Format dates with date.js and moment.js. Uses date.js to parse human readable date phrases, and moment to format the rendered output. Should work with any Handlebars, Lo-Dash, underscore, or any template engine that allows helper functions to be registered. Also compatible with verb, assemble and Template.
