pub package CI

Installation

Add get_time_ago as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file.

dependencies:
  get_time_ago: ^1.0.7+1

Usage

Format any DateTime object into get_time_ago format by following steps:

// Import the plugin
import 'package:get_time_ago/get_time_ago.dart';

// Pass DateTime object as argument in the method
var _dateTime = DateTime.now().subtract(const Duration(minutes: 10)); // [DateTime] object
print(GetTimeAgo.parse(_dateTime)); // 10 minutes ago

// Formatting with locale
print(GetTimeAgo.parse(_dateTime, locale:'es')); // hace 10 minutos

Formatting String as get_time_ago

If you have saved a DateTime object as a String into a variable, database or cloud, then you have to first convert the String into DateTime object and then pass it as argument in parse method of get_time_ago plugin to format it into get_time_ago format by following steps:

// Import the plugin
import 'package:get_time_ago/get_time_ago.dart';

var _timestamp = '2021-05-10 05:21:37.712498'; // [DateTime] formatted as String.
var _convertedTimestamp = DateTime.parse(_timestamp); // Converting into [DateTime] object
var result = GetTimeAgo.parse(_convertedTimestamp); 
print(result);

Setting default locale

If you want to change your default locale, then call setDefaultLocale method and pass the locale code as the argument.

// Import the plugin
import 'package:get_time_ago/get_time_ago.dart';

@override
  void initState() {
    super.initState();
    GetTimeAgo.setDefaultLocale('fr'); // Sets the default locale to French
  }

Migrating to 1.0.3+

Starting with version 1.0.3 of the get_time_ago plugin, the default class name has been changed from TimeAgo to GetTimeAgo and method getTimeAgo has been renamed to parse to make the method call easy and reduce the confusion around class name and method name. It is recommended to migrate from old version to new version for seamless and efficient performance.
