I have been using Flask to teach myself some coding and develop a web application for people with high blood pressure to track their daily blood pressure readings.
I wanted to find a way to automatically display the time when a user takes a blood pressure reading. It was quite simple.
Use strftime() to display Time and Date
The strftime() method returns a string displaying date and time using date, time or datetime object.
In your .py file you have to import time. Below are some examples to print time in different formats:
print (time.strftime("%H:%M:%S")) - Displays time in 24hr format. print (time.strftime("%I:%M:%S")) - Displays time in 12hr format.
See more examples in the Python official documentation. Enjoy!
