JavaScript current year with getFullYear()

Did you hard code the year in your footer? New year, new problems.

With this one-liner, you can dynamically set the year with JavaScript:

let year = new Date().getFullYear();
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

If you are using VueJS or NuxtJS, you can add the current year code directly into your template section

<template>
    <footer>
        Copyright © {{ new Date().getFullYear() }}
    </footer>
</template>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
