In the last tip, I showed you the fundamentals of moment.js, and I hope that got you started. This tip will show you some more basics and hopefully increase your interest in the moment.js plugin.
Sometimes you need to be able to do something at a specific time. In my first example, I show you a way to do that using the “set” function that moment.js provides. My example defines a simple clock that updates every 1 second, and I want to something different every 15 seconds, in this case change the background color in a <div> box.

As you expand this into many different systems and start adding in Linux machines, which have the same compliance rules, and then add in your Windows machines with the same compliance rules, you quickly understand the tremendous scope you are managing, even in a small configuration with a few dozen systems.
