In Python, how to get the epoch time (the number of seconds since epoch)?
In Python, you can get the epoch time by calling
time.time() which return a floating number:
import time print time.time()
If you would like to get only the number of seconds, you may convert it to an integer.
One example is as follows.
$ python3 Python 3.8.5 (default, Jul 28 2020, 12:59:40) [GCC 9.3.0] on linux Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>> import time >>> t = time.time() >>> print(t) 1603532174.7085965 >>> print(int(t)) 1603532174
