moment-countdown

moment-countdown is a tiny moment.js plugin that integrates with Countdown.js. The file is here. The NPM is moment-countdown.

How it works

//from then until now
moment("1982-5-25").countdown().toString(); //=> '30 years, 10 months, 14 days, 1 hour, 8 minutes, and 14 seconds'

//accepts a moment, JS Date, or anything parsable by the Date constructor
moment("1955-8-21").countdown("1982-5-25").toString(); //=> '26 years, 9 months, and 4 days'

//also works with the args flipped, like diff()
moment("1982-5-25").countdown("1955-8-21").toString(); //=> '26 years, 9 months, and 4 days'

//accepts all of countdown's options
moment().countdown("1982-5-25", countdown.MONTHS|countdown.WEEKS, NaN, 2).toString(); //=> '370 months, and 2.01 weeks'

See Countdown's documentation for descriptions of those extra options.

Twix integration

If you're using Twix.js, you can also use countdown on Twix ranges:

moment().twix("1982-5-25").countdown(countdown.DAYS|countdown.MINUTES).toString(); //=> '11276 days, and 87 minutes'

Getting set up

Browser

Grab moment.js, countdown.js, and moment-countdown.js. Then inside your header:

<script src="moment.min.js"></script>
<script src="countdown.min.js"></script>
<script src="moment-countdown.min.js"></script>

And you're off the races. If you're also using Twix, include it after moment but before moment-countdown.

Node

npm install moment-countdown

You should also have Moment and Countdown installed, which you do like this:

npm install moment countdown

In your node code:

require('moment-countdown');
