Change date and time format in Python

0 votes

Hi. I am new to Python and I am writing a script. What I am trying to do is, get the current time and store it so that I can use it in a logic somewhere else. I am using the following code to get the current time.

import datatime 

time= datetime.datetime.now()
print(time)

This script is returning the time and date in the below format:

2019-05-08 16:29:14.960470

I want to store time and date separately in two different variables: time and date.

How to do this?

Try the following code:

date=time.split(‘ ’)

time=date[1].split(‘.’)

date=date[0]

time=time[0]

print(date, time)
