from datetime import date

today = date.today()
print("Today's date:", today)




from datetime import date

today = date.today()

# dd/mm/YY
d1 = today.strftime("%d/%m/%Y")
print("d1 =", d1)

# Textual month, day and year	
d2 = today.strftime("%B %d, %Y")
print("d2 =", d2)

# mm/dd/y
d3 = today.strftime("%m/%d/%y")
print("d3 =", d3)

# Month abbreviation, day and year	
d4 = today.strftime("%b-%d-%Y")
print("d4 =", d4)

d1 = 16/09/2019
d2 = September 16, 2019
d3 = 09/16/19
d4 = Sep-16-2019

 

Current Date and Time

from datetime import datetime

# datetime object containing current date and time
now = datetime.now()
 
print("now =", now)

# dd/mm/YY H:M:S
dt_string = now.strftime("%d/%m/%Y %H:%M:%S")
print("date and time =", dt_string)	

 

String to Date Format

from datetime import datetime
date_time_str = '18/09/19 01:55:19'
date_time_obj = datetime.strptime(date_time_str, '%d/%m/%y %H:%M:%S')



from datetime import datetime
date_time_str = '180919 015519'
date_time_obj = datetime.strptime(date_time_str, '%d/%m/%y %H:%M:%S')

 

Date between 2 dates

from datetime import date, timedelta

sdate = date(2008, 8, 15)   # start date
edate = date(2008, 9, 15)   # end date

delta = edate - sdate       # as timedelta

for i in range(delta.days + 1):
    day = sdate + timedelta(days=i)
    print(day)
