The timestamp component presents a date in the past with humanized phrasing in English: "10 minutes/hours/days/months ago".

Getting started

yarn add @hig/timestamp @hig/theme-context @hig/theme-data

Import the component

import Timestamp from '@hig/timestamp';

Basic usage

<Timestamp timestamp="2018-05-05T12:00:00.000Z" />


Use the className prop to pass in a css class name to the outermost container of the component. The class name will also pass down to most of the other styled elements within the component.
Timestamp also has a stylesheet prop that accepts a function wherein you can modify its styles. For instance
import Timestamp from '@hig/timestamp';

function YourComponent() {
  // ...
  const customStylesheet = (styles, props, themeData) => ({
    timestamp: {
      color: themeData["colorScheme.errorColor"]

  return (
    <Timestamp stylesheet={customStylesheet} timestamp="2018-05-05T12:00:00.000Z" />
