Project description

PyPI version PyPI Supported Python Versions GitHub license GitHub Actions (Tests)


This is a plugin for Lektor which provides some helpers for dealing with dates and times.

Currently this provides a dateordatetime model field type which can contain either a date or a datetime.

Also the following jinja filters are provided:

Returns an iso formatted version the datetime, with timezone information. If dt is naive, it is localized to the site’s default timezone.
If dt is naive, it is localized to the site’s default timezone.


Release 0.3.2 (2020-11-19)


  • Ensure that comparable_date and comparable_datetime objects are hashable. This fixes issues using these classes with pytz under py3k.


  • Test under py3.9

Release 0.3.1 (2020-05-21)

This release freshens the packaging. There are no substantive changes to the code in this release.


  • Update packaging to PEP 517.
  • Update LICENSE to latest 3-clause BSD text.


  • Fix docstring syntax. No substantive changes.


  • Test under python 3.7 and 3.8.
  • Use twine check rather than check to test description syntax.

Release 0.3 (2018-01-18)

Fix things so that date and datetime types returned by the dateordatetime Lektor type are comparable against None. (None compares less than all other dates and datetimes.)

Release 0.2 (2017-08-04)

New features

Make lists of dateordatetime types sortable

The dateordatetime custom Lektor type now returns subclasses of or datetime.datetime which can be compared against one another. Normally, attempts to compare a date against a datetime results in a TypeError being raised. This made it difficult to sort on dateordatetime values.

Now dates sort before any datetimes with the same date. Naïve datetimes sort before timezone-aware datetimes with the same date.

Release 0.1 (2017-04-19)

Initial release.
