    About Backbone-moment

    This plugin modifies Backbone.Model adding a convenient getter/setter for date attributes using moment.js

    var myModel = new Backbone.Model();
    var fooDate = moment('1997-1-1');
    myModel.setMoment('fooDate', fooDate, { silent: true });
    myModel.get('fooDate'); // returns "1997-01-01T06:00:00+00:00"
    moment.isMoment(myModel.getMoment('fooDate')); // is true
    // [http://momentjs.com/docs/#/query/is-same/](http://momentjs.com/docs/#/query/is-same/)
    myModel.getMoment('fooDate').isSame(fooDate); // is true

    Additionally you can use the shorthand moment for getting and setting

    var fooDate = moment('1997-1-1');
    myModel.moment('fooDate', fooDate, { silent: true });
    myModel.moment('fooDate').isSame(fooDate); // is true

    You can clear a moment by setting undefined, null, or ````

    myModel.moment('fooDate', undefined);
    myModel.moment('fooDate'); // returns undefined

    Backbone.__moment is a reference to moment. If you have a modified or specially loaded moment, you will need to shim in a copy.

    Backbone.__moment = require('my-moment');

    By default backbone-moment stores dates as UTC strings Override Backbone.Model.formatMoment if you need to change this behavior

    var MyModel = Backbone.Model.extend({
      formatMoment: function(attr, date){
        return Backbone.__moment(date).utc().format();
