How do I format dates from Mongoose in Node.js?

492    Asked by CsabaToth in Devops , Asked on Jun 15, 2021

 I'm trying to change the format of the dates I'm getting from my Mongo database. Currently, they look like this:

Fri Sep 16 2011 19:05:17 GMT+0900 (JST)

I've tried calling .toString('yyyy-MM-dd') on them but nothing changes. I don't know if they're Date objects or just raw strings.

I've tried checking the Mongoose manual and googling a bunch, but not found anything yet.

Any ideas?

To do mongoose date format in Node.js you have to create a Date object first see the code mentioned below:-

var date = new Date(dateStr);
var d = date.getDate();
var m = date.getMonth()+1;
