t.toString() // '2:00'
  t.nextDate() // Sep 10 2:00 (assuming it is 1 o'clock Sep 10)
</script>

Node

npm install time-js


var time = require('time');
time('2');
// you get the idea, or see below for more ideas

Some example uses can be viewed in examples.html.

Parses strings such as "8:20" into a Date-less Time.

new Time('1')    // 1:00
new Time('1:23') // 1:23

If you fancy it, you can use safely drop the 'new'.

Time('1.23') // 1:23
Time('123')  // 1:23

am/pm can optionally be specified.

Time('8:30 pm') // 8:30 pm
Time('3p')      // 3:00 pm
Time('3 A.M.')  // 3:00 am

Converts Time into the next corresponding JavaScript Date.

// assume it's 3:15 pm Aug 10
Time('415').nextDate()  // 4:15 pm Aug 10
Time('2').nextDate()    // 2:00 am Aug 11
Time('2 pm').nextDate() // 2:00 pm Aug 11

Does validation statically...

Time.isValid('8:00')  // true
Time.isValid('12:60') // false
Time.isValid('13:23') // false

... or after construction.

Time('1').isValid()      // true
Time('12.0').isValid()   // false
Time('12:202').isValid() // false

Accepts numbers too.

Time(1).isValid() // true

Military time is not supported, but may be in the future (or not).
