Rust library for parsing English time expressions into start and end timestamps

This takes English expressions and returns a time range which ideally matches the expression. You might use this for registering the temporal extent of an event, say, or finding lines in a log file.

Some expressions it can handle:

  • from now to eternity
  • today
  • tomorrow
  • last month
  • this year
  • 5/6/69
  • June 6, 2010
  • forever
  • 3:00 AM
  • 3AM
  • June '05
  • Monday through next Thursday
  • from mon at 15:00:05 to now
  • 1960-05-06
  • 5000BCE
  • next weekend
  • 2000
  • the nineteenth of March 1810
  • the 5th of November
  • the ides of March
  • the first

  • noon on May 6, 1969
  • midnight on May 6, 1969
  • Friday the 13th
  • 2 weeks ago
