This would crate a backwards incompatibility for anyone using it and expecting the output in a certain format, unfortunately.

  • Component changed from Uncategorized to Template system
  • Resolution wontfix deleted

So, ok. Create two new filters called timeuntilsec and timesincesec because otherwise everybody needs to roll their own.

To paraphrase Einstein: A minute is a long time if your hand is in a fire. It's a very short time if you're talking to a pretty girl. It's all relative :-)

This isn't an area where we need a proliferation of template tags. To me, minute level granularity seems an appropriate level of precision for a wide range of applications, and the fact that this is the first (to my memory) request for this to be changed supports that assertion.

It's not a case of "everyone" needs to roll their own -- only people who want second-level granularity have to roll their own. I'm happy to put this in the basket of things requiring local customization.

Ok, I understand. For the future maybe a string format parameter to timeuntil so people can custom format the timedelta? Eg. |timeuntil:"%m minuten en %s seconden" ?
