    isRunning,
    start,

      <button onClick={() => {
        // Restarts to 5 minutes timer
        const time = new Date();
        time.setSeconds(time.getSeconds() + 300);
        restart(time)
      }}>Restart</button>
    </div>
  );
}

export default function App() {
  const time = new Date();

minutes number minutes value
hours number hours value
days number days value
isRunning boolean flag to indicate if timer is running or not
pause function function to be called to pause timer
start function function if called after pause the timer will continue based on original expiryTimestamp
resume function function if called after pause the timer will continue countdown from last paused state
restart function function to restart timer with new expiryTimestamp

useStopwatch - Demo

Example

import React from 'react';
import { useStopwatch } from 'react-timer-hook';

function MyStopwatch() {
  const {
    seconds,
    minutes,
    hours,
    days,
    isRunning,
    start,
    pause,
    reset,
  } = useStopwatch({ autoStart: true });


  return (
    <div style={{textAlign: 'center'}}>
      <h1>react-timer-hook</h1>
      <p>Stopwatch Demo</p>
      <div style={{fontSize: '100px'}}>
        <span>{days}</span>:<span>{hours}</span>:<span>{minutes}</span>:<span>{seconds}</span>
      </div>
      <p>{isRunning ? 'Running' : 'Not running'}</p>

      <MyStopwatch />
    </div>
  );
}

Settings

key Type Required Description
autoStart boolean No if set to true stopwatch will auto start
offsetTimestamp number No this will define the initial stopwatch offset example: const stopwatchOffset = new Date(); stopwatchOffset.setSeconds(stopwatchOffset.getSeconds() + 300); this will result in a 5 minutes offset and stopwatch will start from 0:0:5:0 instead of 0:0:0:0

Values

key Type Description
seconds number seconds value
minutes number minutes value
hours number hours value
days number days value
isRunning boolean flag to indicate if stopwatch is running or not
start function function to be called to start/resume stopwatch
