How do I tell the time difference in minutes between two
>>> import datetime >>> first_time = datetime.datetime.now() >>> later_time = datetime.datetime.now() >>> difference = later_time - first_time >>> seconds_in_day = 24 * 60 * 60 datetime.timedelta(0, 8, 562000) >>> divmod(difference.days * seconds_in_day + difference.seconds, 60) (0, 8) # 0 minutes, 8 seconds
Subtracting the later time from the first time
difference = later_time - first_time creates a datetime object that only holds the difference.
In the example above it is 0 minutes, 8 seconds and 562000 microseconds.
