Today I needed to get a timestamp to include in a unique file that I'm generating with
It's one of these things that after 17 years, I still google to this day... Call me stupid or just ignorant in not saving it in my brain.
Wow, That was the one thing I can't get in my head?! Yes. There are other ways of doing it, so here are some alternatives that do the same:
new Date().getTime(); new Date().valueOf();
All three methods will get a millisecond timestamp; we can convert it to seconds by doing so:
Math.floor(Date.now() / 1000);
Feel free to have a look and play on this Codepen.
