jQuery Plugin: It’s CuteTime! (v 1.0.5) [UPDATE]

jquery-logo-256I am happy to announce the latest version of the CuteTime jQuery plugin.02_facebook-cutetime

CuteTime provides the ability to easily…

  • convert timestamps to ‘cuter’ language-styled forms (e.g. yesterday, 2 hours ago, last year, in the future!),
  • customize the time scales and output formatting, and
  • dynamically update the displayed CuteTime(s) upon request and/or automatically.

There was some excellent feedback from many of you following the initial release of CuteTime. And much of that feedback has been incorporated into this release.

Changes to Version 1.0.5…

  • updated the ‘cutetime’ attribute to use HTML 5 compliant ‘data-timestamp’ custom attribute
  • updates to settings are now non-constructive
  • added translations.txt to the bundle to store all contributed translations of the cuteness translations (special thanks to Vincent Rolfs for providing the first translation, German)
  • minified version now compiled using YUI Compressor

CuteTime is a customizable jQuery plugin that automatically converts timestamps to formats much cuter. Also has the ability to dynamically re-update and/or automatically update timestamps on a controlled interval.

If used by Selector, replaces the text of the provided object with a cuteTime.

If used as a function, returns a string containing a cuteTime version of the provided timestamp.


$('.timestamp').cuteTime({ /* OPTIONS * / });

cutetime_object = $('.timestamp').cuteTime();

$.cuteTime('2009/10/12 22:11:19');
