Pandas: Remove whitespaces, left sided whitespaces and right sided whitespaces of the string values of a given pandas series

Pandas: String and Regular Expression Exercise-2 with Solution

Write a Pandas program to remove whitespaces, left sided whitespaces and right sided whitespaces of the string values of a given pandas series.

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

import pandas as pd
color1 = pd.Index([' Green', 'Black ', ' Red ', 'White', ' Pink '])
print("Original series:")
print(color1)
print("\nRemove whitespace")
print(color1.str.strip())
print("\nRemove left sided whitespace")
print(color1.str.lstrip())
print("\nRemove Right sided whitespace")
print(color1.str.rstrip())

Sample Output:

Original series:
Index([' Green', 'Black ', ' Red ', 'White', ' Pink '], dtype='object')

Remove whitespace
Index(['Green', 'Black', 'Red', 'White', 'Pink'], dtype='object')

Remove left sided whitespace
Index(['Green', 'Black ', 'Red ', 'White', 'Pink '], dtype='object')

Remove Right sided whitespace
Index([' Green', 'Black', ' Red', 'White', ' Pink'], dtype='object')

Python: Time library

Time library provides lots of time related functions and methods and is good to know whether you're developing a website or apps and games or working with data science or trading financial markets. Time is essential in most development pursuits and Python's standard time library comes very handy for that.

Let's check out a few simple examples:

moment=time.strftime("%Y-%b-%d__%H_%M_%S",time.localtime())

import time
time_now=time.strftime("%H:%M:%S",time.localtime())
print(time_now)
date_now=time.strftime("%Y-%b-%d",time.localtime())
print(date_now)

Output:

11:36:34
