  • returns {Date}: Returns the date object for key

Example

console.log(store.get('foo') instanceof Date);
//=> true

Params

  • key {String}: The name of the stored date to get.

console.log(store.getRaw('foo') instanceof Date);
//=> false
 
console.log(store.get('foo') instanceof Date);
//=> true

Params

  • key {String}: The name of the stored date to get.
  • returns {Number}

Example

store.set('foo');
console.log(store.getTime('foo'));
//=> 1460378350000

Params

  • key {String}
  • returns {Boolean}

Example

store.set('foo');
console.log(store.has('foo'));
//=> true

Params

  • key {String|Array}: Property name or array of property names.
  • returns {Object}: Returns the instance for chaining.

Example

console.log(store.date('1 day from now'));
//=> Tue Apr 12 2016 10:05:12 GMT-0400 (EDT)

Params

  • timespan {String}: A human-readable string to pass to date.js
  • returns {Date}: JavaScript Date object

Example

console.log(store.date('1 day from now'));
//=> Tue Apr 12 2016 10:05:12 GMT-0400 (EDT)

Params

  • key {String}: The stored date to compare
  • timespan {String}: A human-readable string to pass to date.js
  • returns {Number}: The difference in seconds between the two dates, or NaN if invalid.

Example

console.log(store.diff('foo', '10 minutes ago'));
//=> 338563

Params

  • key {String}: The name of the stored date to set on .current
  • returns {Object}: Returns the instance for chaining.

Example

store.set('bar');
store.lastSaved('bar');
console.log(store.current);
//=> 1460378350000
console.log(store.lastSaved('bar').moreThan('31 minutes ago'));
//= false
console.log(store.lastSaved('bar').lessThan('31 minutes ago'));
//=> true

Params

  • key {String}: The name of the stored date to set on .current
  • returns {Object}: Returns the instance for chaining.

Example

store.set('bar');
 
console.log(store.lastSaved('bar').moreThan('31 minutes ago'));
//= false
console.log(store.lastSaved('bar').lessThan('1 minutes ago'));
//=> true

Params

  • key {String}: The name of the stored date to set on .current
  • returns {Object}: Returns the instance for chaining.

Example

store.set('bar');
 
console.log(store.lastSaved('bar').moreThan('31 minutes ago'));
//= false
console.log(store.lastSaved('bar').lessThan('1 minutes ago'));
//=> true

Params

  • timespan {String}: A human-readable string to pass to date.js
  • returns {Array}: Returns an array of keys

Example

var keys = store.filterSince('1 week ago');

.clear

Reset store.dates to an empty object.

  • returns {undefined}

Example

store.clear();

.json

Stringify the store. Takes the same arguments as JSON.stringify.

  • returns {string}

Example

console.log(store.json(null, 2));

.save

Calls .writeFile() to persist the store to the file system, after an optional debounce period. This method should probably not be called directly as it's used internally by other methods.

  • returns {undefined}

Example

store.save();

.dates

Getter/setter for the store.dates object, which holds the values that are persisted to the file system.

  • returns {object}

Example

console.log(store.dates); //=> {}
 
store.set('foo');
store.set('bar');
 
console.log(store.dates);
// { foo: 'Mon Apr 11 2016 08:39:10 GMT-0400 (EDT)',
//   bar: 'Mon Apr 11 2016 08:39:10 GMT-0400 (EDT)' }
