Calendar in Python Program

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

Python has a built-in module called calendar to work with calendars. We are going to learn about the calendar module in this article.

The week in the calendar modules starts on Monday and ends on Sunday. The module calendar follows the Gregorian calendar. Let's see some useful methods of the calendar module.

Getting Year Calendar

If you have to get the calendar of the specific year, then create the instance of the class calendar.calendar(year) and print it. Let's see one example.

Example

 Live Demo

# importing the calendar module
import calendar
# initializing the year
year = 2019
# printing the calendar
print(calendar.calendar(2019))

Output

If you run the above code, you will get the following results.

We can get different types of outputs using the calendar.calendar(year) instance. Try to learn those methods using the dir().

Getting Month Calendar

If you have to get the calendar of the specific month, then use the method calendar.month(year, month_number) and print it. Let's see one example.

Example

 Live Demo

# importing the calendar module
import calendar
# initializing the yearn and month number
year = 2000
month = 1
# getting the calendar of the month
print(calendar.month(year, month))

Output

If you run the above program, you will get the following results.
