The last date parser

Project Description

Date Machine is a Date parsing system.

It is based on Reparse, and includes 14 date patterns, and a Javascript version.

date_machine_parse('All day Thursday-Sunday, Sept. 20-23., Friday September 21')
#       [Date(month=9, day=20),
#        Date(month=9, day=21),
#        Date(month=9, day=22),
#        Date(month=9, day=23)],
  • Fast
  • Scannable: Use over full text and find dates
  • Honest: no approximations given about the dates (i.e. if the year is missing it’s not included)
  • Portable: Parser description compiles to Regex/Json. You just have to write the output builder functions.
  • Highly-Customizable: Adding more formats at different levels is easy (if you know regular expressions).

Installation

pip install date_machine

or

python setup.py install

in the base directory.

Usage

import date_machine
date_machine.parse('Jan 1st')
# [Date(month=1, day=11)]
