How to get only the current date number using JavaScript?

Published August 17, 2021

To get only the current date number, we can use the getDate() method from the global Date object in JavaScript.

TL;DR

// Make an instance or object of the Date constructor
const currentDate = new Date();

// get the current date number
const dateNumber = currentDate.getDate();

console.log(dateNumber); // eg: 17

First, let's make an object (or instance) from the global Date constructor using the new keyword like this,

// Make an instance or object of the Date constructor
const currentDate = new Date();

Now we can use the getDate() method from the currentDate object to get the date number like this,

// Make an instance or object of the Date constructor
const currentDate = new Date();

// get the current date number
const dateNumber = currentDate.getDate();

console.log(dateNumber); // eg: 17

Yay, We successfully got the date number 🎉!

See the above code live in JSBin.
