Rectifying the time string in JavaScript

JavascriptWeb DevelopmentFront End Technology

Problem

We are required to write a JavaScript function that takes in a time string in “HH:MM:SS” format.

But there was a problem in addition, so many of the time strings are broken which means the MM part may exceed 60, and SS part may as well exceed 60.

Our function should make required changes to the string and return the new rectified string.

For instance −

"08:11:71" -> "08:12:11"

Example

Following is the code −

 Live Demo

const str = '08:11:71';
const rectifyTime = (str = '') => {
   if(!Boolean(str)){
      return str;
   };
   const re = /^(\d\d):(\d\d):(\d\d)$/;
   if (!re.test(str)){
      return null;
   };
   let [h, m, s] = str.match(re).slice(1,4).map(Number);
   let time = h * 3600 + m * 60 + s;
   s = time % 60;
   m = (time / 60 |0) % 60;
   h = (time / 3600 |0) % 24;
   return [h, m, s]
   .map(String)
   .join(':');
};
console.log(rectifyTime(str));

Output

Following is the console output −

08:12:11
