Cool idea love the simple UI.

Couple of notes:

- The date picker is not super keyboard friendly, let me type to go faster than a select.

- You can save the event on some basic server and generate a uuid to share/edit them, that way i can link to my countdown.

Thanks for you feedback - I assumed date picker will be easier for user. Interesting to hear the other way around would be better.

When it comes to persistency - maybe I will add it some point, but no plans at this point

Hi there, my side project created to learn Svelte. To/Since date countdown timers. Private - data is saved in browser storage. No ads, no login, no nothing just time passing by.

What website did you get your imagery from? I’ve seen it before but I’ve lost the link!

Cool site too, bookmarked :)

The fact that it has the mm/dd/yyyy format makes me dislike the website

malczak said 8 months ago:

OK.. so give it a second try ;) formatting is now based on detected browser locale.

nanobyte109 said 8 months ago:


But it still shows the date as mm/dd/yyyy format on the top right of the event box.

BTW you dont need momentjs, you can use Intl.DateTimeFormat https://developer.mozilla.org/de/docs/Web/JavaScript/Referen...

My bad - bug fixed

Thanks for pointing me to Intl formatting - I will probably migrate in next iteration.

I fully understand this - localisation is on it's way.
