Luxon is a JavaScript library that provides a more powerful and modern alternative to the native Date and Time API. It offers easy-to-use classes and methods to handle complex time calculations, including parsing, formatting, comparing, and manipulating dates and times. Luxon is designed with internationalization in mind and can handle various timezone and calendar systems. It also provides a fluent and chainable API, which is both easy to read and write

Compared to native date and time APIs which can be challenging to use and easily lead to bugs, Luxon provides a more intuitive and less error-prone way of working with dates and times. Luxon also offers better performance thanks to its focused implementation and smaller codebase. Luxon is great for web apps that need to handle multiple time zones and for those that need advanced features like calendar calculations.
