Checking if two dates match with MomentJS

How to check if two dates are the same with the JavaScript libray MomentJS

thumbnail for Checking if two dates match with MomentJS

With MomentJS (JavaScript), you can check if two times are the same with the isSame method.

First, instantiate moment with the date you want to check:

const someDate = "2021-07-14";
const currMoment = moment(someDate);

Then use the isSame method:

const someDate = "2021-07-14";
const currMoment = moment(someDate);

const anotherDate = "2021-07-13";

const isSameDay = currMoment.isSame(anotherDate, "day") // false
const isSameMonth = currMoment.isSame(anotherDate, "month") // true

I use this heavily in my Dataview (Obsidian) queries for Obsidian.
