Python’s strftime directives

Python’s strftime directives is a thing that I don’t always need, but when I do, I get frustrated finding it on the net. So here is a shortcut: http://strftime.org/.

I also copy/paste it here for future references:

%a 	Locale’s abbreviated weekday name.
%A 	Locale’s full weekday name.
%b 	Locale’s abbreviated month name.
%B 	Locale’s full month name.
%c 	Locale’s appropriate date and time representation.
%d 	Day of the month as a decimal number [01,31].
%f 	Microsecond as a decimal number [0,999999], zero-padded on the left
%H 	Hour (24-hour clock) as a decimal number [00,23].
%I 	Hour (12-hour clock) as a decimal number [01,12].
%j 	Day of the year as a decimal number [001,366].
%m 	Month as a decimal number [01,12].

%p 	Locale’s equivalent of either AM or PM.
%S 	Second as a decimal number [00,61].
%U 	Week number of the year (Sunday as the first day of the week) as a decimal number [00,53]. All days in a new year preceding the first Sunday are considered to be in week 0.
