js-joda has a lightweight footprint, only 43 kB minified and compressed, no third party dependencies.
js-joda supports ECMAScript 5 browsers down to IE9.
js-joda is a port of the threeten backport, which is the base for JSR-310 implementation of the Java SE 8 java.time package. Threeten is inspired by Joda-Time, having similar concepts and the same author.
js-joda is robust and stable. We ported more then 1700 test-cases with a lots of test-permutations from the threetenbp project. We run the automated karma test-suite against Firefox, Chrome, Node and phantomjs.
Date object, providing syntactic sugar. The native
Date object always consist of a date, time and a timezone part. In contrast, js-joda is a standalone date and time implementation.
The API has a domain-driven design with classes for each of the different use cases, like
Period. For example,
LocalDate allows you to handle dates without times (like birthdays or holidays) in a clean and error-safe way, especially if these dates are persisted to an external server.
js-joda is immutable. Immutability aligns well with pure functions and with the architecture of frameworks like React and Flux.
LocalDate represents a date without a time and timezone in the ISO-8601 calendar system, such as 2007-12-24.
LocalTime represents a time without timezone in the ISO-8601 calendar system such as '11:55:00'.
LocalDateTime is a description of the date (LocalDate), as used for birthdays, combined with the local time (LocalTime) as seen on a wall clock.
ZonedDateTime is a date-time with a timezone in the ISO-8601 calendar system, such as 2007-12-24T16:15:30+01:00 UTC+01:00.
Instant is an instantaneous point on the time-line measured from the epoch of 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z in epoch-seconds and nanosecond-of-second.
Duration is a time-based amount of time, such as '34.5 seconds'.
Period is a date-based amount of time in the ISO-8601 calendar system, such as '2 years, 3 months and 4 days'.
Year represents a year in the ISO-8601 calendar system, such as '2016'.
YearMonth represents a year and a month in the ISO-8601 calendar system, such as '2016-01'.
Month represents a month-of-year in the ISO-8601 calendar system, such as 'July'.
MonthDay represents a month-day in the ISO-8601 calendar system, such as '--12-03'. Could be used to represent e.g. Birthdays.
DayOfWeek represents a day-of-week in the ISO-8601 calendar system, such as 'Tuesday'.
Install joda using npm
npm install js-joda
Then require it to any module
var LocalDate = require('js-joda').LocalDate; var d = LocalDate.parse('2012-12-24').atStartOfDay().plusMonths(2); // 2013-02-24T00:00:00
To use js-joda from a browser, download either
dist/js-joda.js (with sourcemaps for development). Then add it as a script tag to your page
<script src="js-joda.min.js"></script> <script> var LocalDate = JSJoda.LocalDate; var d = LocalDate.parse('2012-12-24').atStartOfDay().plusMonths(2); // 2013-02-24T00:00:00 </script>
Periodconverting to and from ISO8601.
ZonedDateTime(without support for loading iana timezone databases) currently supports only fixed offsets like UTC or UTC+02:00 and the system default time zone.

Joda-Timeis the base for JSR-310 that became part of Java SE 8 in the java.time package. JSR-310 is a new implementation with an API 'inspired by Joda-Time' but improves on some design flaws (see http://blog.joda.org/2009/11/why-jsr-310-isn-joda-time_4941.html)
