⌚ Micro library to make working with milliseconds easier.


If you have ever written something like this
const ONE_DAY = 1000 * 60 * 60 * 24;

... then this micro library is made just for you.

Install

$ npm install --save utils.time

Usage

ES6+ way

import { seconds } from 'utils.time';

seconds(3);
//=> 3000

Pre-ES6 way

const { seconds } = require('utils.time');

seconds(3);
//=> 3000

Motivation

Too often, I saw myself writing code that resembled something like this

const ONE_SECOND = 1000;
let twentyFourHours = ONE_SECOND * 60 * 60 * 24;

const fn = () {
  // some code that runs every 24 hours
};

setInterval(fn, twentyFourHours);

... and not just in one place, but in several places. At some point, I would just extract all these constants either at the top-level of the module, or just create a small module itself. What you're seeing is the result of the small module I'd end up using in other projects.

NOTE: I'm aware of the awesome library by zeit (ms), but I felt like it did way more than I needed it to, which is why I decided to publish my version of it. Once again, to reiterate, ms is great, but I just needed something smaller.
