Calendar using Python

Calendar using Python 4 Methods

In this post, we will see how to create a calendar using Python. We will learn 4 different methods to create calendar using Python. For all 4 programs, we will be using a famous module named calendar(inbuilt with Python). This module mimics the Georgian calendar. Two methods will be used to create text-based calendars and the last two methods will be GUI based. We will understand the programs using comments. Let’s start.

Creating text-based calendar of a year using Python

# importing calendar module
import calendar
# year of calendar, you can also take input from user=> int(input())
year = 2022
# printing calendar
print(calendar.calendar(year))

Output:

Creating text-based calendar of a month using Python

# importing calendar module
import calendar
# year of calendar
year = 2022
# month of calendar
month = 10
# printing calendar
print(calendar.month(year, month))

Output:

Now, to create GUI-based calendars, we will be using the Tkinter module.

Creating GUI-based calendar of a year using Python

# importing tkinter
from tkinter import *
# importing calendar module
import calendar
# initializing tkinter
root = Tk()
# setting title of our Gui
root.title("My Own Gui Calendar")
# year for which we want the calendar to be shown on our Gui
year = 2022
# storing 2022 year calendar data inside myCal
myCal = calendar.calendar(year)
# showing calendar data using label widget
cal_year = Label(root, text=myCal, font="Consolas 10 bold")
# packing the Label widget
cal_year.pack()
# running the program in ready state
root.mainloop()

Output:

Creating GUI-based calendar of a month using Python

# importing tkinter
from tkinter import *
# importing calendar module
import calendar
# initializing tkinter
root = Tk()
# setting title of our Gui
root.title("My Own Gui Calendar")
# year for which we want the calendar to be shown on our Gui
year = 2022
# month of year
month = 10
# storing 2022 year and 10th month calendar data inside myCal
myCal = calendar.month(year, month)
# showing calendar data using label widget
cal_year = Label(root, text=myCal, font="Consolas 10 bold")
# packing the Label widget
cal_year.pack()
# running the program in ready state
root.mainloop()

Output:
