How to install moment.js

Installing moment.js is easy and straightforward. All you need to do is to include the moment.js JavaScript file in your HTML page. This can be done in two ways:

1. By adding a <script> tag to your HTML page, pointing to the moment.js file you have downloaded:

<script type="text/javascript" src="moment.js"></script>

2. By using a Content Delivery Network (CDN) to host the moment.js file. This is the preferred way, as it eliminates the need to download and store the moment.js file on your server. A CDN is a network of servers distributed across multiple locations. By pointing your browsers to the CDN, they can access the moment.js file without having to download it. Simply add the following line to your HTML page:

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

Once the moment.js file is included, you can use the moment global object to access its methods. For example, to create a moment object representing the current date and time, you can use the following code:

var now = moment();

You can also use moment.js to parse and validate dates, format dates, manipulate and display them in different formats, calculate date and time durations, and much more. See the moment.js documentation for more details.
