re: Formatting dates with JavaScript VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Great article. I appreciate the approach to formatting dates using vanilla Javascript and not reaching for a library right away. Dates in Javascript can be hard enough to deal with that reaching for a library is easy to do. This is a good reminder, not only for Dates but really anything we are coding, to look into seeing if we can build something on our own without the need for a library. Using a library should add real value to your project to ensure you are getting real benefits from it. I'm looking forward to your article on manipulating dates without a library. :)

 

Awesome, thanks for the feedback! I'm looking forward to writing the next article too :)
