| timedelta | danatime |
|-------------------------|------------------------------|
| 0 seconds | now |
| 1 second | a second ago |
| 2 - 60 seconds | 2 - 60 seconds ago |
| 1 minute | a minute ago |
| 2 - 60 minutes | 2 - 60 minutes ago |
| 1 hour | an hour ago |

| 6 - 24 hours, same day | 4:26 p.m. |
| 6 - 24 hours, yesterday | 4:26 p.m. yesterday |
| \> 24 hours, same year | Aug 10 |
| previous year | 8/10/2012 |


### Internationalization Notes

All values are internationalized and localized by default using
[Django's internationalization and localization support](https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.9/topics/i18n/).

#### 6 - 24 hours (same day/yesterday)

Uses `defaultfilters.time`, which defaults to the localized
`settings.TIME_FORMAT`.

Example: In [en](https://github.com/django/django/blob/master/django/conf/locale/en/formats.py),
`TIME_FORMAT = 'P'`.

#### \> 24 hours, same year

Uses `defaultfilters.date` with an argument of `'MONTH_DAY_FORMAT'`, the
localized `settings.MONTH_DAY_FORMAT`.

Example: In [en](https://github.com/django/django/blob/master/django/conf/locale/en/formats.py),
`MONTH_DAY_FORMAT = 'F j'`.

#### previous year

Uses `defaultfilters.date` with an argument of `'n/j/Y'`.

Example: 10 August 2012 is formatted as `8/10/2012`.

Override this by passing an optional argument with a format to the filter tag.

#### previous year format examples:

Pass `None` to use the default, localized `settings.DATE_FORMAT`:

```
{{ mytime|danatime:None }}
```

Pass `SHORT_DATE_FORMAT` to use the localized `settings.SHORT_DATE_FORMAT`:

```
{{ mytime|danatime:"SHORT_DATE_FORMAT" }}
```

Pass a format string like `"F j, Y"` to use a custom format:

```
{{ mytime|danatime:"F j, Y" }}
```

This particular format yields `August 8, 2012`.

See Django's [available format strings](https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.9/ref/templates/builtins/#date)
for help.
