Python Arrow Module: Get string representing the date, controlled by an explicit format string

Arrow Module: Exercise-26 with Solution

Write a Python program to get string representing the date, controlled by an explicit format string.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

import arrow
a = arrow.utcnow()
print("Current datetime:")
print(a)
print("\nString representing the date, controlled by an explicit format string:")
print(arrow.utcnow().strftime('%d-%m-%Y %H:%M:%S'))
print(arrow.utcnow().strftime('%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S'))
print(arrow.utcnow().strftime('%Y-%d-%m %H:%M:%S'))

Sample Output:

Current datetime:
2019-06-04T07:20:10.079600+00:00

String representing the date, controlled by an explicit format string:
04-06-2019 07:20:10
2019-06-04 07:20:10
2019-04-06 07:20:10
