June 11th, 2022 · 1 min read

Hi Friends 👋,

Welcome To Infinitbility! ❤️

To add seconds in the date using moment js, just use the moment().add() method by passing two parameters, first is the number of seconds you want to add, and the second parameter is 'seconds' it’s means want to add seconds.

Just import moment in your file and invoke moment().add(30, 'seconds'); it will show the current date time plus 30 seconds.

1moment().add(20, 'seconds');

Today, I’m going to show How do I add seconds in moment js, here I will use the momentjs common method add() to add seconds in the date object.

2yarn add moment # Yarn
3Install-Package Moment.js # NuGet
4spm install moment --save # spm
5meteor add momentjs:moment # meteor

Example in reactjs

In the following example, we are going to do

  1. import the moment package
  2. create a function and console the current time.
  3. add seconds in the current time and re-console it.

let’s write the code.

1import moment from "moment";
3// create a function and console moment
4function consoleTheMoment() {
5 let currentDateTime = moment();
6 console.log("currentDateTime", currentDateTime)
7 // add seconds in current time and re console it.
8 currentDateTime = moment(currentDateTime).add(30, 'seconds')
9 console.log("currentDateTime plus 30s", currentDateTime)
12function App() {
13 consoleTheMoment()
14 return (
15 <div>
16 {/* moment in react render */}
17 {moment().format("hh:mm:ss")}
18 </div>
19 );
22export default App;

In the above program, we call moment().add() in simple custom function and and add 30 seconds in it.

let’s check the output.
