    The visual rendering is done by Phaser. I have a working version using Pixi as well, but went with Phaser for arbitrary reasons. https://phaser.io/ https://pixijs.com/

    So I'm still decided to learn Unity and do a project with it. However, my C# knowledge is close to nil 😛. I've known about Phaser for a few years now, and stayed away from it for multiple reasons, the main one being that there really isn't a big community, compared to other engines like Unity or Godot. But currently, it's almost fully compatible with Typescript, which in my head, is acting like a stepping stone to C#. So I went it it.

  • React/Webpack: From MB to KB. How we solved our bundling problem
    dev.to | 2021-10-20
    Second step was removing the “heavy” libraries, it was easy removing Moment.js, Bluebird. We replaced the first with date-fns and Bluebird with native promises. Lodash unfortunately because of time constraints we could not refactor into moving out from some “handy” utilities it provides but we are planning to.
  • Any bad experience with libraries such as date-fns.js or sugar.js (instead of moment.js) with Netsuite SuiteScript 2.X? (xposted from /r/Netsuite)
    I've been meaning to use moment.js for a long time in Netsuite but instead always jimmied around with native javascript date functions. Finally getting around to doing some basic functions with moment.js in a couple of solutions, but non-Netsuite developers are telling me date-fns.js is more intuitive and lightweight than moment.js. Also there are other libraries like sugar.js with functions like "Date.create('last week Friday');" which look like it would be fun to use with N/query or N/search.
  • Build Instructions for your own WSB 3000
    The clock is in Javascript. Time zones in JavaScript historically are non-trivial since everything is based on the client clocktime. Fortunately, there is moment.js and moment-timezone-with-data.js that vastly simplify getting the current time at the NYSE. The clock keeps ticking correctly irregardless of which tab is active. I find the clock to be also functional since the WSBoy is worn over where I would usually be wearing my watch.

    To test if ISR is working, you can put some dates on the page. One is returned from getStaticProps at build time, and the other is returned when the page is loaded. I've used moment to format the dates to time. Your page will look something like this:

    dev.to | 2021-08-25
    For dates Moment.js was a powerful player. They made it easier to format, calculate and do all other things with dates. Formatting dates were only doable by using a JavaScript library. But it was an extensive library.

  • What is the size impact of importing Day.js
    dev.to | 2021-08-02
    Day.js is an interesting library that implements a similar API as moment.js but with a smaller overhead. Because it's implementing the same fluent interface, tree-shaking is not possible with it, but the library looks promising size-wise anyway.

What are some alternatives?

When comparing Phaser and moment you can also consider the following projects:

dayjs - ⏰ Day.js 2kB immutable date-time library alternative to Moment.js with the same modern API

dateformat - A node.js package for Steven Levithan's excellent dateFormat() function.

moment-timezone - Timezone support for moment.js

date-fns - ⏳ Modern JavaScript date utility library ⌛️

timeago.js - :clock8: :hourglass: timeago.js is a tiny(2.0 kb) library used to format date with `*** time ago` statement.
