np_date = nepalidate(year, month, day)

# object with today's date
np_date =

# parse date
np_date = nepalidate.strptime('2078-01-12', format='%Y-%m-%d')

Object from python's

import datetime

date =
np_date = nepalidate.from_date(date)

Get python's object


Get python's datetime.datetime object



Represents nepali date time

from nepali.datetime import nepalidatetime  

Creating new object

# object with specific datetime
np_datetime = nepalidatetime(year, month, day[, hour[, minute[, second]]]) # arguments must be nepali

# object with current datetime
np_datetime =

# parse datetime
np_datetime = nepalidatetime.strptime('2078-01-12 13:12', format='%Y-%m-%d %H:%M')

Object from python's datetime.datetime

import datetime

dt =
np_datetime = nepalidatetime.from_datetime(dt)

Get nepalidate object

Get python's datetime.time object


Get python's datetime.datetime object


Date String Format
Equivalent to python's datetime strftime format

npDateTime =
print(npDateTime.strftime('%a %A %w %d %b %B %m %y %Y %H %I %p %M %S'))
print(npDateTime.strftime_en('%a %A %w %d %b %B %m %y %Y %H %I %p %M %S'))

timedelta operations

ndt =
print(ndt + datetime.timedelta(hours=5))
print(ndt - datetime.timedelta(hours=5))


Parses datetime from a string.

parse uses very high cost method, so avoid this as much as you can.

from nepali.datetime import parser as nepalidatetime_parser
ndt = nepalidatetime_parser.parse('29 Jestha, 2078, 1:30 PM')


nepalihumanize converts nepalidatetime to nepali human readable form

from nepali.datetime import nepalihumanize  

Creating new object

# object from nepali datetime
ndt =
humanize_str = nepalihumanize(ndt)

# object from python datetime
dt =
humanize_str = nepalihumanize(dt)

Humanize with threshold
returns date in nepali characters if more than threshold(in seconds) else returns humanize form

humanize_str = nepalihumanize(ndt, threshold=60) # 60 seconds

# custom format after threshold
humanize_str = nepalihumanize(ndt, threshold=60, format='%Y-%m-%d') # 60 seconds

For Django Template
