Chrono: Natural Language Date Parser in JavaScript


If you want to parse natural language-based date string to date then Chrono might be a good choice for you.

With this library, you can parse date from various formats like this:

  • Yesterday
  • 2 days ago
  • 2 weeks from now
  • Remind me on Jun 10 4pm IST
  • ... Refer their README for more


npm i chrono-node


import * as chrono from 'chrono-node';
// If you prefer CommonJS 👇
// const chrono = require('chrono-node');

chrono.parseDate('Remind me on Jun 10 4pm IST') // 2023-06-10T10:30:00.000Z

Happy parsing date!
