Humanizer



The humanizer class helps you bring a human touch to your application.


Usage

Files

The fileSize method converts a file size in bytes to a more human friendly format.

$this->humanizer->fileSize(1024); // Will return "1 KiB"

It will return binary suffixes by default can also make it output file sizes using decimal suffixes by setting the optional second parameter to false.

$this->humanizer->fileSize(1024, false); // Will return "1.02 KB"

Dates

The day method will return a human friendly representation of the day. If the day isn't within the yesterday/today/tomorrow range then it'll return the date in the format specified by the optional second parameter.

$this->humanizer->day(Time::now()); // Will return "today"

$this->humanizer->day(Time::now()->rewind(60*60*24)); // Will return "yesterday"

$this->humanizer->day(Time::now()->forward(60*60*24)); // Will return "tomorrow"

The time method will return a human friendly representation of the time. If the time isn't within the yesterday/today/tomorrow range then it'll return the time in the format specified by the optional second parameter. There is also a third parameter that lets you set the clock format.

$this->humanizer->time(Time::now()); // Will return "a minute ago"

$this->humanizer->time(Time::now()->rewind(60*4)); // Will return "4 minutes ago"

$this->humanizer->time(Time::now()->rewind(60*60)); // Will return "today, 08:43"

$this->humanizer->time(Time::now()->rewind(60*60*24)); // Will return "yesterday, 08:43"

$this->humanizer->time(Time::now()->forward(60*4)); // Will return "in 4 minutes"

$this->humanizer->time(Time::now()->forward(60*60)); // Will return "today, 10:43"

$this->humanizer->time(Time::now()->forward(60*60*24)); // Will return "tomorrow, 10:43"

Both the day and time methods use the I18n class so you can translate the strings to your own language if needed.
