from datetime import datetime, timedeltanow = = now + timedelta(days=7)print(now) # 2021-04-15 17:55:58.794208print(after_a_week) # 2021-04-22 17:55:58.794208

String to time

Python 3.7+

from datetime import datetimedate_string = '2021-04-19 18:18:39.458818'print(datetime.fromisoformat(date_string))

Python 3.7 and below

from datetime import datetimedef fromisoformat(date_string):"""datetime string to datetime"""return datetime.strptime(date_string, '%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S.%f')date_string = '2021-04-19 18:18:39.458818'print(fromisoformat(date_string))

Time to string (time as filename)

The file name cannot have a colon :

import localeimport datetimelocale.setlocale(locale.LC_CTYPE, 'Chinese') # Set the localeprint('%Y/%m/%d'))print('%Y year %m month %d day'))print('%Y%m%d%H%M%S'))print('%Y-%m-%d_%H-%M-%S_%f'))# 2021/08/20# 20 Aug 2021#20210820141153# 2021-12-15_11-40-27_740240

An error may be reported on Linux: locale.Error: unsupported locale setting

Use this

import datetimenow ='%Y{y}%m{m}%d{d}').format(y='year', m='month', d='day'))

Convert with timestamp

import datetimeprint(datetime.datetime(2021, 12, 7).timestamp()) # 1638806400.0print(datetime.datetime.fromtimestamp(1638806400)) # 2021-12-07 00:00:00
