How do I get the day of week given a date?


Use weekday():

>>> import datetime>>> datetime.datetime.today()datetime.datetime(2012, 3, 23, 23, 24, 55, 173504)>>> datetime.datetime.today().weekday()4

From the documentation:

Return the day of the week as an integer, where Monday is 0 and Sunday is 6.


If you'd like to have the date in English:

from datetime import dateimport calendarmy_date = date.today()calendar.day_name[my_date.weekday()]  #'Wednesday'


If you'd like to have the date in English:

>>> from datetime import datetime>>> datetime.today().strftime('%A')'Wednesday'
