I was wondering if there's a way in Rails to calculate time stamp like - half a minute ago, 2 minute ago, 1 day ago etc. Something like twitter real time date stamp.
I want to know if Ruby/Rails has a built-in function for such date-time conversion?
You can use:
Or in your views you have the helpers:
distance_of_time_in_words(from_time, to_time) time_ago_in_words(from_time)
Check the API for details and more options.
