The fromtimestamp() function is used to return the date corresponding to a specified timestamp.

Note: Here the timestamp is ranging from the year 1970 to the year 2038, and this function does not consider leap seconds if any present in the timestamp. This function is a class method.

Syntax: @classmethod fromtimestamp(timestamp)

Parameters: This function accepts a parameter which is illustrated below:

  • timestamp: This is the specified timestamp for which the date is going to be returned.

Return values: This function returns the date corresponding to a specified timestamp.

Example 1: Getting a date corresponding to an Epoch & Unix Timestamp. 

Python3




# Python3 code to demonstrate
# Getting a date corresponding
# to a specified timestamp
  
# Importing datetime and time module 
import datetime
import time
  
# Calling the time() function
# to return current time
Todays_time = time.time()
  
# Printing today's time
print(Todays_time)
  
  
# Calling the fromtimestamp() function
# to get date from the current time
date_From_CurrentTime = datetime.date.fromtimestamp(Todays_time);
  
# Printing the current date
print("Date for the Timestamp is: %s"%date_From_CurrentTime);

Output:

1627279008.95
Date for the Timestamp is: 2021-07-26

Example 2: Getting a date corresponding to a specified timestamp.

# Initializing a timestamp value
Timestamp = 1323456464;
  
# Calling the fromtimestamp() function
# over the above specified Timestamp
date_From_Timestamp = datetime.date.fromtimestamp(Timestamp);
