Parse dates out of a textual string

Project description

# Date Range Parse

Crudely extends [dateparser](https://github.com/scrapinghub/dateparser) to extract out one or two dates from a string. Times are deliberately ignored, it only extracts the dates.

### Examples

from drparse import parse

Single Date with time range

dates = parse(“Thursday, July 28 at 8 PM - 11 PM”)

dates.start => datetime.datetime(2016, 7, 28, 0, 0)

Date range without time

dates = parse(“Thu, 6 - Sun, 16 Oct 2016”)

dates.start => datetime.datetime(2016, 10, 6, 0, 0) dates.end => datetime.datetime(2016, 10, 16, 0, 0)

Date range with time

dates = parse(“Sat May 28, 2016 to Sun May 29, 2016, 10PM till late”)

dates.start => datetime.datetime(2016, 5, 28, 0, 0) dates.end => datetime.datetime(2016, 5, 29, 0, 0)
