<script src="https:///unpkg.com/easy-dates"></script>

3. closestTo(controlDate, compareDate). Return an object containing data of the compareDate closest to the controlDate.

// compare multiple dates
const twentyFourHours = 86400000;
const today = new Date(Date.now());
const tomorrow = new Date(Date.now() + twentyFourHours);
const dayAfterTomorrow = new Date(Date.now() + twentyFourHours * 2);
const weekAfterTomorrow = new Date(Date.now() + twentyFourHours * 7);
const argumentsArray = [tomorrow, dayAfterTomorrow, weekAfterTomorrow];
closestTo(today, argumentsArray)
/* returns...
{ 
  difference: 85400000, 
  closest: Sat Mar 19 2022 20:26:34 GMT-0400 (Eastern Daylight Time), 
  closestIndex: 0 
}
*/
// compare a single date

/* returns...
{ 
  difference: 85400000,
