Get "Day of Year" with NodeRed?

Hi there,

to be able to set the limits of my PV according to the expected value of sunshine, I would like to use the DayOfYear as a Trigger.
Is there a way in Node-Red, comparable to MS SQL --> select datepart (dayofyear,getdate()) as DayOfYear

that gives me the actual Day of the Year as an integer ?


Try this

function daysIntoYear(date){
    return (Date.UTC(date.getFullYear(), date.getMonth(), date.getDate()) - Date.UTC(date.getFullYear(), 0, 0)) / 24 / 60 / 60 / 1000;

how do I use this code inside a function node ? how can I execute it with the "date" value ?

To get todays day number put this into your function node, any trigger will output the day number,

var date = new Date()
msg.payload = (Date.UTC(date.getFullYear(), date.getMonth(), date.getDate()) - Date.UTC(date.getFullYear(), 0, 0) ) / 24 / 60 / 60 / 1000
return msg;

you could also use the jsonata expression $moment().dayOfYear() in a Change node
