Python | Pandas Timestamp.today
  • Last Updated : 27 Jan, 2019

Python is a great language for doing data analysis, primarily because of the fantastic ecosystem of data-centric python packages. Pandas is one of those packages and makes importing and analyzing data much easier.

Pandas Timestamp.today() function return the current time in the local timezone. This differs from datetime.today() in that it can be localized to a passed timezone.

Syntax :Timestamp.today(cls, tz=None)

Parameters :
tz : Timezone to localize to

Return : today’s time



Example #1: Use Timestamp.today() function to return the current time in the local timezone.




# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Create the Timestamp object
ts = pd.Timestamp(year = 2011,  month = 11, day = 21
                  hour = 10, second = 49, tz = 'US/Central'
  
# Print the Timestamp object
print(ts)

Output :

Now we will use the Timestamp.today() function to return the current time in the local timezone.




# return current time
ts.today()

Output :

As we can see in the output, the Timestamp.today() function has returned the current time in the local timezone.

Example #2: Use Timestamp.today() function to return the current time in the local timezone.






# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Create the Timestamp object
ts = pd.Timestamp(year = 2009, month = 5, day = 31
                  hour = 4, second = 49, tz = 'Europe/Berlin')
  
# Print the Timestamp object
print(ts)

Output :

Now we will use the Timestamp.today() function to return the current time in the local timezone.




# return current time
ts.today()

Output :

As we can see in the output, the Timestamp.today() function has returned the current time in the local timezone.
