How to get a unix timestamp in JavaScript

To get a Unix timestamp in JavaScript, we need to add unary operator + to the Date() constructor.

Example:

const unix = + new Date();

console.log(unix); // 576366756374

To get the timestamp in milliseconds you can use:

const milliseconds = Math.floor(Date.now() / 1000);
