polars.Expr.dt.with_time_unit#

Expr.dt.with_time_unit(time_unit: TimeUnit) Expr[source]#

Set time unit of an expression of dtype Datetime or Duration.

Deprecated since version 0.20.5: First cast to Int64 and then cast to the desired data type.

This does not modify underlying data, and should be used to fix an incorrect time unit.

Parameters:
time_unit{‘ns’, ‘us’, ‘ms’}

Unit of time for the Datetime or Duration expression.

Examples

>>> from datetime import datetime
>>> df = pl.DataFrame(
...     {
...         "date": pl.datetime_range(
...             datetime(2001, 1, 1),
...             datetime(2001, 1, 3),
...             "1d",
...             time_unit="ns",
...             eager=True,
...         )
...     }
... )
>>> df.select(
...     pl.col("date"),
...     pl.col("date").dt.with_time_unit("us").alias("time_unit_us"),
... )
