API Basejump: Timestamp microservice

User stories

  • I can pass a string as a parameter, and it will check to see whether that string contains either a unix timestamp or a natural language date (example: January 1, 2016)
  • If it does, it returns both the Unix timestamp and the natural language form of that date.
  • If it does not contain a date or Unix timestamp, it returns null for those properties.

Example usage:

https://mighty-everglades-46259.herokuapp.com/January%2010%202017

https://mighty-everglades-46259.herokuapp.com/1484006400

Example output:

{"unix":1484006400,"natural":"January 10, 2017"}
