Project description

Simple python module for mark time.

Inspired by two functions from node.js:

Main features:

  • easy to use
  • no external dependencies
  • 100% test coverage
  • works with Python 2.7 and 3.3

Usage

$ pip install marktime
import marktime

marktime.start('some task')
marktime.start('some another task')

marktime.stop('some task')
8.757422924041748

marktime.stop('some another task').seconds
14.805735111236572

marktime.duration('some another task').msecs
14805.735111236572

marktime.start('some task # 3')

with marktime.stopwatch('some task # 4'):
    marktime.time.sleep(1)

import json
print json.dumps(marktime.labels, indent=4)
{
    "some another task": {
        "duration": 14.805735111236572,
        "start_time": 1370453758.064955,
        "end_time": 1370453772.87069
    },
    "some task # 3": {
        "start_time": 1370453892.025603,
        "end_time": None
    },
    "some task # 4": {
        "duration": 1.00120210647583,
        "start_time": 1370638027.000799,
        "end_time": 1370638028.002001
    },
    "some task": {
        "duration": 8.757422924041748,
        "start_time": 1370453753.185846,
        "end_time": 1370453761.943269
    }
}

API

  • marktime.start (label, at=None)
    • label — marker label. String. Required.
    • at — time to start the countdown. If None then uses time.time().
  • marktime.stop (label, remove_from_labels=False, stop_once=True)
    • label — marker label. String. Required.
    • at — time to stop the countdown. If None then uses time.time()
    • remove_from_labels — if True then label removed from global dict marktime.labels.
    • stop_once — if False and the countdown for the certain label is allready stopped thet it stopped it again. And thereafter the duration for the certain label will be increased.
  • marktime.duration (label, stop_it=True, stop_at=None)
    • label — marker label. String. Required.
    • stop_it — if True then the countdown for the certain label will be stopped. If False and the countdown for the certain label is not stopped then returns None.
    • stop_at — passed into stop function if stop_it == True
  • marktime.stopwatch (label) — context manager (with statement support)
  • marktime.labels — global dict that stores all the labels for time markers.
