format a date in to the format month day, year hour:minute:second.fff am/pm in typescript

To format a date in Typescript, one option is to use the Moment.js library.

First, install Moment.js via npm:

npm install moment
19 chars
2 lines

Then, import moment at the beginning of your file:

import moment from 'moment';
29 chars
2 lines

Assuming you have a date object named myDate, you can format it as desired using the format() function like this:

const formattedDate = moment(myDate).format('MMMM D, YYYY h:mm:ss.SSS A');
75 chars
2 lines

Here, the format string "MMMM D, YYYY h:mm:ss.SSS A" specifies the desired date format. Breakdown of the format string:

  • MMMM: full month name
  • D: day of the month
  • YYYY: four-digit year
  • h: hour (12-hour clock)
  • mm: minute
  • ss: second
  • SSS: millisecond
  • A: uppercase AM/PM

Note that the above code assumes your myDate object is of type Date. If it is a string or some other format, you may need to use Moment.js's parse() function to convert it to a Date object first.
