Day 6: JavaScript Dates | 10 Days of JavaScript – Hacker Rank Solution

Objective

In this challenge, we learn about JavaScript Dates. Check out the attached tutorial for more details.

Task

Given a date string, dataString, in the format MM/DD/YYYY, find and return the day name for that date. Each day name must be one of the following strings: SundayMondayTuesdayWednesdayThursdayFriday, or Saturday. For example, the day name for the date 12/07/2016 is Wednesday.

Input Format

Locked stub code in the editor reads the following input from stdin:
The first line contains an integer, d, denoting the number of dates to check.
Each line i of the d subsequent lines contains a date in MM/DD/YYYY format; each date denotes some dateString that is passed to the function.

Constraints

  • It is guaranteed that the input only consists of valid dates.

Output Format

The function must return a string denoting the day of the week corresponding to the date denoted by dateString.

Sample Input 0

2

10/11/2009

11/10/2010

Sample Output 0

Sunday

Wednesday

Explanation 0

The function is called for the following d = 2 dates:

  1. The date 10/11/2009 was a Sunday, so we return Sunday.
  2. The date 11/10/2010 was a Wednesday, so we return Wednesday.

'use strict';
process.stdin.resume();
process.stdin.setEncoding('utf-8');
let inputString = '';
let currentLine = 0;
process.stdin.on('data', inputStdin => {
    inputString += inputStdin;
});
process.stdin.on('end', _ => {
    inputString = inputString.trim().split('\n').map(string => {
        return string.trim();
    });
    main();
});
function readLine() {
    return inputString[currentLine++];
}
// The days of the week are: "Sunday", "Monday", "Tuesday", "Wednesday", "Thursday", "Friday", "Saturday"
function getDayName(dateString) {
    const date = new Date(dateString);
    const options = {
      weekday: 'long'
    };
    return new Intl.DateTimeFormat('en-Us', options).format(date);
}
function main() {
    const d = +(readLine());
    for (let i = 0; i < d; i++) {
        const date = readLine();
        console.log(getDayName(date));
    }
}
