Many online social products, and more continue to, avoid a formal timestamp format… 2009-10-10 23:14:17 and Thu, October 29, 2004 12:14:19 PM … opting for more user friendly, “warm and fuzzy,” human-readable styles…
CuteTime is a customizable jQuery plugin (jQuery.cuteTime) that automatically converts timestamps to formats much cuter. It also has the ability to manually and/or automatically update timestamps on a controlled interval.
- 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
- update automatically and/or manually the displayed CuteTime(s).
