How to encode Days of a week in Python?

This recipe helps you encode Days of a week in Python


Recipe Objective

If tou have given a date then how you can tell its day using python ?

So this is the recipe on how we can encode Days of a week in Python.

Step 1 - Import the library

import pandas as pd

We have only imported pandas which is needed.

Step 2 - Creating Dates

We have created a series of date with freqency as Months. dates = pd.Series(pd.date_range("02/10/2020", periods=3, freq="M"))

Step 3 - Getting Days of the dates

We can find the days by using a pandas function dt.weekday_name. We have used this on the datas dataset to get the result. print(dates) print(dates.dt.weekday_name) So the output comes as

0   2020-02-29
1   2020-03-31
2   2020-04-30
dtype: datetime64[ns]

0    Saturday
1     Tuesday
2    Thursday
dtype: object
