Datárum is a small python library to convert Gregorian dates to Wending, an Old English variant on the French Republican calendar, for use in various projects. Documentation is available on ReadTheDocs.

The leap years are calculated according to the Romme rule, which uses the 4-100-400 rule from the Gregorian calendar (a leap day becoming an extra 6th Wending day).

Hwý?

I appreciate the political impulse behind the French Republican calendar, as well as its more rational system (12 months of 30 days, plus 5/6 celebratory days at the end of the year). However, I like the aesthetics of Old English more than the original french names for the months, so I’ve attempted to rougly translate or otherwise approximate the Old English equivalents.
