How can I get the number of days in a current month?


Suppose user inputs Jan 2012 then it should give 31 as output

and if the input is Feb 2012 then the output should be 29.

import calendar
returns the number of days for a month, year
def get_nb_days(str_date):

    # maps the month name abbreviation to the month number
    dict_months = {v: k for k,v in     enumerate(calendar.month_abbr)}

    # extracts the month and year from the input date
    str_month , str_year = str_date.split(' ')
    year = int(str_year)
    month = dict_months[str_month]

    # gives the number of days for year month
    nb_days = calendar.monthrange(year,month)[1]

    return nb_days

Hope my answer helps !
