Function to convert timestamp to human date in javascript

How to convert this timestamp 1382086394000 to 2013-10-18 08:53:14 using a function in javascript? Currently I have this function:

function cleanDate(d) {return new Date(+d.replace(/\/Date\((\d+)\)\//, '$1'));}



The value 1382086394000 is probably a time value, which is the number of milliseconds since 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z. You can use it to create an ECMAScript Date object using the Date constructor:

var d = new Date(1382086394000);

How you convert that into something readable is up to you. Simply sending it to output should call the internal (and entirely implementation dependent) toString method* that usually prints the equivalent system time in a human readable form, e.g.

Fri Oct 18 2013 18:53:14 GMT+1000 (EST) 

In ES5 there are some other built-in formatting options:

and so on. Note that most are implementation dependent and will be different in different browsers. If you want the same format across all browsers, you'll need to format the date yourself, e.g.:

alert(d.getDate() + '/' + (d.getMonth()+1) + '/' + d.getFullYear());

* The format of Date.prototype.toString has been standardised in ECMAScript 2018. It might be a while before it's ubiquitous across all implementations, but at least the more common browsers support it now.


This works fine. Checked in chrome browser:

var theDate = new Date(timeStamp_value * 1000);
dateString = theDate.toGMTString();
alert(dateString );

why not simply

new Date (timestamp);

A date is a date, the formatting of it is a different matter.


Moment.js can convert unix timestamps into any custom format

In this case : var time = moment(1382086394000).format("DD-MM-YYYY h:mm:ss");

will print 18-10-2013 11:53:14;

Here's a plunker that demonstrates this.


Here are the simple ways to every date format confusions:

for current date:

var current_date=new Date();

to get the Timestamp of current date:

var timestamp=new Date().getTime();

to convert a particular Date into Timestamp:

var timestamp_formation=new Date('mm/dd/yyyy').getTime();

to convert timestamp into Date:

    var timestamp=new Date('02/10/2016').getTime();
    var todate=new Date(timestamp).getDate();
    var tomonth=new Date(timestamp).getMonth()+1;
    var toyear=new Date(timestamp).getFullYear();
    var original_date=tomonth+'/'+todate+'/'+toyear;


we need to create new function using JavaScript.

function unixTime(unixtime) {

    var u = new Date(unixtime*1000);

      return u.getUTCFullYear() +
        '-' + ('0' + u.getUTCMonth()).slice(-2) +
        '-' + ('0' + u.getUTCDate()).slice(-2) + 
        ' ' + ('0' + u.getUTCHours()).slice(-2) +
        ':' + ('0' + u.getUTCMinutes()).slice(-2) +
        ':' + ('0' + u.getUTCSeconds()).slice(-2) +
        '.' + (u.getUTCMilliseconds() / 1000).toFixed(3).slice(2, 5) 


2016-04-30 08:36:26.000

formatDate is the function you can call it and pass the date you want to format to dd/mm/yyyy

var unformatedDate = new Date("2017-08-10 18:30:00");
function formatDate(nowDate) {
	return nowDate.getDate() +"/"+ (nowDate.getMonth() + 1) + '/'+ nowDate.getFullYear();
<script src=""></script>
<div id="hello">



To calculate date in timestamp from the given date

//To get the timestamp date from normal date: In format - 1560105000000

//input date can be in format : "2019-06-09T18:30:00.000Z"

this.calculateDateInTimestamp = function (inputDate) {
    var date = new Date(inputDate);
    return date.getTime();

output : 1560018600000


My ES6 variant produces a string like this 2020-04-05_16:39:45.85725. Feel free to modify the return statement to get the format that you need:

const getDateStringServ = timestamp => {

  const plus0 = num => `0${num.toString()}`.slice(-2)

  const d = new Date(timestamp)

  const year = d.getFullYear()
  const monthTmp = d.getMonth() + 1
  const month = plus0(monthTmp)
  const date = plus0(d.getDate())
  const hour = plus0(d.getHours())
  const minute = plus0(d.getMinutes())
  const second = plus0(d.getSeconds())
  const rest = timestamp.toString().slice(-5)

  return `${year}-${month}-${date}_${hour}:${minute}:${second}.${rest}`
