speeddating.vim is a Vim script that allows you to use CTRL-A/X to increment dates, times, and more.

Take the following date:

1999-12-31

Because Vim treats the hyphen as a negative sign, pressing CTRL-A on the 31 would normally increment it to

1999-12-30

Compare this with what happens when speeddating.vim is installed:

2000-01-01

Pressing 5 on the 03 in the first line below transforms it into the second:

Sat, 01 Jan 2000 00:00:03 +0000
Fri, 31 Dec 1999 23:59:58 +0000

Several date, time, and datetime formats are included. Additional formats can be defined in a strftime-like syntax with the :SpeedDatingFormat command.

Existing VIm semantics are preserved. CTRL-A and CTRL-X accept a count, and plain number incrementing is used if no date format is matched.

Use of CTRL-A/X in visual mode enables incrementing several lines at once. Blank spots are filled by incrementing the match from the previous line, allowing for creation of sequences (1, 2, 3; 2000-10-30, 2000-10-31, 2000-11-01).

Can also increment roman numerals and ordinals (1st, 2nd, 3rd, ...). In visual mode, letters of the alphabet are supported.

d sets the timestamp under the cursor to the current time. d does the same, but uses UTC rather than the local time.

Requirements:

· Vim

What's New in This Release:

· Basic timezone support.
· Formats like "Fri Mar 14" are smartly incremented, rather than assuming the year 2000.
· Fixed error when wrapping down that would result in things like 23:60:60.
