Unix Timestamp Tool

My top googled search terms are probably 'unix timestamp' or 'unix timestamp converter'.  Because I work a lot with time series data that is stored in integer timestamp format, I'm always using one of a couple of online tools for converting those timestamps back to a human readable form or going the other way, getting a timestamp from a date.

I get frustrated with these tools as they don't do what I want and most times I need to manipulate the timestamp further to get the timestamp of the start of an hour or minute interval so I decided to create my own tool - unixtime.ninja

I now keep my timestamp.ninja window almost permanently for converting my timestamps 😀
