Twix.js allows you to work with date ranges

Twix

Twix is a simple but opinionated JS library for working with date ranges, and includes a customizable smart formatter. It's written in CoffeeScript and it depends on Moment.js.

It allows you to do, among other things, this:

var t = moment("1982-01-25T09:30").twix("1982-01-25T13:30");
 
t.format();  //=> Jan 25, 1982, 9:30 AM - 1:30 PM 
 
t.isSame("day"); //=> true 
t.humanizeLength(); //=> "4 hours" 
t.count("days"); //=> 1 

And much more.

Documentation

Attention Moment 2.10.x users: You need to upgrade to the latest Twix! You also should make sure not to be on Moment 2.10.0 (i.e. upgrade to the latest point release) because it has some compatibility issues with Twix.

Breaking change in 0.6.0 Twix ranges will ignore changes to their endpoints; once you create the range, it's frozen in place. Construct new ranges to grow/shrink.

If you want to build Twix for yourself, clone the repo and run this:

make configure build

Configure just installs the NPMs (including CoffeeScript) and brings in Moment as a submodule, so you only have to do that part once.

Note that the source is src/twix.coffee; the output is bin/twix.js. You can run the tests via

make test

You can also run the tests in-browser by building and then loading test/test.html.

Patches are welcome!

  • Submit pull requests to the develop branch. I merge develop to master when we cut a release.
  • Don't include your changes to the generated .js files in the patch; they're much harder to merge. I'll generate them when I cut the release.
