““Meteor - tsega/meteor-bootstrap3-datetimepicker TypeError: locale() locale it is not loaded from moment locales!“

The console log retun this error

tsega/meteor-bootstrap3-datetimepicker TypeError: locale() locale it is
not loaded from moment locales!


I'm using meteor with this version Meteor 1.4.1.1 with the tsega:bootstrap3-datetimepicker v4.17.37_1 and momentjs:moment v2.14.4 packages.

As per the example I have the following code to initialize the date time picker:

Template.nuovoCantiere.onRendered( () => {
$( '.datetimepicker' ).datetimepicker({
timeZone: 'Europe/Rome',
format: 'D/MM/YYYY',
locale: 'it'
});
});


I read that the moment.js packages has been flagged as not working:


"Flagged Package
This package has been flagged as not working by the community. Use at your own risk."


So I tried to use the NPM version of moment.js:

var moment = require('moment');
require('moment/locale/it');

Template.nuovoCantiere.onRendered( () => {
$( '.datetimepicker' ).datetimepicker({
timeZone: 'Europe/Rome',
format: 'D/MM/YYYY',
locale: 'it'
});
});


but the console returns the same error

TypeError: locale() locale it is not loaded from moment locales!

Answer

I've passed by the very same situation. And it has honestly a very simple solution concerning Meteor development:

  1. $ meteor add rzymek:moment
  2. $ meteor add rzymek:moment-locale-it

Restart your app and that's it. There's no need to reference a node-module (i.e var moment = require('moment');) and stuff.
