About

Datejs is an open-source JavaScript Date Library.

Comprehensive, yet simple, stealthy and fast. Datejs has passed all trials and is ready to strike. Datejs doesn’t just parse strings, it slices them cleanly in two.

Datejs is released under the MIT License and available for download at GoogleCode.

Please be sure to check out "Getting Started with Datejs".
