To parse and compare moment.js objects in React.js, you can use the moment library itself to create and manipulate moment objects, and then use its built-in methods for comparison.


Here is an example of how you can parse and compare moment.js objects in a React component:

 1

import React from 'react';
import moment from 'moment';

class DateComparison extends React.Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props);

    const date1 = moment('2021-10-10');
    const date2 = moment('2021-10-11');

    this.state = {
      date1,
      date2
    };
  }

  render() {
    const { date1, date2 } = this.state;

    const isDate1BeforeDate2 = date1.isBefore(date2);
    const daysDifference = date2.diff(date1, 'days');

    return (
      <div>
        <p>Date 1: {date1.toString()}</p>
        <p>Date 2: {date2.toString()}</p>
        <p>Is Date 1 before Date 2? {isDate1BeforeDate2.toString()}</p>
        <p>Days difference between Date 1 and Date 2: {daysDifference}</p>
      </div>
    );
  }
}

export default DateComparison;


In this example, we first create two moment objects representing two different dates. We then use the isBefore() and diff() methods of moment objects to compare the dates and calculate the difference in days between them.


By using these methods and other methods available in the moment library, you can easily parse and compare moment.js objects in a React.js component.
