How to get local time from UTC using Moment.JS


Moment.JS is a beautiful javascript library for parsing, validating, manipulating, and formatting dates. This is a must have utility library when it comes to manipulating timestamps and dates in javascript.

Here I will show how to get local time if you have a utc date time string.

Lets say you have a UTC date-time string as 2014-02-19 05:24:32 AM and you want to determine time in your timezone then use following code:
 moment.utc('2014-02-19 05:24:32 AM').toDate();

toDate() method gives javascript Date() object.

Below I have shared an example of how to use it. You can click on JavaScript link below to see the code.
