I have the following python code:
from django.db import models from datetime import datetime class Poll(models.Model): question = models.CharField(max_length=200) pub_date = models.DateTimeField('date published') def __unicode__(self): return self.question def was_published_today(self): return self.pub_date.date() == datetime.date.today()
In a python shell, I am trying to run:
p = Poll.objects.get(pk=1) p.was_published_today()
The first line works fine but the second line gives me this error:
AttributeError: 'method_descriptor' object has no attribute 'today'
You probably want "import datetime", not "from datetime import datetime".
"date" is a class on the datetime module, but it is also a method on the "datetime.datetime" class.
The top answer is correct, but if you don't want to import all of datetime you can write
from datetime import date
and then replace
