python3-dateutil – powerful extensions to the standard datetime module in Python 3

The dateutil package extends the standard datetime module with:

  • computing of relative deltas (next month, next year, next Monday, last week of month, etc);
  • computing of relative deltas between two given date and/or datetime objects
  • computing of dates based on very flexible recurrence rules, using a superset of the iCalendar specification. Parsing of RFC strings is supported as well.
  • generic parsing of dates in almost any string format
  • timezone (tzinfo) implementations for tzfile(5) format files (/etc/localtime, /usr/share/zoneinfo, etc), TZ environment string (in all known formats), iCalendar format files, given ranges (with help from relative deltas), local machine timezone, fixed offset timezone, UTC timezone
  • computing of Easter Sunday dates for any given year, using Western, Orthodox or Julian algorithms
