README

epoch

Mentioned in Awesome Go Godoc Reference build codecov goreportcard

Contains primitives for marshaling/unmarshaling Unix timestamp/epoch to/from built-in time.Time type in JSON.

Seconds

Seconds since the Epoch(Unix time), e.g.:

  {"timestamp":1136239445}

Inherits built-in time.Time type, thus has all it methods, but has custom serializer and deserializer(converts integer into built-in time.Time and vice versa).

Usage Example

package main

import (
    "encoding/json"
    "fmt"

    "github.com/vtopc/epoch"
)

type Request struct {
    Timestamp epoch.Seconds `json:"timestamp"`
}

func main() {
    var v Request
    err := json.Unmarshal([]byte(`{"timestamp":1136239445}`), &v)
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }

    fmt.Printf("%+v\n", v)
    // Output: {Timestamp:2006-01-03 00:04:05 +0200 EET}

    // Also as epoch.Seconds inherits all time.Time's methods one can do next:
    fmt.Println(v.Timestamp.Year())
    // Output: 2006
    fmt.Println(v.Timestamp.UTC().String())
    // Output: 2006-01-02 22:04:05 +0000 UTC
}

Milliseconds

Same as epoch.Seconds, but for Epoch(Unix time) in milliseconds, e.g.:

  {"timestamp":1136239445999}

StrSeconds

Same as epoch.Seconds, but for strings, e.g.:

  {"timestamp":"1136239445"}

StrMilliseconds

Same as epoch.Milliseconds, but for strings, e.g.:

  {"timestamp":"1136239445999"}
