Get Current Date & Time in JavaScript

Use Date() method to create an object in JavaScript with current date and time. This provides output in UTC timezone.

var today = new Date();

1. Current Date in JavaScript

Use the following script to get the current date using JavaScript in “Y-m-d” format.

var today = new Date();
var date = today.getFullYear()+'-'+(today.getMonth()+1)+'-'+today.getDate();
  • getFullYear() – Provides current year like 2020.
  • getMonth() – Provides current month values 0-11. Where 0 for Jan and 11 for Dec. So added +1 to get result.
  • getDate() – Provides day of the month values 1-31.

2. Current Time in JavaScript

Use the following script to get the current time using JavaScript in “H:i:s” format.

var today = new Date();
var time = today.getHours() + ":" + today.getMinutes() + ":" + today.getSeconds();
  • getHours() – Provides current hour between 0-23.
  • getMinutes() – Provides current minutes between 0-59.
  • getSeconds() – Provides current seconds between 0-59.

3. Current Date & Time Both in JavaScript

Use the following script to get the current date and time using JavaScript in “Y-m-d H:i:s” format. You can simply combine the output of the above JavaScript code in one variable as below:

var today = new Date();
var date = today.getFullYear()+'-'+(today.getMonth()+1)+'-'+today.getDate();
var time = today.getHours() + ":" + today.getMinutes() + ":" + today.getSeconds();
var dateTime = date+' '+time;
