How can I convert a Unix timestamp to DateTime in Javascript?

1. Convert the unix timestamp into milliseconds by multiplying it by 1000

2. Use the newly created milliseconds value to create a date object with the new Date() constructor method

3. Use the .toLocaleString() function to convert the date object into human-friendly date strings

Example 1

const unixTimestamp = 1575909015

const milliseconds = unixTimestamp * 1000 // 1575909015000

Example 2

const unixTimestamp = 1575909015

const milliseconds = 1575909015 * 1000 // 1575909015000

const dateObject = new Date(milliseconds)
