cookie('_ga');

  "#" + ((1 << 24) + (r << 16) + (g << 8) + b).toString(16).slice(1);

rgbToHex(0, 51, 255); 
// Result: #0033ff

Find the day of year

Find which is the day by a given date.

dayOfYear(new Date());
// Result: 272

capitalize("follow for more")
// Result: Follow for more

Find the number of days between two days

Find the days between 2 given days using the following snippet.

const dayDif = (date1, date2) => Math.ceil(Math.abs(date1.getTime() - date2.getTime()) / 86400000)

dayDif(new Date("2020-10-21"), new Date("2021-10-22"))
// Result: 366

Generate Random Hex

You can generate random hex colors with Math.random and padEnd properties.

const randomHex = () => `#${Math.floor(Math.random() * 0xffffff).toString(16).padEnd(6, "0")}`;

console.log(randomHex());
// Result: #92b008

Get Query Params from URL

You can easily retrieve query params from a url either by passing window.location or the raw URL goole.com?search=easy&page=3

  URL = JSON.parse('{"' + decodeURI(URL.split("?")[1]).replace(/"/g, '"').replace(/&/g, '","').replace(/=/g, '":"') +'"}');
  return JSON.stringify(URL);
};

getParameters(window.location)
// Result: { search : "easy", page : 3 }
Enter fullscreen mode

Log Time from Date

We can log time, in the format hour::minutes::seconds from a given date.

const timeFromDate = date => date.toTimeString().slice(0, 8);
