Utility to convert strings like "201301-201302" to start and end datetime tuples

Project description

Create meaningful date/time ranges using strings like e.g. “201301” or “201301-201302”.

Install

pip install daterangestr

Quickstart

The daterangestr has exactly one function, to_dates, which converts a date string of a certain, simple format to a datetime tuple.

Example:

>>> from daterangestr import to_dates
>>> (start, end) = to_dates("20131014-20131018")
>>> print start, end
2013-10-14 00:00:00 2013-10-18 23:59:59

Supported string formats

Rules

  1. Dates can be given in format YYYY, YYYYMM or YYYYMMDD.
  2. The date string can contain either only one date or two dates, seperated by a dash.
  3. If the dash seperator is present and only one date is given, the other date is assumed to be the minimum possible or the maximum possible date.

Jan 1 2012 - Dec 31 2012 (whole year)
