Date Span Alfred Workflow
April 2, 2014
In an unprecedented frenzy of blogworthy activity, I’ve just created an Alfred workflow for quickly getting the range between two dates. After hours of contemplation, I decided to call it Date Span.
It uses PHP’s DateInterval to take a variety of datetime formats and output the range in various units. For example, give it a single date and it’ll calculate based on the current date and time:
Give it two dates (separated by " to ") and it’ll calculate the difference between them:
And just because it’s friendly, it’ll remind you if the date is in the past:
I’m not thrilled with the icon I whipped up for it, and I’ve not tested my theoretical bash-centric guess at timezone detection. And PHP 5.3+ is required.
Enjoy, and please complain about anything that’s stupid!
