We got into various situations where we need to find the time elapsed from a DateTime or simply a timestamp . To find the solution for these kinds of situations we can use Time Ago Function in PHP. Our today’s tutorial is based on the implementation of time ago function in our program with a simple example.
Time Ago Function In PHP
Time Ago takes the timestamp as an input and subtract it with the current timestamp. Then it compares the remaining date with the predefined set of rules which determine the month, day, minute and even year. Then it calculates time difference by using the predefined set of rules which determine the second, minute, hour, day, month and year.
Let’s learn the functionality with a simple example
The following code will convert the timestamp to time ago like 1hour ago, 1day ago, 2days ago etc.
This is the PHP code which will convert the provided input into the elapsed time.
Now we have to call the function with the input
This is how we can simply find elapsed time between a time and current timestamp in form of hour, minutes, second etc.
Hope this will help our fellow developers.
