npm install time-ago-pipe --save


It can be imported into your angular project, as you would for any other library.

In the @NgModule you want to use it in

import {TimeAgoPipe} from 'time-ago-pipe';

add "TimeAgoPipe" to your declarations

	imports: [... etc ...],
	declarations: [..., TimeAgoPipe, ... ]

In your component templates you can just do:

<span>{{your_date | timeAgo}}</span>

where "your_date" is a local date string, which could be parsed by the standard Js Date()

If this value is null or not parsable as a date, then the pipe will display nothing
