Adding days to a date object in JavaScript

How can I add days to a Date in js, does it have a built in function like some libraries/other languages do in the style of .addDays()?

@NathanCruzAug 12, 2022 — You could actually add that method to the prototype yourself:

Date.prototype.addDays = function(days) {
var date = new Date(this.valueOf());
date.setDate(date.getDate() + days);
return date;
}

var date = new Date();

console.log(date.addDays(3));

Success!
