Utilities for parsing time strings
# Chronos Utilities for parsing time strings in Python.
## Building and installation
Before installing chronos you will have to generate some of its modules as it is explained in [Chronos readme](../readme.md) Then, you can simply run
`shell pip install bigml-chronos `
## Requirements Python 2.7 and Python 3 are currently supported.
## Running the tests The tests will be run using nose, that is installed on setup. You can run the test suite simply by issuing
`shell python setup.py nosetests `
## Basic methods Chronos offers the following main functions:
With parse you can parse a date. You can specify a format name with format_name, a list of possible format names with format_names or not specify any format. In the last case, parse will try all the possible formats until it finds the correct one:
`python from chronos import chronos chronos.parse("1969-W29-1", format_name="week-date") `
`python from chronos import chronos chronos.parse("1969-W29-1", format_names=["week-date", "week-date-time"]) `
`python from chronos import chronos chronos.parse("7-14-1969 5:36 PM") `
You can also find the format_name from a date with find_format:
`python from chronos import parser chronos.find_format("1969-07-14Z") `
If both format_name and format_names are passed, it will try all the possible formats in format_names and format_name.
You can find all the supported formats, and an example for each one of them inside the [test file](./bigml/chronos/tests/test_chronos.py).
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
