To change Moment.js config globally, you can set the configuration options using moment.updateLocale() or moment.defineLocale() methods. Here's how you can do it:

  1. Import Moment.js:
1
import moment from 'moment';


  1. Set the new configuration using moment.updateLocale() method:
 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
moment.updateLocale('en', {
   // Set your new config options here
   // For example, to change the default format for parsing and formatting dates:
   longDateFormat: {
      LT: 'h:mm:ss A',
      LTS: 'h:mm:ss A',
      L: 'YYYY-MM-DD',
      LL: 'D MMMM, YYYY',
      LLL: 'D MMMM, YYYY h:mm A',
      LLLL: 'dddd, D MMMM, YYYY h:mm A'
   }
});


  1. Now the new configuration options will be applied globally to all Moment.js instances in your application.


Note: The first argument in moment.updateLocale() is the locale identifier ('en' in this example). You can replace it with the appropriate locale identifier for your application.


Also, make sure to call this configuration code before using any Moment.js functionality within your application to ensure that the new configuration takes effect from the beginning.
