    Epoch Converter

    I thought that was the simplest / most straightforward / most obvious way; but I can see now how it gets confusing. How is this proposal, then? ts displays current epoch timestamp displays current human-readable time ts <epoch timestamp> displays only the converted human-readable time ts <human-readable time> displays only the converted epoch timestamp How should I handle the clipboard in that case? Should the clipboard conversions display only when people type ts without parameter? Thanks for thinking about this with me!

    It does not. There are two distinct timestamps involved in this timestamp: 1543323061042 that is 2018-11-27 13:51:01.42 in my timezone, or 2018-11-27 12:51:01.42 UTC these are the first 2 options displayed, converting the timestamp that is passed as a parameter to the ts workflow 1543323096449 that is 2018-11-27 13:51:36.449 in my timezone, or 2018-11-27 12:51:36.449 UTC these are the following 4 options displayed, completely unrelated to the timestamp that is passed as a parameter I understand how it can be confusing, because I took the screenshot only 35 seconds after having copied the timestamp used as an example... Hopefully the various GIFs in the current README are clearer than this single screenshot? Let me know if I should clarify anything.

    In the output, the first 2 lines with a CLOCK_ICON are the human-readable conversions of the timestamp parameter, in local and UTC times. The other 4 lines are the "current time" as an epoch timestamp in multiple precisions. Does that make sense? Maybe this GIF helps illustrate:

    I have just released the version 1.0.0 on GitHub. Packal is taking a bit longer to show the latest version. The two main additions are: support converting a timestamp from the clipboard; support converting the other way (from human-readable to epoch timestamp). I would love to hear feedback / suggestions / etc.

    Unable to find a workflow that did just what I need, I finally bit the bullet and created my own. It is released on Packal and GitHub. It does 2 things: typing ts without any argument, it will display the current timestamp with different levels of precision; typing ts with a timestamp as an argument, it will display that timestamp in human-readable format, in both local and UTC timezones. Any resulting value can be selected with enter, to copy it in the clipboard. Let me know what you think: is this useful to anyone? is there anything missing? did I make a rookie mistake?
