Human-oriented representation of time deltas, a Python library
Convert time deltas into phrases like “5min ago”, “3h ago”, “2 days ago” etc.
Base work from Adomas Paltanavicius, but with two added versions: french and “short english”
This package has a number of modules in it, each for separate language. It is standard that module pytimeago.X has function X, which accepts at least on argument – number of seconds between two events. It may also accept extra keywords, which should be documented in the docstring of the function. Returned is always unicode string.
from pytimeago.english import english # or other… from time import time, sleep
a = time() # …do something here… delta = int(time() - a) print “job started %s” % english(delta)
job started 15mins ago
