Tomorrow date in javascript

Let's see some of the easy ways to get tomorrow's date using javascript and some external libraries in javascript

Built-in Method

Here, we are going to use a built-in Date method to get tomorrow's date in javascript.

new Date() returns the current date in javascript. Also, the getDate method in javascript returns the current date value(1-31).

we are going to increment that value and use function setDate to get tomorrow's date.

const today = new Date()

// to return the date number(1-31) for the specified date
console.log("today => ",today)

let tomorrow =  new Date()
tomorrow.setDate(today.getDate() + 1)
//returns the tomorrow date
console.log("tomorrow => ",tomorrow)

Momentjs

After that, we are going to use momentjs to get tomorrow date in javascript.

Let's install momentjs in our project using the command,

npm i moment

Now, you can get the current date using moment instance inside your project.

const todayMoment = moment() //returns the current date with moment instance.

To get tomorrow date, you just need to add +1 days to the today moment instance.

const tomorrowMoment = todayMoment.clone().add(1,'days')

Here, we clone the todayMoment instance. because moment instance are mutable. it's always better the clone it before manipulating it.

Date Fns

Now, we will see how to get tomorrow date using date-fns. it is so simple to get the date using date-fns.

const tomorrowFns = add(new Date(),{
  days: 1
})

console.log("tomorrow",tomorrowFns)

Using, we can add days,month and year easily.

var result = add(new Date(2020, 8, 1, 10, 19, 50), {
  years: 2,
  months: 9,
  weeks: 1,
  days: 7,
  hours: 5,
  minutes: 9,
  seconds: 30,
})

Conclusion

We can use any one method depends upon the requirement. if you don't want to install a library, you can go with javascript in-built method to solve the problem.

Hi,

You should avoid using Moment JS it is huge...

Date-fns or other libraries have maintenance costs if there is (major) version change

Vanilla JS getDate and setDate would suffice and you can vary the days, forward or back
