Python Datetime Format

Chapter: Python Last Updated: 21-10-2021 19:46:29 UTC

Program:

            /* ............... START ............... */
                

import datetime

x = datetime.datetime.now()

print(x)

/* Output 
2021-10-21 23:32:08.105879
*/

/* Above  date contains year, month, day, hour, minute, second, and microsecond */


import datetime

x = datetime.datetime.now()

print(x.year)
print(x.strftime("%A"))

/* Output
2021
Thursday
*/

/* Creating Date Objects */
import datetime

x = datetime.datetime(2020, 5, 17)

print(x)

/* Output
2020-05-17 00:00:00
*/
                /* ............... END ............... */
        

Notes:

  • In order to work with python date and time, we have to import the module datetime.
  • datetime.now() method will give the current date and time. eg : 2021-10-21 23:32:08.105879
  • In the above format it contains year, month, day, hour, minute, second, and microsecond.
  • Using function you can get separate year and day, eg datetime.year will give year and datetime.strftime will print what is day it is.
  • By passing year, month and day we can easily create a date object in python , eg : x = datetime.datetime(2020, 5, 17)
