Thx for the blog post!

Did you compare date-fns with dayjs first and if yes, what were the arguments the go with dayjs?

Both libraries are slick. Just out of curiosity as I mostly use date-fns, I would be interested to hear your experience if you compared both.

My first idea was date-fns also. Never heard of dayjs.

I was curious and found this interesting comparison/GitHub repo called You-Dont-Need-Momentjs

That's a really great resource for comparison. I never came across this.

Thanks for sharing this.

Yes, initially we wanted to adopt date-fns but could not move in that direction as moment's code was everywhere and we didn't want to revamp all the logic which was using moment.

Whereas in dayjs, the differences in the API were very minimal which reduced the fiction to write dayjs code instead of moment.

date-fns is great but for faster optimization and least effort, we chose dayjs
