Calendar Module : in x days give bad value



  • Hi!
    first, what a nice project this MagicMirror.

    I’m using the calendar module with two ical : facebook et garmin
    On display, the module gives the right informations about event for today or tomorrow

    But for an event in 2 days or more, it seem calculate a wrong value…

    For exemple (same problem with facebook and garmin calendar) :
    today is august 10.
    Birthday A : august 10 - shows today
    Birthday B : august 11 - shows tomorrow
    Birthday C : august 12 - shows in 1 day? Show display "in 2 days"
    Birthday D : august 14 - shows in 3 days? Show display “in 4 days”

    thanks
    Sébastien

    The calculations are correct for how a computer calculates it:

    Birthday A : august 10 - shows today
    Birthday B : august 11 - shows tomorrow
    Birthday C : august 12 - shows in 1 day? Show display "in 2 days"
    Birthday D : august 14 - shows in 3 days? Show display “in 4 days”
    

    Calculations are done starting at the next midnight. So:

    Birthday A : august 10 - shows today
        -- at the next midnight, it's day 0
    
    Birthday B : august 11 - shows tomorrow
        -- at midnight, it will be day 0 + 1, so 'in 1 day' or 'tomorrow'
    
    Birthday C : august 12 - shows in 1 day? Show display "in 2 days"
        -- at midnight, it will be day 0 + 2, so 'in 2 days'
    
    Birthday D : august 14 - shows in 3 days? Show display “in 4 days”
        -- at midnight, it will be day 0 + 4, so 'in 4 days'
    

    The way the calculations are done isn’t perfect, but it’s how Moment.js returns those values, based on midnight.
