.Net Standard port of PrettyPrintNet


Human friendly, textual representations of TimeSpan and file size.


dotnet add package PrettyPrintNS



var t = new TimeSpan(hours: 3, minutes: 4, seconds: 0);

// Default is 1 unit, long representation, use units from days to seconds, round smallest unit down
t.ToPrettyString();                                             // "3 hours"

// 3 units requested, but seconds is zero and skipped
t.ToPrettyString(3);                                            // "3 hours and 4 minutes"

// Four different unit representations
t.ToPrettyString(2, UnitStringRepresentation.Long);             // "3 hours and 4 minutes"
t.ToPrettyString(2, UnitStringRepresentation.Short);            // "3 hrs 4 mins"
t.ToPrettyString(2, UnitStringRepresentation.CompactWithSpace); // "3h 4m"
t.ToPrettyString(2, UnitStringRepresentation.Compact);          // "3h4m"

// Three types of rounding of the smallest unit, defaulting to 'ToNearestOrUp'
// As an example, ToTimeRemainingString() uses IntegerRounding.Up to not
// show "0 seconds" remaining when there is 0.9 seconds remaining.
var t2 = new TimeSpan(hours: 3, minutes: 30, seconds: 0);
t2.ToPrettyString(1, lowestUnitRounding: IntegerRounding.Down);          // "3 hours"
t2.ToPrettyString(1, lowestUnitRounding: IntegerRounding.Up);            // "4 hours"
t2.ToPrettyString(1, lowestUnitRounding: IntegerRounding.ToNearestOrUp); // "4 hours"


This is helpful to avoid showing strings like "0 seconds remaining" or "9 seconds remaining" when it really is 9.999 seconds remaining. It basically just calls ToPrettyString() with IntegerRounding.Up.

TimeSpan.FromSeconds(  60.1).TotimeRemainingString(); // "1 minute and 1 second"
TimeSpan.FromSeconds(  60  ).TotimeRemainingString(); // "1 minute"
TimeSpan.FromSeconds(  59.9).TotimeRemainingString(); // "1 minute"
TimeSpan.FromSeconds(   1.1).TotimeRemainingString(); // "2 seconds"
TimeSpan.FromSeconds(   1  ).TotimeRemainingString(); // "1 second"
TimeSpan.FromSeconds(   0.1).TotimeRemainingString(); // "1 second"
TimeSpan.FromSeconds(   0  ).TotimeRemainingString(); // "0 seconds"
