How do I multiply today’s date by the number of days? [duplicate]


Using jQuery, I need to be able to add 1, 2, 5, or 10 days to today’s date.

You can use JavaScript without jQuery:

var someDate = new Date();
var numberOfDaysToAdd = 6;
var result = someDate.setDate(someDate.getDate() + numberOfDaysToAdd);
console.log(new Date(result))

This is for a 5-day period:

var myDate = new Date(new Date().getTime()+(5*24*60*60*1000));

You don’t need JQuery to do this; you can do it in JavaScript.

This is how you could expand the javascript Date object.

Date.prototype.addDays = function(days) {
    this.setDate(this.getDate() + parseInt(days));
    return this;

and you could call it from your javascript code

var currentDate = new Date();
// to add 4 days to current date

Why not just utilize it?

function addDays(theDate, days) {
    return new Date(theDate.getTime() + days*24*60*60*1000);

var newDate = addDays(new Date(), 5);

or -5 to get rid of 5 days

Now is the time to install. From here, you can get JavaScript.

npm : $ npm i –save moment

install bower —save-moment $ bower install —save-moment


var date = moment()
            .add(2,'d') //replace 2 with number of days you want to add
            .toDate(); //convert it to a Javascript Date Object if you like

Moment.js is a fantastic Javascript framework for managing Date objects that is only 40kb in size.

Good Luck.
