There doesn’t seem to be a way to get a Unix timestamp directly from a datetime object in Python, the best workaround example I could find is:
from datetime import datetime
now = datetime.now()
u = str(long(time.mktime(now.timetuple())))
This gets the timestamp as a string, it seems a bit long winded, so if anybody knows a better way please let me know!
