Getting a current Year in Vue app

In this tutorial, we will learn about how to get a current year in the vue app.

Getting the current year

We can get the current year in vue by calling a getFullYear() method on a new Date() constructor.

The getFullYear() method returns the year according to the user local time in four-digit(2020) format.

In this below example, we are rendering a current year in the footer component of our vue app.

Footer.vue
<template>
  <div id="app">
    <footer>
      <p>CopyRight - {{new Date().getFullYear()}}</p>    </footer>
  </div>
</template>

Instead of directly adding new Date().getFullYear() method to the template, we can also store it in the vue data property like this.

Footer.vue
<template>
  <div id="app">
    <footer>
      <p>CopyRight - {{currentYear}}</p>    </footer>
  </div>
</template>

<script>
export default {
  data() {
    return {
      currentYear: new Date().getFullYear(), // 2020    };
  }
};
</script>
