setDate() passing the result of
<today>.getDate() + 1, you’ll set the day as “tomorrow”.
If the day is
31(in months with 31 days) and using
1to the current one, the date will change month and the day will be the first of the new month. Or year, if it’s 31 December.
Here’s an example:
const today = new Date() const tomorrow = new Date(today) tomorrow.setDate(tomorrow.getDate() + 1)
tomorrow is now a Date object representing tomorrow’s date. The time did not change - it’s still the time you ran the command, increased by 24 hours.
If you also want to reset the time to “tomorrow at 00:00:00”, you can do so by calling
