Simple high resolution timer for node
Wraps process.hrtime() in a simple to use interface. No need to multiply and divide to get desired measurement units.
Timer precision is a nanosecond.
Note: requires Node.js 4 or later.

Install

npm install --save clockit

Usage

const clockit = require('clockit');

var timer = clockit.start();
// ...
var ms = timer.ms; // time passed in milliseconds
var us = timer.us; // time passed in microseconds
var ns = timer.ns; // time passed in nanoseconds

Since time is measured in nanoseconds, ns returns an integer while us and ms return floating point numbers without rounding.
These timer properties return the elapsed time since the start() call. This means that two consecuritve reads of ns for example will return different values taking into account the time between the two calls.
