parse-loose-time
Sorry for yet-another-time-parser but after spending 30+ minutes looking through npm search results I decided to implement a solution that works for my use cases...
This library should support at least these time formats:
6
630
630p
6 30
6:30a
630am
6:30am
6:30 a.m.
12a
12 am
12:11am
12p
12 pm
12:11pm
2134
21:34
21.34
21 34
6 o clock
6 o'clock
6oclock
10 to 6
10 minutes to 6
10 past 11
10 minutes past 11 a.m.
quarter to 6
a quarter past 5
half past 5
midnight
noon

but will try to make it as loose as it makes sense (ie. ignore whitespaces and weird characters).
It returns an object with the properties hour and minute (24h format):
var parseTime = require('parse-loose-time');
parseTime('630p')
// > { hour: 18, minute: 30 }
