Hi Friends 👋,

To get current time in moment js, just call moment().format() with "hh:mm:ss" time parameter format, it will return current time.

Just import moment in your file and invoke moment().format("hh:mm:ss").

moment().format("hh:mm:ss")

In the following example, we are going to do

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

let’s write the code.

import moment from "moment";

// create a function and console moment
function consoleTheMoment() {
  console.log(moment().format("hh:mm:ss"));
}

function App() {
  consoleTheMoment()
  return (
    <div>
        {/* moment in react render */}
      {moment().format("hh:mm:ss")}
    </div>
  );

export default App;

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