I have tried a lot. Banning words doesn’t help, removing certain characters doesn’t help.
The datetime module doesn’t have a directive for this. It has things like
%d which will give you today’s day, for example
I have a date in the format of ‘
Tuesday 24th January‘ but I need it to be ‘
Tuesday 24 January‘.
Is there a way to remove
th. Or is there an even better way?
EDIT: even removing
rd would remove it from Saturday. So that doesn’t work either.
You can use a regex:
import re d = 'Tuesday 24th January' d = re.sub(r'(\d+)(st|nd|rd|th)', r'\1', d) # \1 to restore the captured day print(d) # Output Tuesday 24 January
For Saturday 21st January:
d = 'Saturday 21st January' d = re.sub(r'(\d+)(st|nd|rd|th)', r'\1', d) print(d) # Output Saturday 21 January
