I have OL, GeoExt, gxp. I have a layer with Date attribute. So I want to show features with same date.

I found an example using gxp_playback, but it does not work because it can't find OpenLayer.TimeUnit.HOURS. I found some libraries that this example requires there but none contain OpenLayer.TimeUnit.

Am I searching for this in the wrong place? Or is this whole example bad and there is a simpler way to make timeline?

I found gxp_timeline in gxp docs but can't find any examples of how to use this.

@Sunil: Your example looks like what i want. I try to use it. Thanks. – Kliver Max May 7 '13 at 6:51

Please check timeline plugin on GitHub. I am sure it will help you.

It contains simple library to create a time related map with Open Layers. It supports cluster strategy (Open Layers.Strategy.Cluster) and time filtering.

Currently it supports source data in GeoJSON or GeoRSS format.

Can i use this library if i create layer from parametric view on Geoserver (date is parameter)? – Kliver Max May 7 '13 at 8:03
