angularjsHow can I use AngularJS and Moment.js together?

AngularJS and Moment.js can be used together to create powerful web applications. Moment.js is a JavaScript library for parsing, validating, manipulating, and formatting dates and times. AngularJS is a JavaScript framework used for creating single page applications.

The following example shows how to use AngularJS and Moment.js to format a date:

<div ng-app="myApp" ng-controller="myCtrl">
    <p>{{ date | date : 'MM/dd/yyyy' }}</p>

    var app = angular.module('myApp', []);
    app.controller('myCtrl', function($scope) {
        $scope.date = moment().format();

The output of the above code would be the current date in the format MM/dd/yyyy.

Code explanation

  1. <div ng-app="myApp" ng-controller="myCtrl"> - This defines the AngularJS application and controller.
  2. <p>{{ date | date : 'MM/dd/yyyy' }}</p> - This uses the AngularJS date filter to format the date.
  3. var app = angular.module('myApp', []); - This creates the AngularJS application.
  4. app.controller('myCtrl', function($scope) { - This creates the AngularJS controller.
  5. $scope.date = moment().format(); - This uses Moment.js to get the current date and assign it to the scope.
