You don't (may not) need Moment.js

Moment.js is a fantastic time & date library with lots of great features and utilities. However, if you are working on a performance sensitive web application, it might cause a huge performance overhead because of its complex APIs and large bundle size.

Large bundle size

Problems with Moment.js:

  • It is highly based on OOP APIs, which makes it fail to work with tree-shaking, thus leading to a huge bundle size and performance issues.
  • It is mutable due to OOP APIs and non-pure functions, which cause bugs: https://github.com/moment/moment/blob/develop/src/test/moment/add_subtract.js#L244-L286

If you are not using timezone but only a few simple functions from moment.js, this might bloat your app, and therefore is considered overkill. dayjs has a smaller core and has very similar APIs so it makes it very easy to migrate. date-fns enables tree-shaking and other benefits so that it works great with React, Sinon.js, and webpack, etc. See https://github.com/moment/moment/issues/2373 for more ideas on why and how people switch from moment.js to other solutions.

Voice of Developers

Removed moment.js to replace with date-fns - build output reduced by 40%

Jared Farago from webnode project.

Make use of native JavaScript object and array utilities before going big. Good library if you’re looking to replace Moment.js for one reason or another. Immutable too.

Dan Abramov, Author of Redux and co-author of Create React App. Building tools for humans.

I strongly recommend using date-fns over Moment.js, it's has a nicer API and you can include only parts you need!

Matija Marohnić, a design-savvy frontend developer from Croatia.

Just yesterday changed momentjs to this lib in out project. Cut the size of our js bundle almost in half 😱

Sergey Petushkov, a javaScript developer from Moscow, Russia • Currently in Berlin, Germany.
