>>> import datetime, pytz

>>> JalaliDateTime.now()
JalaliDateTime(1395, 4, 18, 1, 43, 24, 720505)

Format

Based on python strftime() behavior

>>> from persiantools.jdatetime import JalaliDate, JalaliDateTime
>>> import pytz

>>> JalaliDate(1367, 2, 14).isoformat()
'1367-02-14'

>>> JalaliDate(1395, 3, 1).strftime("%Y/%m/%d")
'1395/03/01'

>>> JalaliDateTime(1369, 7, 1, 14, 0, 10, 0, pytz.utc).strftime("%c")
'Yekshanbeh 01 Mehr 1369 14:00:10'

>>> JalaliDateTime.now(pytz.utc).strftime("%I:%M:%S.%f %p %z %Z")
'01:49:22.518523 PM +0000 UTC'

Digit/Character converter

>>> from persiantools import characters, digits

>>> digits.en_to_fa("0987654321")
'۰۹۸۷۶۵۴۳۲۱'

>>> digits.ar_to_fa("٠٩٨٧٦٥٤٣٢١")   # or digits.ar_to_fa(u"٠٩٨٧٦٥٤٣٢١")
'۰۹۸۷۶۵۴۳۲۱'

>>> digits.fa_to_en("۰۹۸۷۶۵۴۳۲۱")
'0987654321'

'کیک'

Operators
