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

It's like Lodash for dates

  • It has 200+ functions for all occasions.
  • Modular: Pick what you need. Works with webpack, Browserify, or Rollup and also supports tree-shaking.
  • Native dates: Uses existing native type. It doesn't extend core objects for safety's sake.
  • Immutable & Pure: Built using pure functions and always returns a new date instance.
  • TypeScript & Flow: Supports both Flow and TypeScript
  • I18n: Dozens of locales. Include only what you need.
  • and many more benefits
import { compareAsc, format } from 'date-fns'

format(new Date(2014, 1, 11), 'yyyy-MM-dd') //=> '2014-02-11'

const dates = [ new Date(1995, 6, 2), new Date(1987, 1, 11), new Date(1989, 6, 10), ] dates.sort(compareAsc) //=> [ // 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. To install the package run:

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