Displaying Date Time with Reference to Time

Displaying Date Time with Reference to Time

There are lot of .NET helper assemblies that help you represent datetime in more readable formats, such as yesterday, 5 minutes ago, and so on. One of the libraries that I have used is Humanizer from GitHub.

For example, the following line of code will display 5 hours ago:

string text = DateTime.Now.AddHours(-5).Humanize();
