convert local time to utc time by airport or vise-versa.

Project description

Convert local time to utc time by airport or vise-versa.

This works thanks to data from opentraveldata. The data source is here:


Here is the usage:

>>> # import the library
>>> import airporttime

>>> # we are also going to use the datetime library
>>> from datetime import datetime

>>> # create an instance of AirportTime at 'ORD'
>>> apt = airporttime.AirportTime(iata_code='ORD')

>>> # ** side note ** the apt object contains one attribute, basically an instance of a row of data
>>> print(apt.airport.__dict__)

>>> # suppose you have a naive local datetime you want to convert
>>> naive_loc_time = datetime(2019, 1, 1, 10, 30)

>>> # convert your naive local date and time to utc
>>> tz_aware_utc_time = apt.to_utc(naive_loc_time)
>>> print(tz_aware_utc_time)
2019-02-02 16:30:00+00:00

>>> # convert your tz aware back to local time if you want to
>>> tz_aware_loc_time = apt.from_utc(tz_aware_utc_time)
>>> print(tz_aware_loc_time)
2019-02-02 10:30:00-06:00

>>> # ** side note ** this library internally tries to account daylight savings time (dst)
>>> print(apt._dst(naive_loc_time, tz_aware_loc_time.tzinfo))

>>> # if you would like to update the data file, you can use:
>>> airporttime.update()
