Project description


pip install magic-timer

Conveniently get a rough idea of how long things take.

This is a light wrapper around the standard library's time.monotonic.

How to use:

Use via MagicTimer object:

from magic_timer import MagicTimer

def do_stuff():
    [i*i for i in range(5_000_000)]

timer = MagicTimer()
print('Stuff took', timer)
> Stuff took 455 milliseconds

Use via ftimer decorator:

from magic_timer import ftimer

def do_stuff():
    [i*i for i in range(20_000_000)]

> `do_stuff` ran in 1.9 seconds.

The use case for this package:

You have something you want to time, but you don't want to time it multiple times with timeit.

You also don't want to use Jupyter's %%timeit because it puts the cell into a different scope.

You can import magic-timer, throw it in, and get a rough idea of the time taken. (It's slightly neater than using time.monotonic directly.)
