How to Import timedelta in Python (2 Examples)
In this Python tutorial, you’ll learn how to import timedelta from the datetime module.
The tutorial looks as follows:
It’s time to dive into the examples!
Example 1: Importing timedelta
In Example 1, I’ll demonstrate the easiest way to import timedelta.
from datetime import timedelta # Importing timedelta
The “from” keyword is used to specify the parent module and the “import” parameter is used to specify the part of the module that should be imported. In this case, we want to import timedelta from the datetime module.
Example 2: Importing timedelta with an Alias
Example 2 explains how to import timedelta with an alias.
from datetime import timedelta as td
In this case, the “as” keyword is employed to set an alias to be used in the Python script. From then on, timedelta is called “td”.
