To properly use Moment.js inside of Pug, you can include the Moment.js library in your project and then use it within your Pug templates. Here is an example of how you can use Moment.js inside of a Pug template:

  1. First, include Moment.js in your project. You can include Moment.js by downloading the library from their website or by using a package manager like npm.
  2. Next, include Moment.js in your Pug template. You can include the script tag for Moment.js in your Pug file like this:
1
script(src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/moment.js/2.29.1/moment.min.js")


  1. Now that Moment.js is included in your Pug file, you can use it to format and manipulate dates as needed. For example, you can use Moment.js to format a date like this:
1
p The current date is: #{moment().format('MMMM Do YYYY, h:mm:ss a')}


This will display the current date and time in the specified format.

  1. You can also use Moment.js to manipulate dates, such as adding or subtracting days, hours, or minutes. Here is an example of how you can add days to the current date:
1
p Next week's date is: #{moment().add(7, 'days').format('MMMM Do YYYY')}


This will display the date that is one week from the current date.


By following these steps, you can properly use Moment.js inside of Pug for formatting and manipulating dates in your templates.
