Convert fuzzy date to a datetime object.

Project Description

Convert from fuzzy dates like “yesterday”, “2 weeks and 1 day ago”, “next wed”, “Jan 4”, etc., to a datetime object.

This is useful for processing command line arguments:

>>> from optparse import OptionParser
>>> import magicdate
>>> parser = OptionParser(option_class=magicdate.MagicDateOption)
>>> parser.add_option('-s', '--start', dest='start', type='magicdate', default=None)
>>> parser.add_option('-e', '--end', dest='end', type='magicdate', default='today')

Now you can pass options like “today”, “1996-01-01”, etc., to your program.

Inspired by Simon Willison’s dateparse.js.
