helper-moment NPM version NPM monthly downloads NPM total downloads Linux Build Status

Template helper for formatting dates with moment.js. Works with Handlebars, Lo-Dash or any template engine that supports helper functions.

Install

Install globally with npm

$ npm install --global helper-moment

Usage

The main export is a function that can be called directly:

var moment = require('helper-moment');
console.log(moment());
//=> 'January 02, 2017'

Examples

With Handlebars:

{{moment "YYYY"}}
//=> 2017

Usage with assemble

(This example also works for verb, update, generate, or any other lib based on the templates library)

Register the helper for use with any template engine

var templates = require('templates');
var app = templates();
 
app.helper('moment', require('helper-moment'));
 
app.task('default', function() {
  app.src('templates/*.md')
    .pipe(app.dest('dist'));
});

Helper usage

Delimiters depend on the engine registered. For example, with Lo-Dash or Underscore templates:

<%= moment("YYYY") %>
//=> 2017

Or with Verb, which uses special delimiters to avoid delimiter collision when the documentation itself includes templates that should not render (like these docs):

{%= moment("YYYY") %}
//=> 2017

Usage with handlebars

To use the helper directly with handlebars:

var handlebars = require('handlebars');
handlebars.registerHelper('moment', require('helper-moment'));

Template examples:

{{moment date "YYYY"}}
{{moment date "MM"}}
{{moment date endOf="week" format="dddd, DD MMMM YYYY HH:mm:ss ZZ"}}
{{moment date format="dddd"}}-{{moment date add=daysadd format="dddd"}}
{{moment date format="dddd, DD MMMM YYYY HH:mm:ss ZZ"}}
{{moment date format="HH:mm:ss"}}
{{moment date isValid=true}}
{{moment date lang="fr" format="dddd, DD MMMM YYYY HH:mm:ss ZZ"}}
{{moment date lang="fr" format="MMMM"}}
{{moment date startOf="month" format="dddd, DD MMMM YYYY HH:mm:ss ZZ"}}
{{moment date subtract=fiveyearsago format="YYYY"}}-{{moment date format="YYYY"}}
{{moment date utc=null format="dddd, DD MMMM YYYY HH:mm:ss ZZ"}}
{{moment format="MMMM YYYY"}}
{{moment daysInMonth=true}}
{{moment diff=date}}
{{moment endOf="week" fromNow=true}}
{{moment date format="HH:mm:ss"}}
{{moment from=date}}
{{moment unixtimestamp format="HH:mm:ss"}}
{{moment}}

Usage with lodash or underscore

Use directly with Lo-Dash or underscore:

var moment =  require('helper-moment');
 
// as a mixin
_.mixin({moment: moment});
_.template('<%= _.moment("YYYY") %>');
//=> '2017'
 
// or pass the helper on the context
_.template('<%= moment("YYYY") %>')({moment: moment});
//=> '2017'
