Package description

What is ms?

The 'ms' npm package is a simple utility library for parsing and formatting various time formats. It allows you to easily convert between different time units such as milliseconds, seconds, minutes, hours, and days. It is commonly used to work with durations and timeouts in a human-readable format.

What are ms's main functionalities?

Convert from milliseconds to human-readable format

This feature allows you to convert a duration in milliseconds to a string that represents the duration in a more human-readable format, such as '1m' for one minute.

"const ms = require('ms');
console.log(ms(60000)); // '1m'"

Convert from human-readable format to milliseconds

This feature enables you to convert a human-readable time format into its equivalent number of milliseconds. For example, '2 days' would be converted to 172800000 milliseconds.

"const ms = require('ms');
console.log(ms('2 days')); // 172800000"

Round trip conversion

This demonstrates a round trip conversion where a human-readable duration is first converted to milliseconds and then back to a human-readable format.

"const ms = require('ms');
const duration = ms('1 hour');
console.log(ms(duration)); // '1h'"

  • Node/Browser compatible. Published as ms in NPM.
  • If a number is supplied to ms, a string with a unit is returned.
  • If a string that contains the number is supplied, it returns it as a number (e.g: it returns 100 for '100').
  • If you pass a string with a number and a valid unit, the number of equivalent ms is returned.
