right-now stable #
Get the quickest, most high-resolution timestamp possible in node or the browser.
Instead of returning the date, right-now may use performance.now, Date.now, +new Date or process.hrtime to get a timestamp suitable for measuring intervals of time. Handy for both animation loops and precision benchmarking.
It's pretty small but saves me writing this boilerplate every time :)

Installation ##

npm install right-now

Usage ##

require('right-now')() ###

Returns a timestamp. In node, this uses process.hrtime. In the browser, support for the following is checked in this order:
  • performance.now()
  • Date.now()
  • +new Date
