    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: The library is 100% TypeScript with brand-new handcrafted types.
    • 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:
