Truncate datetime objects to a set level of precision

Project Description

This module truncates a datetime object to the level of precision that you specify, making everything higher than that zero (or one for day and month).

It is based on PostgreSQL’s DATE_TRUNC.

Documentation available on Read the Docs.

Installation:

You can install from pypi!

pip install datetime_truncate

Usage:

>>> from datetime_truncate import truncate
>>> truncate(datetime(2012, 2, 4, 12, 24, 50, 234), 'second')
datetime(2012, 2, 4, 12, 24, 50)
>>> truncate(datetime(2012, 2, 4, 12, 24, 50), 'minute')
datetime(2012, 2, 4, 12, 24)
>>> truncate(datetime(2012, 2, 4, 12, 24), 'hour')
datetime(2012, 2, 4, 12)
>>> truncate(datetime(2012, 2, 4, 12, 24), 'day')
datetime(2012, 2, 4)
>>> truncate(datetime(2012, 2, 4, 12, 24), 'week')
