How to get current time in python and break up into year, month, day, hour, minute?
I would like to get the current time in Python and assign them into variables like
minute. How can this be done in Python 2.7?
datetime module is your friend:
import datetime now = datetime.datetime.now() print now.year, now.month, now.day, now.hour, now.minute, now.second # 2015 5 6 8 53 40
You don't need separate variables, the attributes on the returned
datetime object have all you need.
