Tutorial :How to convert datetime to string in python in django



Question:

I have a datetime object at my model. I am sending it to the view, but in html i don't know what to write in order to format it.

I am trying

{{ item.date.strftime("%Y-%m-%d")|escape }}  

but I get

TemplateSyntaxError: Could not parse some characters: item.date.strftime|("%Y-%m-%d")||escape  

when I am just using

{{ item.date|escape }}  

it's working, but now with the format I want.

Any suggestions?


Solution:1

Try using the built-in Django date format filter instead:

{{ item.date|date:"Y M d" }}
