tzinfo implementations for Psycopg 2¶
Deprecated since version 2.9: The module will be dropped in psycopg 2.10. Use
This module holds two different tzinfo implementations that can be used as the
tzinfo argument to
datetime constructors, directly passed to
Psycopg functions or used to set the
cursor.tzinfo_factory attribute in
- class psycopg2.tz.FixedOffsetTimezone(offset=None, name=None)¶
Fixed offset in minutes east from UTC.
This is exactly the implementation found in Python 2.3.x documentation, with a small change to the
__init__()method to allow for pickling and a default name in the form
sis the sign.).
The implementation also caches instances. During creation, if a FixedOffsetTimezone instance has previously been created with the same offset and name that instance will be returned. This saves memory and improves comparability.
Changed in version 2.9: The constructor can take either a timedelta or a number of minutes of offset. Previously only minutes were supported.
- class psycopg2.tz.LocalTimezone¶
Platform idea of local timezone.
This is the exact implementation from the Python 2.3 documentation.
