Creates a wrapper around the `DateFormatter`, which is an improved version of the Intl.DateTimeFormat API, that is used internally by the various date builders to easily format dates in a consistent way.

<script setup lang="ts">
import { type Ref, ref } from 'vue'
import { CalendarDate, type DateValue } from '@internationalized/date'
import { toDate, useDateFormatter } from 'radix-vue'

const value = ref(new CalendarDate(1995, 8, 18)) as Ref<DateValue>
// provide the locale
const formatter = useDateFormatter('en')

    <!-- output the month in short format. e.g.: Jan, Feb, etc. -->
    {{ formatter.custom(value.toDate(getLocalTimeZone()), {
      month: 'short',
    }) }}
