I have recently set on a mission to learn more about APIs. I get some data from a external JSON API but have come a cross an issue that I need some help with.
I’ve defined my cars variable in my controller and set it to
def index @cars = HTTParty.get('... end
I am then looping through each car in my view with
<% @cars.each do |car| %> <%= car[“date”] %> <% end %>
The result in my view;
How can I change this format to instead say time_ago_in_words?
Thanks alot in advance!
This will do it.
distance_of_time_in_words_to_now(DateTime.parse(car['date'])) #=> "1 day, 8 hours, and 32 minutes"
