chronojshttps://github.com/wanasit/chronohttp://jsfiddle.net/TXX3Z

Supports additional parsers and refiners

  • Parsers:
    var christmasParser = new chrono.Parser();
    christmasParser.pattern = function () { return /Christmas/i } 
  • Refiners:
    var custom = new chrono.Chrono();
    custom.refiners.push(guessPMRefiner);
    // This will be parsed as PM.
    // > Tue Dec 16 2014 14:30:00 GMT-0600 (CST) 
    custom.parseDate("This is at 2.30");
  • Doesn't support recurring temporal or events extraction
  • JSON response
chrono.parseDate('Today');              // Mon Jul 18 2016 12:00:00 ...
chrono.casual.parseDate('Friday');      // Fri Jul 22 2016 12:00:00 ...
chrono.casual.parseDate('Jul 18 2016'); // Mon Jul 18 2016 12:00:00 ...

 

With custom parsers and refiners:

custom.parsers.push(christmasParser);
custom.parseDate("I'll arrive at 2.30AM on Christmas night") 
// Sun Dec 25 2016 02:30:00 GMT-0400 (EDT)
 
custom.refiners.push(guessPMRefiner);
custom.parseDate("This is at 2.30");
// Mon Jul 18 2016 14:30:00 GMT-0400 (EDT)

 

SUTime (Stanford Temporal Tagger)javahttp://nlp.stanford.edu/software/sutime.shtml 
  • Parses 'Today', 'this/next Friday', pattern parsing ('yyyy-dd-mm...')
  • Supports recurring temporal (every Friday, Mondays, ...)
  • Doesn't support events extraction. (i.e. it dumps your trash every Thursday but can't do the same during the World War II or the Great Depression)
  • XML response (Timex3 Tag)
  • (configurable) holidays / special days
  • Need a TIMEX3 to ISO time parser
  • every Friday
  • Thursdays
  • each year on christmas day
  • Friday afternoon
  • this coming Friday afternoon
  • next Friday afternoon
  • 1930s
  • from 1920s to 1930s
  • Christmas in 2014, MLK day in 2014, X-mas in 2014
  • three hundred sixty five days after tomorrow

MinorThird (CMU)javahttps://github.com/TeamCohen/MinorThird 
More like a collection of Java classes for storing text, annotating text, and (machine) learning to extract entities and categorize text. Need extra work to filter the extracted temporal entities from the rest.

UWTimejavahttps://lil.cs.washington.edu/uwtime/https://lil.cs.washington.edu/uwtime/Similar to SUTime but has far less accuracy on extracting temporal fields.
