Converts UNIX timestamps to human-readable dates and vice versa.

Image from store Utime
Description from store Convert Unix Epoch timestamps to human readable dates (and dates to timestamps) quickly and easily with Utime. Report issues and submit suggestions on github (pull requests are also welcome!): https://github.com/billdami/utime FEATURES ---------------------------------------- * Quickly convert timestamps and dates as you type * Date values can be entered in almost any format (Examples: "January 1st, 2012", "1/1/12 12:00am", "Jan 1 2012 00:00:00", "Jan 1 2012 ", and "1-1-2012" will all be converted successfully) * Relative dates, such as "now", "today", "tomorrow" (and more) are recognized and converted into the appropriate timestamp (Thanks to the excellent DateJS library) * Add additional "input groups" in the pop-up window to convert and view multiple timestamp/date pairs at once * Keyboard shortcuts for quick interaction (view available shortcuts in the extension pop-up's Help page) * Convert timestamps/dates from Chrome's omnibox (address bar) by typing "ut" then pressing tab. * Convert timestamps/dates directly from a webpage via right-click * Conversions performed from the omnibox or right-click menu will be displayed in a chrome desktop notification with a button to copy the result to the clipboard AVAILABLE OPTIONS (Accessible from the extension's pop-up window) ---------------------------------------- * Input mode (determines which input boxes timestamps and dates are entered into, defaults to "Auto-detect") * Timestamp unit (seconds or milliseconds, defaults to seconds) * Timezone (defaults to the computer's local timezone) * Input date order (Used for parsing short format dates (i.e. "5.10.2012", "5-10-2012", "5/10/2012", ect.) as either month/day/year (western format) or day/month/year (european format)) * Date output format (defaults to MMMM dS, yyyy, aka "January 1st, 2014") * Time output format (defaults to h:mm tt, aka "12:00 AM") PRO TIPS! ---------------------------------------- * Press enter on an empty input field to display the current timestamp/date. * Use relative dates such as "now", "today", "tomorrow" or "last friday" * Add additional input groups to convert and view multiple timestamps and dates at once * Right click a selected timestamp or date in a webpage and select "Convert with Utime" * In Chrome's address bar, type "ut" then press tab and enter a date or timestamp to convert it CHANGELOG ---------------------------------------- v3.0.2 (January 29, 2015) * Improve auto detection of negative timestamp values v3.0.1 (July 30, 2014) * Fix for issue introduced by the latest version of Chrome that was causing the popup height to be incorrect upon opening v3.0.0 (March 14, 2014) * IMPORTANT NOTE: Users who updated from v2.0.6 will need to re-apply any custom settings, as the options have been reset (sorry!) * Complete overhaul of the popup user interface * New "input groups" feature that allows converting and viewing multiple values at once * Added keyboard shortcuts for navigating and interacting with the pop up interface * Added help page to pop up containing the shortcuts list and various tips * Invoking utime from the omnibox or context menu will now display the conversion result in a desktop notification, with an option to copy the value to your clipboard * New icon v2.0.6 * The input textbox's placeholder text will now change based on the input type that is selected v2.0.5 * Added a little padding to the extension's pop-up container as the ui controls were too close to the edges of the pop-up on OS X. v2.0.4 * Added another option to the Timezone select, "Local time (computer's timezone)", which will use whatever the computer's timezone is set to when performing conv. This option is selected by default when installing the extension. (Note: I added this due to the fact that manually setting your GMT offset has the pesky side effect of forcing you to change the offset whenever the selected timezone enters or leaves daylight savings time, or else the extension's output would be incorrect.) v2.0.3 * Added "Input Date Order" option * Fixed a bug causing the omnibox and context menu features not to respect changes made in the Options during the same browser session * Height of the extension pop-up now properly adjusts to fit the contents when changing tabs. v2.0.2 * Re-added and tweaked extensions's omnibox functionality from v1.x. Type "ut" in Chrome's Omnibox (location bar) and press Tab to start interacting with Utime. From here, you can enter a date or timestamp and then press Enter to get the converted value in a prompt dialog. * Updated the error text displayed when a value cannot be converted * Removed some unnecessary javascript assets from the extension's pop-up v2.0.1 * Added back the feature from v1.x where pressing Enter while the input box is empty (and either "Auto-detect" or "Date" is selected) will output the the timestamp for the current date and time (aka "now") * Added additional date output format options, "d.m.yyyy" and "m.d.yyyy", as well as two digit year variants for all the available shorthand date formats. v2.0 * Complete revamp of the extension, focused on increasing the ease of use, and allowing the user to better customize it to their needs through the additional options (base timezone, timestamp unit, ect.). v1.2.2 * Updated extension permissions (Removed several permissions that were unintentionally left in from a dev version, but are not needed). v1.2 * Added an Options page for the extension (accessible via either right clicking the extension icon and selecting "Options" or clicking the "gear" icon in the Utime pop-open window. * In Options you can now set an Hour offset (positive or negative) which will be applied to all conversion results. * Updated the Omnibox interface to the extension. Conversions done from the omnibox are now processed on-the-fly as you type and displayed directly in the suggestions dropdown box. Once you are finished typing a timestamp or date into the box, just hit the down arrow to select your desired conversion result. * Added Shortcut: Typing "ut [Tab] now" in the omnibox will now give you the current timestamp. v1.1.1 * Updated extension icon v1.1 * Textboxes in the pop-open dialog now allow keyboard shortcut commands (cut, copy, paste, ect.) * State of the pop-open window is now saved when closed and re-opened * Clicking "Convert" for either the timestamp field or human date fields in the pop-open dialog when the fields are empty will now use the current date.

Latest reviews

  • (2021-08-19) Vinu Dominic: a must have extension for every developer! absolutely awesome!!
  • (2021-04-02) Mathurshan V: Amazingly useful. Milli conversion is great. It also translates english to millis, "yesterday", "tomorrow", "now", "2 days ago", "2 days" (future). Can't recommend enough!
  • (2020-08-26) Cristiano Ascari: Nice extension.
  • (2020-04-04) Mohamad: There isn't output format like "Y-m-d H:i" or "Y/m/d, H:I"!
  • (2019-12-18) Jules Pike: Simple and flexible.
  • (2019-06-07) Asha Parveen Sk: best ever
  • (2019-04-18) Marshall Zobel: Very helpful, but does not autodetect the presence of milliseconds. This will throw off the conversion if milliseconds are present and isn't expecting them, or vice versa (missing milliseconds when the tool does expect them).
  • (2018-07-25) Mojtaba Vahdati: I like this extension, I've just given two stars to notify the creators on a small issue. Some Epoch formats support more precise time units, for example JavaScript gives this 1532531476427 in 25th July 2018 while UTime detects it as December 27th, 0533. I hope you support more formats soon. Thank you.
  • (2018-03-01) Wo Zii: great tool
  • (2017-10-11) Christine Gregory: Love this, I use it all the time. lightweight and quick

  • (2016-07-21) Thamaraiselvam T: useful
  • (2016-07-16) Akhil K.Venugopal: Really useful! The context menu option is a much needed feature as well! Great tool!
  • (2016-07-07) Alexander Astafurov: Very useful!
  • (2016-06-12) jerlandsson: Just what I needed! Amazing! Thanks a lot for this!
  • (2016-05-13) Michael Bannach: Perfect tool to convert timestamps! One additional feature would be great: Automatically check if timestamp is in milliseconds or seconds :-)
  • (2015-12-22) Zhang Xiaoting: It's a great extension!
  • (2015-11-24) Wang Xin: 十分方便,希望可以做成app模式,可以在浏览器外随便启动了
  • (2015-11-03) Rui Luo: light weight and can remember multiple input. Just what I was looking for!
  • (2015-08-04) vijay kumar: very usefull and handy
  • (2015-06-15) Paul Hayball: Super awesome! Until chrome omnibox can convert timestamps to date strings like it does with other units of measurement this is a big time saver.
  • (2015-06-15) Thomas Nichols: Extremely useful extension. Just one suggestion... On click of the clock icon when the little pane is active I think it should close and not re-open, like a toggle open / close...
  • (2015-06-05) Elderick Foo: It's a friken ad, I didn't even install it!
  • (2015-04-03) 罗哲: 好用 支持多种格式输入,即输即得
  • (2015-04-02) Vladyslav Poliakov: Very very good thx bro for perfect job
  • (2015-03-09) Tim Pum: useful
  • (2014-08-12) Andrey Melnik: It would be helpful to have an option to autodetect seconds/milliseconds
  • (2014-07-15) Sahil Dua: Poor! I needed an extension which could do conversions in same window where I am working!
  • (2014-05-28) Pavel Savchenko: Dang this is so useful! I'd give it 10 stars if I could!
  • (2014-05-26) Scott Fujan: Fantastic improvements. Great for handling unix timestamps
  • (2014-03-31) Andre Greeff: As I work quite a lot with SQLite databases where the developers have chosen to store all times and periods using Unix Epoch timestamps, this useful little extension has made my life a million times easier. The new UI that came with v3.0.0 finally prompted me to drop by and leave a proper rating. I highly recommend this extension to any Chrome user working with Unix timestamps.

  • (2017-12-11, v:3.0.3) Ondrej Žižka: Show time as tooltip on a selected text
    Hi, it would be nice if the value popped up on a selected text if it looks like a timestamp. Preferably immediately, just like Google Translate does. Thanks!
  • (2017-12-11, v:3.0.3) Ondrej Žižka: Support for milliseconds
    Hi! Could you please add support for milliseconds? I saw the earlier request for that. I am not sure how many people really need to convert 864000000 ms to something. But if there are some - could it be simply optional? The user could choose whether s/he needs ms more often or keep the functionality to convert weird relative amounts of time. I work with Java and all kind of APIs give milliseconds. Thanks!
  • (2017-06-22, v:3.0.3) Support fractional seconds
    Could you extend the converter to parse fractional seconds for unix time? I often get timestamps in the format "1498087422.79426" and this would save me some hassle.
  • (2016-09-28, v:3.0.3) Timezone
    Hi! What I would like to see is and extra date format that also shows the timezone... so for e.g. the full ISO 8601 formatting would be: 2016-09-28T08:25:48+00:00 Thank you for your work :) Best regards Alex
  • (2015-06-26, v:3.0.3) Brian J. Hodge: "Insert Unix Timestamp" Context Object
    It would be handy if, when I right click an input/textarea, the extension could provide a context item which would paste in the current timestamp as defined in the extension's settings. Thanks!
  • (2015-04-15, v:3.0.3) Ilmārs Kluss: Date parser
    I have a problem with parsing dates in such format as "+120 days" or "-120 days" this tool can handle only in range of -99 till +99 no meter is it a days or weeks
  • (2014-07-15, v:3.0.0) Matthijs van Schooten: Millisecond precision
    As requested before, please add an "auto" detection for second/milisecond timestamps. 10 chars would be second 13 chars would be mseconds Would be fantastic if you could add this!
  • (2014-02-18, v:2.0.7) Kirill Safonov: Plugin does not handle millisecond precision timestamps
    A millis-precision timestamp like "1392587931756" is converted as "May 9, 6099 21:02:36", while really it is "Sun, 16 Feb 2014 21:58:51 GMT".
  • (2012-10-15, v:2.0.6) Bill Dami: This is just a test
    This is a test. Disregard.
