Hello dear readers! Welcome back to another edition of our tutorial on Python. In this tutorial guide, we are going to be studying about the Python Time localtime() method.

Python Time localtime() function is quite similar to gmtime() but it converts number of seconds to local time. If secs is not provided, the current time as returned by time() is used. The dst flag is set to 1 when DST applies to the given time.

time.localtime( [ sec ] )


Parameter Details

  • sec - Number of seconds that are to be converted into struct_time representation.

Example

The following below is a simple example -

#!/usr/bin/python
import time

print "time.localtime() : %s" % time.localtime()

Output
Below is the output of the above example -

time.localtime() : time.struct_time(tm_year=2020,  tm_mon=7,  tm_mday=15,  tm_hours=16,  tm_min=3,  tm_sec=58,  tm_wday=2,  tm_yday=197,  tm_isdst=0)
