README

Collection of PHP classes to work with timespans.

It differs from DatePeriod in that it only defines a timespan/period by a start and end date. It offers algebraic methods to manipulate a timespan or a collection of them. Convert it to a DatePeriod passing a DateInterval to toPeriod() when you need to iterate over it.

Installation

$ composer require smhg/date-timespan

Methods

Timespan

use Timespan\Timespan;

$start = new DateTime('last monday');
$end = clone $start;
$end->modify('+1 week');

$timespan = new Timespan($start, $end);
contains(DateTime)

Returns whether the timespan contains a date.

overlaps(Timespan)

Returns whether the timespan overlaps with another timespan.

diff(Timespan)

Returns a collection of timespans (pieces of the original timespan) which do not appear in another timespan.

merge(Timespan)

Returns a collection with the merged timespan or both timespans when a merge was not possible.

trim(DateTime, DateTime)

Returns a new timespan fitting within the passed boundaries or null if no time remains.

compare(Timespan)

Returns whether the timespan occurs before, together or after another timespan.

toPeriod(DateInterval)

Converts the timespan to a DatePeriod using an interval.

__toString()

Converts the timespan to a string in ISO 8601 time interval format.

toArray()

Converts the timespan to an array with a single interval element containing the toString representation.

Collection

use Timespan\Timespan;
use Timespan\Collection;

$collection = new Collection();
$collection[] = new Timespan(...);
sort()

Sorts the collection based on the start of each timespan.

compress()
