Carbon – A simple PHP API extension for DateTime.

$carbon = new Carbon('first day of next week');

if ($carbon->isWeekend()) {
    echo 'Party!';

echo $carbon->addYear()->diffForHumans(); // 'in 1 year'

Carbon is just a class which is designed to be used instead of DateTime. Due to extending DateTime, all DateTime methods are available to users of Carbon. Additionally, it implements a __toString method, allowing users to put it in place of string representations of date and time as well.

Installation possible using Composer, of course:

composer require nesbot/carbon
