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

1npm install moment --save # npm
2yarn add moment # Yarn
3Install-Package Moment.js # NuGet
4spm install moment --save # spm
5meteor 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.

1import moment from "moment";
2
3// create a function and console moment
4function consoleTheMoment() {
5 console.log(moment());
6}
7
8function App() {
9 consoleTheMoment()
10 return (
11 <div>
12 {/* moment in react render */}
13 {moment().toString()}
14 </div>
15 );
16}
17
18export 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.
