Javascript - Change greeting based on time of day

May 2017




Introduction


As with PHP, Javascript allows you to change the greeting based on the time of the day, thus you can change a "Good morning " to "Good evening" according to the clock of the user. But on the contrary of a PHP script, the advantage of the Javascript function is that that it follows the clock the user and not the server time.=

Implementation


Insert this snippet of code into your HTML source:

<body> 
[...] 
<span id="Good morning">Good morning</span> 
[...] 

<script type="text/javascript"> 
today=new Date() 
if(today.getHours() >= 0 && today.getHours() < 18) 
{      
document.getElementById('bonjour').innerHTML='Good morning'; 
} 
else 
{      
document.getElementById('bonjour').innerHTML='Good evening'; 
} 
</script> 

[...] 
</body>
