get yesterdays date with javascript

This gets todays date and minuses one day from it to be ... yesterday. 

let yesterday = new Date(new Date().setDate(new Date().getDate()-1));
console.log(yesterday);

This format is the full date and may not be all you need so you can use the second part of this script to change the formatting of the date output a bit. Into something a bit shorter. 

var options = { weekday: 'long', year: 'numeric', month: 'long', day: 'numeric' };
console.log(yesterday.toLocaleDateString("en-AU", options));

This will produce something like this: 

Monday, 10 January 2022

Javascript

/* 
this gets yesterdays date in the following long format
Mon Jan 10 2022 09:46:01 GMT+1100 (Australian Eastern Daylight Time)
*/
let yesterday = new Date(new Date().setDate(new Date().getDate()-1));
console.log(yesterday);

/*
This can be a bit long, so if you want it in a more specific format you can format the results using the following
[ https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3552461/how-to-format-a-javascript-date ]
var options = { weekday: 'long', year: 'numeric', month: 'long', day: 'numeric' };
var today  = new Date();

console.log(today.toLocaleDateString("en-US")); // 9/17/2016
console.log(today.toLocaleDateString("en-US", options)); // Saturday, September 17, 2016
console.log(today.toLocaleDateString("hi-IN", options)); // शनिवार, 17 सितंबर 2016
*/

var options = { weekday: 'long', year: 'numeric', month: 'long', day: 'numeric' };
console.log(yesterday.toLocaleDateString("en-AU", options));
