merlinstardust / uses_of_moment.txt
Created August 9, 2017 21:53
Uses of Moment in Chart.js
docs/00-Getting-Started.md:Chart.js provides two different builds that are available for your use. The `Chart.js` and `Chart.min.js` files include Chart.js and the accompanying color parsing library. If this version is used and you require the use of the time axis, [Moment.js](http://momentjs.com/) will need to be included before Chart.js.
docs/02-Scales.md:parser | String or Function | - | If defined as a string, it is interpreted as a custom format to be used by moment to parse the date. If this is a function, it must return a moment.js object given the appropriate data value.
docs/02-Scales.md:tooltipFormat | String | '' | The moment js format string to use for the tooltip.
docs/02-Scales.md:When providing data for the time scale, Chart.js supports all of the formats that Moment.js accepts. See [Moment.js docs](http://momentjs.com/docs/#/parsing/) for details.
docs/02-Scales.md:The following display formats are used to configure how different time units are formed into strings for the axis tick marks. See
