Format Date and Time with Strftime()
As of now we have learned, how to use datetime and date object in Python.
We will advance a step further and learn how to use a formatting function to format Time and Date.
from datetime import datetime def main(): now= datetime.now() #get the current date and time print(now.strftime("%c")) print(now.strftime("%x")) print(now.strftime("%X")) #%I/%H - 12/24 Hour, %M - minute, %S - second, %p - local's AM/PM print(now.strftime("%I:%M:%S %p")) # 12-Hour:Minute:Second:AM print(now.strftime("%H:%M")) # 24-Hour:Minute if __name__== "__main__": main()
%c – local date and time
%X- local’s time
