#' Developer Tools for parsing date and date-time information
#'
#' These functions are designed to assist developers in extending the `modeltime`
#' package.
#'
#' @param data A data frame
#' @param period A period to calculate from the time index. Numeric values are returned as-is.
#'  "auto" guesses a numeric value from the index. A time-based phrase (e.g. "7 days") calculates
#'  the number of timestamps that typically occur within the time-based phrase.
#'
#' @return
#' - parse_index_from_data(): Returns a tibble containing the date or date-time column.
#' - parse_period_from_index(): Returns the numeric period from a tibble containing the index.
#'
