momentjs-rails wraps the Moment.js library in a rails engine for simple use with the asset pipeline provided by Rails 3.1 and higher. The gem includes the development (non-minified) source for ease of exploration. The asset pipeline will minify in production.

Moment.js is "a lightweight javascript date library for parsing, manipulating, and formatting dates." Moment.js does not modify the native Date object. Rather, it creates a wrapper for it. Please see the documentation for details.


Add the following to your gemfile:

gem 'momentjs-rails'

Add the following directive to your Javascript manifest file (application.js):

//= require moment

If you want to include a localization file, also add the following directive:

//= require moment/<locale>.js


momentjs-rails == Moment.js 2.29.4

Every attempt is made to mirror the currently shipping Moment.js version number wherever possible. The major, minor, and patch version numbers will always represent the Moment.js version. Should a gem bug be discovered, a 4th version identifier will be added and incremented.
