Usage

js
import { useTimeAgo } from '@vueuse/core'

const timeAgo = useTimeAgo(new Date(2021, 0, 1))

Component Usage

This function also provides a renderless component version via the @vueuse/components package. Learn more about the usage.

vue
<template>
  <UseTimeAgo v-slot="{ timeAgo }" :time="new Date(2021, 0, 1)">
    Time Ago: {{ timeAgo }}
  </UseTimeAgo>
</template>

Non-Reactivity Usage

In case you don't need the reactivity, you can use the formatTimeAgo function to get the formatted string instead of a Ref.

js
import { formatTimeAgo } from '@vueuse/core'

const timeAgo = formatTimeAgo(new Date(2021, 0, 1)) // string
