A quick port of the useful aspects of Django's Humanize library.


This package is available in Packagist/Composer as gburtini/humanize-php.


  • naturaltime($timestamp, $depth=1) returns "5 minutes ago" type responses from timestamp. $depth indicates how many units we should break your timestamp in to.
  • apnumber($n) returns the "Associated Press style" number, $n, where numbers 1 thru 9 are returned as a word.
  • intcomma($n) comma-separates an integer, unlike Django, it does not respect format localization.
  • intword($n) returns the "word" for a given large number, for example, 1000000 becomes 1.0 million.
  • naturalday($timestamp, $format) returns "today", "yesterday" or "tomorrow" from a given $timestamp, alternatively returns the date in $format.
  • ordinal($n) converts an integer in to its ordinal string (1st, 2nd, ...)
  • checkize($n) converts a number in to its check (cheque) ready word form. 65535 becomes "sixty five thousand, five hundred and thirty five." not in Django
