React cannot render date from Mongo Collection

I was trying to render a date stored in Mongo (the typical new Date()), however React throws a hissy fit. I also tried to use to render it as I am also rendering raw html in some instances.



That is because the date that’s stored in Mongo is not a renderable string.
You’ll need the toString() method to render it.

If you’re working with dates a lot, be sure to try out moment?.
It’s an awesome date library for JS!

You need to convert it into a String or Number first. There’s a host of built in methods that give you different formatted outputs:
moment.js is great too

Ah I c, I was under the assumption it got stored as a string given its mixture of characters.
