vue-moment

Handy Moment.js filters for your Vue.js project.

Installation

Install via NPM and require the plugin like so:

Vue.use(require('vue-moment'));

Usage

Simply set moment as the filtering function and you're good to go. At least one argument is expected, which the filter assumes to be a format string if the argument doesn't match any of the other filtering methods.

<span>{{ someDate | moment("dddd, MMMM Do YYYY") }}</span>
<!-- or create a new date from 'now' -->
<span>{{ new Date() | moment("dddd, MMMM Do YYYY") }}</span>

Passing Your Date

Moment.js expects your input to be either: a valid ISO 8601 formatted string (see http://momentjs.com/docs/#/parsing/string/), a valid Date object, or a date string with an accompanying format pattern (i.e. when you know the format of the date input). For the latter, vue-moment allows you to pass your date and format pattern(s) as an array, like such:

<span>{{ [ someDate, "MM.DD.YY" ] | moment("dddd, MMMM Do YYYY") }}</span>
<!-- or when you want to parse against more than one pattern -->
<span>{{ [ someDate, ["MM.DD.YY", "MM-DD-YY", "MM-DD-YYYY"] ] | moment("dddd, MMMM Do YYYY") }}</span>

Filtering Methods

format (default)

This is the default filtering option. Formats the date against a string of tokens. See http://momentjs.com/docs/#/displaying/format/ for a list of tokens and examples.

Default

<span>{{ someDate | moment("YYYY") }}</span>
<!-- e.g. "2010" -->
<span>{{ someDate | moment("ddd, hA") }}</span>
<!-- e.g. "Sun, 3PM" -->
<span>{{ someDate | moment("dddd, MMMM Do YYYY, h:mm:ss a") }}</span>
<!-- e.g. "Sunday, February 14th 2010, 3:25:50 pm" -->

For more information about moment#format, check out http://momentjs.com/docs/#/displaying/format/.

from

Display a moment in relative time, either from now or from a specified date.

Default (calculates from current time)

<span>{{ someDate | moment("from", "now") }}</span>
<!-- or shorthanded -->
<span>{{ someDate | moment("from") }}</span>

With a reference time given

<span>{{ someDate | moment("from", "Jan. 11th, 1985") }}</span>

With suffix hidden (e.g. '4 days ago' -> '4 days')

<span>{{ someDate | moment("from", "now", true) }}</span>
<!-- or -->
<span>{{ someDate | moment("from", true) }}</span>
<!-- or with a reference time -->
<span>{{ someDate | moment("from", "Jan. 11th, 2000", true) }}</span>

For more information about moment#fromNow and moment#from, check out http://momentjs.com/docs/#/displaying/fromnow/ and http://momentjs.com/docs/#/displaying/from/.

calendar

Formats a date with different strings depending on how close to a certain date (today by default) the date is.

Default (calculates from current time)

<span>{{ someDate | moment("calendar") }}</span>
<!-- e.g. "Last Monday 2:30 AM" -->

With a reference time given

<span>{{ someDate | moment("calendar", "July 10 2011") }}</span>
<!-- e.g. "7/10/2011" -->

For more information about moment#calendar, check out http://momentjs.com/docs/#/displaying/calendar-time/.

add

Mutates the original moment by adding time.

<span>{{ someDate | moment("add", "7 days") }}</span>
<!-- or with multiple keys -->
<span>{{ someDate | moment("add", "1 year, 3 months, 30 weeks, 10 days") }}</span>

For more information about moment#add, check out http://momentjs.com/docs/#/manipulating/add/.

subtract

Works the same as add, but mutates the original moment by subtracting time.

<span>{{ someDate | moment("subtract", "3 hours") }}</span>

For more information about moment#subtract, check out http://momentjs.com/docs/#/manipulating/subtract/.

Chaining

There's some built-in (and not thoroughly tested) support for chaining, like so:

<span>{{ someDate | moment("add", "2 years, 8 days", "subtract", "3 hours", "ddd, hA") }}</span>

This would add 2 years and 8 months to the date, then subtract 3 hours, then format the resulting date.

Configuration

vue-moment should respect any global Moment customizations, including i18n locales. For more info, check out http://momentjs.com/docs/#/customization/.

You can also pass a custom Moment object through with the plugin options. This technique is especially useful for overcoming the browserify locale bug demonstrated in the docs http://momentjs.com/docs/#/use-it/browserify/

const moment = require('moment')
require('moment/locale/es')

Vue.use(require('vue-moment'), {
    moment
})

console.log(Vue.moment().locale()) //es
