Javascript – Creating Minimal Digital Clocks

  • by

In previous post, we saw how we can create a Simple Digital Clock in Javascript. We created a clock completed based on Javascript display Date, 12-Time format and a little blinker for seconds. In this post we will create four new designs for our clock. These designs are completely based on Javascript ,CSS & Bootstrap CSS. So let’s design. 5 Simple Javascript Digital Clock Designs.

Javascript Digital Clock design 1:

javascript-clock-digital-1

This digital clock design will contain a gradient background with black background for the Clock display. We are using Montserrat font from Google fonts for our clock font-family. The code is simple. I have added the whole CSS and javascript on the same HTML file, you can use it as per your requirements:

Now let’s create another design.

Javascript Digital Clock design 2:

This is like old school clock designs like an physical Alarm clock with Green accent. We will again use Google fonts for this digital clock to constitute its design. It will have a green border shadow to make it more retro.
