  9. <a class="navbar-brand" href="">Sourcecodester</a>
  10. </div>
  11. </nav>

  30. </body>
  31. </html>

Creating JavaScript Function

This is where the main function of the application is. This code will try you get the actual easter date base on the entered year. To do this just copy and write these block of codes inside the text editor and save it as script.js.
  1. let m=["January", "February", "March", "April", "May", "June", "July", "August", "September", "October", "November", "December"];
  4. function displayDate(){
  5. let year=document.getElementById('year').value;
  7. if(year.length == 0){
  8. alert("Please enter something");
  9. }else{
  10. let month=getEasterDate(year)[0];
  11. let day=getEasterDate(year)[1];
  12. document.getElementById('result').innerHTML="<h3>The easter date is: </h3><center><h2 class='text-primary'>"+m[month-1]+" "+day+", "+year+"</h2></center>";
  13. }
  14. }
  16. function getEasterDate(year) {
  17. let f = Math.floor;
  18. let G = year % 19;
  19. let C = f(year / 100);
  20. let H = (C - f(C / 4) - f((8 * C + 13)/25) + 19 * G + 15) % 30;
  21. let I = H - f(H/28) * (1 - f(29/(H + 1)) * f((21-G)/11));
  22. let J = (year + f(year / 4) + I + 2 - C + f(C / 4)) % 7;
  23. let L = I - J;
  24. let month = 3 + f((L + 40)/44);
  25. let day = L + 28 - 31 * f(month / 4);
  27. return [month,day];
  28. }

In the code above we a method that will calculate the date for the easter day, we will call this getEasterDate(). This function contains several algorithm that will calculate and target the actual easter date.
