This post will show you how to add or subtract minutes based on your projects that involve date objects.

get the present time

to get the present time we create a variable and return it.

1
2
3
let present = new Date();
alert (present)
//present date and time

adding minute to the present time

to add minutes we will use the variable and set minutes we want.

1
2
3
4
let future = new Date();
future.setMinutes(future.getMinutes() + 30)
alert (future)
//future date and time

subtract minutes from present time

this is similar to the above example except that instead of using plus sign you will use the minus

1

4
let past = new Date();
past.setMinutes(past.getMinutes() - 40)
alert (past)
//past date and time
