Date-fns is a collection of individual modules, which allows for better tree-shaking and smaller bundle sizes. Fecha, on the other hand, is a single file with a lightweight codebase. In terms of size, Fecha is generally smaller than Date-fns.
Both libraries provide extensive date and time manipulation functionalities. Date-fns offers a wide range of utilities for formatting, parsing, and manipulating dates. Fecha focuses on providing simple and straightforward date formatting and parsing functions. If you need a comprehensive date utility library, Date-fns might be a better choice.
Date-fns is more modular and allows you to import only the specific functions you need, which helps with reducing bundle size. Fecha, on the other hand, is a single file with all functionalities included. If you prefer a more lightweight and straightforward approach, Fecha might be a suitable choice.
