R&D 2014-10-20: Sync Server Time with JavaScript

, By Patcoola

Using the PHP’s time() function to set the date in JavaScript. Useful for when the Website would like the visitor to be able to view the same date and time that the Website has.

In JavaScript we need to assign the argument zero to new Date(), then use the setTime() function with the server time multiplied by 1000.

This might not be the best time, but making a blog is not easy. Would you consider donating?


Code:

<?php

$serverTime = time()+1; // plus 1 to offset for a delay

?>

<script>

var d = new Date(0); // important must have the value 0
var t = <?php ECHO $serverTime; ?>;

d.setTime(t*1000);

</script>
