The moment().min() method limits the moment to a minimum of another moment value. We can also say that m1.min(m2) is the same as m1 = moment.max(m1, m2). This method is the counterpart of moment.max() method.

Syntax:

moment().min(Moment|String|Number|Date|Array);

Parameters: This method can accept the following parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • Moment: This is a Moment object by which the moment one has to be limited.
  • String: This is a String value that is used for comparison.
  • Number: We can also pass a numeric value for comparison.
  • Date: This is a Date object by which the moment one has to be limited.
  • Array: This is the Array in which the moment objects are compared.

Return Value: This method returns the Moment object calculated after a comparison of the given parameters.

Note: 

  • This will not work in the normal Node.js program because it requires an external moment.js library to be installed globally or in the project directory.
  • This method is deprecated and it is recommended to use the moment.max() method instead.

Moment.js can be installed using the following command:

Installation of moment module:

npm install moment

The below examples will demonstrate the Moment.js moment().min() Method.

Example 1: In this example, we are comparing the current moment with the moment 15 days before the current date.

Javascript




const moment = require('moment');
  
let momentOne = moment();
let momentTwo = moment().subtract(15, 'days');
  
console.log(
`The two Moments are:
    ${momentOne}
    ${momentTwo}
`);
  
let finalMoment =
    momentOne.min(momentTwo);
console.log(
    "The calculated Moments from the above is:",
    finalMoment.toString()
)


Output:

The two Moments are:
    Mon Aug 29 2022 13:05:38 GMT+0530
    Sun Aug 14 2022 13:05:38 GMT+0530
The calculated Moments from the above is: 
    Mon Aug 29 2022 13:05:38 GMT+0530

Example 2: In this example, we are comparing dates, this method will return the maximum of both the dates.

Javascript




const moment = require('moment');
  
let momentOne = moment(new Date("01-01-2001"));
let momentTwo = moment(new Date("02-02-2002"));
  
console.log(
`The two Moments are:
    ${momentOne}
    ${momentTwo}
`);
  
let finalMoment =
    momentOne.min(momentTwo);
console.log(
    "The calculated Moments from the above is:",
    finalMoment.toString()
)


Output:

The two Moments are:
    Mon Jan 01 2001 00:00:00 GMT+0530
    Sat Feb 02 2002 00:00:00 GMT+0530
The calculated Moments from the above is: 
    Sat Feb 02 2002 00:00:00 GMT+0530

Example 3: In this example, we are comparing the array of moments,.

Javascript




const moment = require('moment');
  
let momentOne = moment();
let momentTwo = moment().subtract(15, 'days');
let momentThree = moment().add(15, 'days');
  
  
console.log(
`The three Moments are:
    ${momentOne}
    ${momentTwo}
    ${momentThree}
`);
  
let finalMoment =
    momentOne.min(momentTwo , momentThree);
console.log(
    "The calculated Moment from the above is:",
    finalMoment.toString()
)


Output:

The three Moments are:
    Mon Aug 29 2022 13:15:34 GMT+0530
    Sun Aug 14 2022 13:15:34 GMT+0530
    Tue Sep 13 2022 13:15:34 GMT+0530
The calculated Moment from the above is: 
    Mon Aug 29 2022 13:15:34 GMT+0530
