I described the motivation behind this little filter in Aged to Perfection blog post.

install

npm install aged --save-dev

use

function aged(n, units, verbose)
n           - positive number
units       - time units: 'days', 'hours', 'minutes', etc
verbose     - print filename if file is too young

aged can be used to define different metrics to run on different files depending on their age. For example, to pass older, stable source files through static grunt-complexity plugin you can:

// Gruntfile.js

var aged = require('aged');
var files = ['Gruntfile.js', 'src/index.js'];

grunt.initConfig({
    complexity: {
        fresh: {
            src: files,
            options: {
                cyclomatic: 5,
                halstead: 10,
                maintainability: 100
            }
        },
        aged: {
            src: files,
            filter: aged(3, 'days', true),
            options: {
                errorsOnly: false,
                cyclomatic: 2,
                halstead: 10,
                maintainability: 100
            }
        }
    }
});

This will pass all files though less stringent fresh limits, while passing files older than 3 days though higher limits.

advanced

You can easily define the opposite filter to aged

function fresher(n, units) {
    var isAged = aged(n, units);
    return function (filename) {
        return !isAged(filename);
    };
}

Any time units are allowed, see momentjs docs.
