Issue #6982 duplicate

Please show actual date of commit

Roman T.
created an issue

Say its saying "5 day's ago" for recent commits what if i need the actual date and time of commit there's no way to check this.

If i email my developer saying i tested commit he made 5 days ago, and he checks email 2 days after he will have hard time understanding what commit meant.

I know there's commit id and name, but i find it easier to communicate based on exact day when commit was made.

Now i have to look in calendar to understand what was 5 day's ago.

I dont want to go back in git to find when commit was made, cant i do it on this website?

    Is there a way to choose to show the absolut commit timestamp in opposite to the relative to now "x days ago"? Most git clients nowadays allow it to do so, and it is way more convenient.

    It really shouldn't require a tooltip mouse roll over. When doing reporting, I have to move my mouse over the tooltip to get the date and time (unable to copy it) then type it in my reports manually. Ugh. It would be soooooo much better to just show the date and time instead of the "relative" date silliness. Or, heck... .show them both all the time. Please.

    if there is a strong user base who prefer the simplified version of "x days ago" please add a config option to switch between full display and simplified display. For many use cases the "x days ago" is simply of no use at all.

    +1 for actual date and time being the default. Can't figure out why the days-ago is ever preferable but if you feel strongly about it, make it a setting so folks can choose.

    I also agree this should be the case by default and you should not have to hover to see the date/time info. Here is some javascript that fixes it temporary if anyone wants to go further into developing some sort of browser plugin or bitbucket plugin:

    jQuery("time").each(function () { jQuery(this).html(jQuery(this).attr("title")); });

    Solved! - https://s.mail.ru/D9Fr/rUg1Ff8H4

    Flexible solution for Google Chrome and other browser where you can find plugin with name "Control Freak".

    link to webstore https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/control-freak/jgnchehlaggacipokckdlbdemfeohdhc

    1. setup plugin above
    2. click it - https://s.mail.ru/HAKX/jteUNPgnB - and choose "Этот сайт" ("This site") and paste this script:
    3. then choose "Библиотеки" (Libraries) and add jQuery plugin from CDN like this 
    works fine for me even if i change branch or use ajax controls on the page - result

    Sorry for "bad code", russian labels etc. =)

    Patrick Artounian Still works fine for me (Chrome browser 55.0.2883.87 m) with no errors and modifications in a long period of time. Maybe i was wrong when i said "...and other browser...". "minifying/compiling it online" is not a solution. Provide more info about errors you get, maybe i can help.

    The solution Stanislaw gave works. I will give the instructions in english

    1. Download the Control Freak plugin https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/control-freak/jgnchehlaggacipokckdlbdemfeohdhc

    2. Click your new gear icon (control freak icon)

    3. important click "This domain" - to apply this script you're adding to work on all of bitbucket. You could also apply it to the page only but when you are modifying the repo you must be at the page where you want to now see the converted dates (ex https://bitbucket.org/$username/$reponame/commits/all , otherwise just apply to the whole domain).

    4. Click the lib tab

    5. Select jQuery 2.1.0 (Google CDN)
    6. Click Save

    7. Download Stanislav's script (thank you comrade) : https://yadi.sk/i/O72YHW6RuK6wp

    8. Copy Paste the script into Control Freak's "Javascript" tab

    9. Click save

    10. Enjoy Dates and times

    Ubuntu 14.04 Google Chrome 56.0.2924.76

    I still +1 full date and time, as opposed to this workaround.

    Yes please, I end up going back to see last week's checkin for time management and I admittedly spend too much time trying to see what was "5 days ago". This is one of those features that you think looks nice but I believe your users do not like it! Please let us configure showing the date/time please!

    I found this thread while looking for a setting for this. I can't believe I need to do math in my head or roll my mouse over a field to find a commit from last week. This is silly.
