How I Import Python’s datetime Module

2019-09-12 Old Father Datetime

Python’s datetime module risks a whole bunch of name confusion:

For these reasons, I use this import idiom and recommend you do too:

import datetime as dt

Rather than any of:

import datetime
from datetime import datetime  # or time, timezone

Then in your code, dt.datetime, dt.time, and dt.timezone will be unambiguous.

Hope this helps you save time understanding code,
