In this article, we would like to show you how to get the last day of the month in JavaScript.

Quick solution:

// ONLINE-RUNNER:browser;

const date = new Date('2021-08');
const lastDay = new Date(date.getFullYear(), date.getMonth() + 1, 0);

console.log(lastDay.toISOString());  // 2021-08-30T22:00:00.000Z

 

Practical example

In this example, we use:

  • date.getFullYear() - to get the year of the specified date,
  • date.getMonth() - to get the month of the specified date +1 so we get the next month,
  • 0 in the Date() constructor stands for the day of the month (the last day of the previous month in our case).
// ONLINE-RUNNER:browser;

const date = new Date('2021-08-30');
const lastDay = new Date(date.getFullYear(), date.getMonth() + 1, 0);

console.log(lastDay.toISOString());  // 2021-08-30T22:00:00.000Z

Output:

2021-08-30T22:00:00.000Z
