I can’t find a way to make it work with UNIX timestamps. Is it possible or did you cut off this feature?

Moment.js states you can do moment.unix(value).format("MM/DD/YYYY") but how can I do this with your filter?

I just ran into this same issue and did some digging and found a nice simple fix. As you mentioned,moment itself as a library supports unix timestamps with moment.unix(). I installed moment, imported it, and added a filter into my component to do Unix timestamps for me:

Vue component

filters: {
  formatUnix: function (value) {
    if (value) {
      return moment.unix(value).format('MM-DD-YYYY')

Usage in template - no parenthesis required

{{ someVar | formatUnix }}

This will take Unix epoch (timestamp) as input and give you back MM-DD-YYYY. I prefer filters to methods. If you haven’t written your own filters before, here are the docs

@Joeper214 install moment for the filter not vue-moment. npm install --save moment
