theampm

With theampm, write Time like this in Ruby:

1.am
=> 2013-10-08 01:00:00 -0500

130.am
=> 2013-10-08 01:30:00 -0500

4.pm
=> 2013-10-08 16:00:00 -0500

925.pm
=> 2013-10-08 21:25:00 -0500

# There's also a to_time method
1515.to_time
=> 2013-10-08 15:15:00 -0500

This code is so simple I debated even creating a gem for it, but I find myself using it repeatedly for new projects, and now again for Draft, an app to help people write better.

Installation

  1. Add gem 'theampm' to your Gemfile.
  2. Run bundle install.
  3. Restart your server
