Formatting - Duration
Get formatted duration
const myDuration = new Duration(165684)
While such an object is quite neat for developers, it would be a pain when users see the same. There are methods for converting the any duration instance into a human-readable string.
The DD:HH:MM:SS format
toTimeString method outputs a string in that format. Quite nice for timers and stuff.
myDuration.toTimeString(); // `00:00:02:45:684`
What if I don't want all of that? I just want a MM:SS timer!
Ok sure. You can pass
to parameters to the method to just get the duration between those two.
myDuration.toTimeString("m", "s"); // `02:45`
toTimeStringto generate a
The word format
toDescriptiveString methods output a string in that format. Quite nice for normal text that ain't timers and stuff.
myDuration.toDescriptiveString(); // `0 days, 0 hours, 2 minutes, 45 seconds, 684 milliseconds, 0 microseconds, 0 nanoseconds` myDuration.toWordString(); // `zero days, zero hours, two minutes, forty five seconds, six hundred and eighty four milliseconds, zero microseconds, zero nanoseconds`
You can provide specific units if you don't want all units.
myDuration.toDescriptiveString(["s", "h"]); // `0 hours, 45 seconds`
Still too long? Fortunately, there's another method to generate a short string,
myDuration.toShortString(["s", "h"]); // `0h 45s`
