Datejs is here

November 19th, 2007 | News

Datejs PreviewWe’re very pleased to announce that Datejs has arrived. KaBoom!

So, what is Datejs?

Datejs is an open-source JavaScript Date library.

For a long time, dates have been ignored in the world of JavaScript. Datejs is now the ultimate JavaScript warrior for not only parsing, but formatting and processing as well.

Datejs is comprehensive, yet simple, stealthy and fast.

Date objects need no longer be feared, for when they least expect it, Datejs shall silently leap from the shadows of the web and drive a katana of logic deep into the their heats, rendering them instantly and thoroughly, parsed.

Download the library to get started.

  4. The function name “forth” is spelled incorrectly. It should be “fourth”.

  5. Hey developers,
    is there a way to enable dynamic runtime configuration of cultures? Exmple, toggling between en-US or en-GB without having to manually include the relevant date-en-US.js as a script tag reference?
