Relative Duration

danger

Relative durations are rather inaccurate for countdown/timer applications. Use precise duration for more accuracy and flexibility.

Usage

final yesterday = Moment.now() - const Duration(days: 1);
yesterday.fromNow(); // a day ago

final add5sec = Moment.now().add(const Duration(seconds: 5));
add5sec.fromNow(dropPrefixOrSuffix: true); // a few seconds

See abbreviation options

Threshold

Relative durations' output will follow the table below.

Threshold (up to)Text to be displayed

Thus,

final x = Moment.now() - const Duration(days: 547)
+ fromNow(); // a year ago
