You don't (may not) need Moment.js

Join the community on Spectrum

Moment.js is a fantastic time & date library with lots of great features and utilities. However, if you are working on a performance sensitive web application, it might cause a huge performance overhead because of its complex APIs and large bundle size.

Large bundle size

Problems with Moment.js:

If you are not using timezone but only a few simple functions from moment.js, this might bloat your app, and therefore is considered overkill. dayjs has a smaller core and has very similar APIs so it makes it very easy to migrate. date-fns enables tree-shaking and other benefits so that it works great with React, Sinon.js, and webpack, etc. See https://github.com/moment/moment/issues/2373 for more ideas on why and how people switch from moment.js to other solutions.

Brief Comparison

Name Size original/gzipped Tree-shaking Popularity (stars) Methods richness Pattern Timezone Support Locale
Moment.js 329K/69.6K No 43.4k High OO Good (moment-timezone) 123
Luxon 59.9K/17.2K No 9k High OO Good (Intl) -
date-fns 78.4k/13.4k without tree-shaking Yes 21.3k High Functional Good (date-fns-tz) 64
dayjs 6.5k/2.6k without plugins No 25.8k High OO Not yet 130

Voice of Developers

Removed moment.js to replace with date-fns - build output reduced by 40%

—Jared Farago from webnode project.

Good library if you’re looking to replace Moment.js for one reason or another. Immutable too.

—Dan Abramov, Author of Redux and co-author of Create React App. Building tools for humans.

I strongly recommend using date-fns over Moment.js, it's has a nicer API and you can include only parts you need!

—Matija Marohnić, a design-savvy frontend developer from Croatia.

Just yesterday changed momentjs to this lib in out project. Cut the size of our js bundle almost in half 😱

—Sergey Petushkov, a javaScript developer from Moscow, Russia • Currently in Berlin, Germany.

ESLint Plugin

NPM Version Downloads Build Status Coverage Status Dependency Status

If you're using ESLint, you can install a plugin that will help you identify places in your codebase where you don't (may not) need Moment.js.

Install the plugin...

npm install --save-dev eslint-plugin-you-dont-need-momentjs

...then update your config

"extends" : ["plugin:you-dont-need-momentjs/recommended"],
