Python – get current date

Hi, here is a sample for getting current date and print it. There are various string formating that you can choose regarding to your needs.

In order to drop the leading zero (01/09/2018 > 1/9/2018) you can apply “-” or “#”. I added a comment for this.

from datetime import date
#gun=date.today()
#gun1=gun.strftime("%Y/%m/%d")
#print(gun.strftime("%Y/%m/%d"))
#print(gun1)
def get_todays_date():
    gun = date.today()
    gun1 = gun.strftime("%Y/%#m/%#d")  #windows pc'lerde # , linux vb. de # yerine -
    return gun1
print(get_todays_date())
