date-fns v1.30.1

Modern JavaScript date utility library


Pinned: see a brief comparison with Moment.js.

date-fns provides the most comprehensive, yet simple and consistent toolset for manipulating JavaScript dates in a browser & Node.js.

date-fns is like lodash for dates. It has 140+ functions for all occasions.

dateFns.format(new Date(2014, 1, 11), 'MM/DD/YYYY')
//=> '02/11/2014'

var dates = [new Date(1995, 6, 2), new Date(1987, 1, 11), new Date(1989, 6, 10)]
//=> [
//   Wed Feb 11 1987 00:00:00,
//   Mon Jul 10 1989 00:00:00,
//   Sun Jul 02 1995 00:00:00
// ]

The library is available as an npm package, a Bower package. To install a package run:

npm install date-fns --save
# or with yarn
yarn add date-fns
# or with bower
bower install date-fns

Also, you can simply download the library from the releases page.
