Status

https://travis-ci.org/slashmili/python-jalali.svg?branch=master https://ci.appveyor.com/api/projects/status/ge5rk703ydx649a6?svg=true https://img.shields.io/pypi/v/jdatetime.svg

Install

pip install jdatetime

Documents

This module exactly follows Python Standard datetime module’s methods http://docs.python.org/release/2.7.1/library/datetime.html

Also these methods are addedd to jdatetime.date and jdatetime.datetime :

fromgregorian(**kw)
    Convert gregorian to jalali and return jdatetime.date
    jdatetime.date.fromgregorian(day=X,month=X,year=X)
    jdatetime.date.fromgregorian(date=datetime.date)
    jdatetime.date.fromgregorian(datetime=datetime.datetime)
togregorian(self)
    Convert current jalali date to gregorian and return datetime.date
isleap(self)
    check if year is leap year
    algortim is based on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leap_year

Example

$ python
Python 2.6.6 (r266:84292, Sep 15 2010, 15:52:39)
[GCC 4.4.5] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
(InteractiveConsole)
>>> import jdatetime
>>> jdatetime.datetime.now()
jdatetime.datetime(1394, 12, 4, 8, 37, 31, 855729)
>>> jdatetime.date.today()
jdatetime.date(1394, 12, 4)

Locale

In order to get the date string in farsi you need to set the locale to fa_IR. The locale could be specified explicitly upon instantiation of date/datetime instances, or by setting a default locale.

Instance locales is named argument only:

import jdatetime
fa_date = jdatetime.date(1397, 4, 23, locale='fa_IR')
fa_datetime = jdatetime.datetime(1397, 4, 23, 11, 40, 30, locale='fa_IR')

date and datetime instances provide the method aslocale() to return a clone of the instance with the same timestamp, in a different locale.

Default Locale

It’s possible to set the default locale, so all new instances created afterwards would use the desired locale, unless explicitly specified otherwise.

$ python
Python 2.7.9 (default, Mar  1 2015, 12:57:24)
[GCC 4.9.2] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
(InteractiveConsole)
>>> import locale
>>> import jdatetime
>> jdatetime.datetime.now().strftime("%a, %d %b %Y %H:%M:%S")
u'Wed, 08 Ord 1395 20:47:32'
>>> locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL, "fa_IR")
'fa_IR'
>>> jdatetime.datetime.now().strftime("%a, %d %b %Y %H:%M:%S")
u'\u0686\u0647\u0627\u0631\u0634\u0646\u0628\u0647, 08 \u0627\u0631\u062f\u06cc\u0628\u0647\u0634\u062a 1395 20:47:56'

If your requirements demand to support different locales withing the same process, you could set the default locale per thread. New date and datetime instances created in each thread, will use the specified locale by default. This supports both Python threads, and greenlets.

import jdatetime
jdatetime.set_locale('fa_IR')
jdatetime.datetime.now().strftime('%A %B')
# u'\u062f\u0648\u0634\u0646\u0628\u0647 \u062e\u0631\u062f\u0627\u062f'

Release Steps

  • Bump the version setup.py
  • Add release notes in CHANGELOG.md
  • Commit and create a tag with a name like v3.5.9
  • python setup.py sdist
  • twine upload dist/jdatetime-3.5.9.tar.gz
