    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.

    While toLocaleString() isn't perfect, it does provide some rudimentary formatting, including timezone support. We still recommend using Moment or date-fns for most apps, but you can get away with toLocaleString() for some basic formatting.

    To use the Intl.RelativeTimeFormat, you need to calculate with dates. You can do it yourself, but I find date-fns one of the best modular JavaScript libraries to handle dates. So in this example, I will use that library.

    In this article, I'll look at application size with multiple methods imported from date-fns. In the previous benchmark attempt, I was only using 1 method from each library. date-fns, as the only one built with tree-shaking in mind, enjoyed an advantage in this comparison that it will not have in real-world applications.

    Yeah, as the other guys said, Moment is done with. The creators, and many others suggest using date-fns. I have no experience with it, but it's what came up a lot when I was searching for alternatives.
