Python: Get a list of dates between two dates

Python Datetime: Exercise-50 with Solution

Write a Python program to get a list of dates between two dates.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

from datetime import timedelta, date

def daterange(date1, date2):
    for n in range(int ((date2 - date1).days)+1):
        yield date1 + timedelta(n)

start_dt = date(2015, 12, 20)
end_dt = date(2016, 1, 11)
for dt in daterange(start_dt, end_dt):
    print(dt.strftime("%Y-%m-%d"))
	

Sample Output:

2015-12-20

Python: Tips of the Day

Returns the symmetric difference between two lists, after applying the provided function to each list element of both:

Example:

def tips_symmetric_difference_by(p, q, fn):
  _p, _q = set(map(fn, p)), set(map(fn, q))
  return [item for item in p if fn(item) not in _q] + [item for item in q if fn(item) not in _p]
from math import floor
print(tips_symmetric_difference_by([4.2, 2.4], [4.6, 6.8],floor))

Output:

[2.4, 6.8]
