  • What's this?
to_i() public

Returns the number of seconds that this Duration represents.

1.minute.to_i   # => 60
1.hour.to_i     # => 3600
1.day.to_i      # => 86400

Note that this conversion makes some assumptions about the duration of some periods, e.g. months are always 30 days and years are 365.25 days:

# equivalent to 30.days.to_i
1.month.to_i    # => 2592000

# equivalent to 365.25.days.to_i
1.year.to_i     # => 31557600

In such cases, Ruby’s core Date and Time should be used for precision date and time arithmetic.
