We started with recommendations from the moment deprecation guide and tossed in some fan favorites to make sure we made the best choice we could. Keep in mind that there was a time constraint, so we couldn’t examine every option. Here’s the list we compiled:
moment – 327KB, but also needs moment-timezone (185KB)
- Total: 513KB
date-fns – 37.3 KB, but also needs date-fns-timezone (2KB), and all locales (26 KB)
- Total: ~64KB
- Eliminated due to lack of pre-built bundle. We need a single source of truth for IWA, and did not want to have to maintain a build process.
day.js – 2KB, but also needs the utc and timezone plugins (4KB), and all locales (26 KB)
- Total: ~32KB
spacetime – Zero Dependencies comment in the readme.
- Total: ~43KB
- luxon – 71KB, Everything is included, and it relies on the INTL api for locales.
*That’s it for now. *
