How to set a countdown timer in javascript?

JavascriptFront End TechnologyObject Oriented Programming

You can create a countdown timer in Javascript using the setInterval method. The setInterval() method, repeatedly calls a function or executes a code snippet, with a fixed time delay between each call.

To create a countdown, we need to check the difference between current time and final time and keep updating the countdown. For example,

Example

let countDownDate = new Date("Jul 21, 2020 00:00:00").getTime();
let x = setInterval(() => {
   let now = new Date().getTime();
   let distance = countDownDate - now;
   // Time calculations for days, hours, minutes and seconds
   let days = Math.floor(distance / (1000 * 60 * 60 * 24));
   let hours = Math.floor((distance % (1000 * 60 * 60 * 24)) / (1000 * 60 * 60));
   let minutes = Math.floor((distance % (1000 * 60 * 60)) / (1000 * 60));
   let seconds = Math.floor((distance % (1000 * 60)) / 1000);
   console.log(days + "d " + hours + "h " + minutes + "m " + seconds + "s");
   // If the count down is finished, write some text
   if (distance < 0) {
      clearInterval(x);
      console.log("completed")
   }
}, 1000);
