Utilities for parsing time strings

Project description


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 Then, you can simply run

pip install bigml-chronos


Python 2.7 and Python 3 are currently supported.

The basic third-party dependencies are isoweek and pytz. These libraries are automatically installed during the setup.

Running the tests

The tests will be run using nose, that is installed on setup. You can run the test suite simply by issuing

python nosetests

Basic methods

There are three main methods in the chronos modules that you can use:

  • With parse_with_format you can specify the format_name that you want to use to parse your date:

    from chronos import parser
    parser.parse_with_format("week-date", "1969-W29-1")
  • With parse, you don't need to specify a format_name. Chronos will try all the possible formats until it finds the appropiate one:

    from chronos import parser
    parser.parse("7-14-1969 5:36 PM")
  • You can also find the format_name from a date with find_format:

    from chrono import parser

You can find all the supported formats, and an example for each one of them inside the test file.
