Use the below installation command as per your package manager, moment support npm, Yarn, NuGet, spm, and meteor.

meteor add momentjs:moment  # meteor

Example in reactjs

In the following example, we are going to do

  1. import the moment package
  2. create a function and console moment
  3. use moment in react render.

let’s write the code.

import moment from "moment";

// create a function and console moment
function consoleTheMoment() {
  console.log(moment());
}

function App() {
  consoleTheMoment()
  return (
    <div>
        {/* moment in react render */}
      {moment().toString()}
    </div>
  );
}

export default App;

Note: *** If you want to use moment() in react render, you have to use the toString() method also to show details in HTML. ***

In the above program, we call moment() in a simple function and in react render method to get the current date time using moment.

let’s check the output.
