library for manipulating datetimes with ease and clarity
Delorean: Time Travel Made Easy
Delorean is a library for clearing up the inconvenient truths that arise dealing with datetimes in Python. Understanding that timing is a delicate enough of a problem delorean hopes to provide a cleaner less troublesome solution to shifting, manipulating, and generating datetimes.
Delorean will provide natural language improvements for manipulating time, as well as datetime abstractions for ease of use. The overall goal is to improve datetime manipulations, with a little bit of software and philsophy.
Pretty much make you a badass time traveller.
Here is the world without a flux capacitor at your side:
from datetime import datetime from pytz import timezone EST = "US/Eastern" UTC = "UTC" d = datetime.utcnow() utc = timezone(UTC) est = timezone(EST) d = utc.localize(d) d = est.normalize(EST) return d
Now lets warm up the delorean:
from delorean import Delorean EST = "US/Eastern" d = Delorean(timezone=EST) return d
Look at you looking all fly. This was just a test drive: check out out what else delorean can help with below.
