Basic usage of Moment.js in Meteor:

There are many functions and features available in Moment.js that you can use in your Meteor projects. Here are a few examples of some common tasks that you can accomplish with Moment.js:

  • Formatting dates: You can use the format() function to specify how you want your dates to be displayed. For example, you can use moment().format('YYYY-MM-DD') to display the current date in the YYYY-MM-DD format.

  • Calculating time intervals: You can use the diff() function to calculate the difference between two dates. For example, you can use moment().diff(some other date, 'days') to calculate the number of days between the current date and some other date.

  • Comparing dates: You can use the isBefore() and isAfter() functions to compare two dates and determine which one comes first or last. For example, you can use moment().isBefore(some other date) to check if the current date is before some other date.

Advanced features of Moment.js:

In addition to the basic functions and features that we covered above, Moment.js also offers advanced features such as localization, timezone support, and duration calculations.
