Date formatting

const date = new Date()

const months = ['January', 'February', 'March', 'April', 'May', 'June', 'July', 'August', 'September', 'October', 'November', 'December'];

const month = months[date.getMonth()]
const day = date.getDate()
const year = date.getFullYear()

// January 1, 2021
return `${month} ${day}, ${year}`

// 1/1/2021
return `${date.getMonth() + 1}/${day}/${year}`
