Tags : golang year-month-day time-now-date

Problem :

You want to extract the year, month and day from today's date. How to do that?

Solution :

Use the time.Now().Date() function to get year, month and day from today's date.

For example :

 package main

 import (
 "fmt"
 "time"
 )

 func main() {
 year, month, day := time.Now().Date()
 fmt.Println("Year : ", year)
 fmt.Println("Month : ", month)
 fmt.Println("Day : ", day)

 if month == time.November && day == 10 {
 fmt.Println("Happy Go day!")
 }
 }

Sample output :

Year : 2015

Month : August

Day : 3
