pyarrow.compute.strftime(timestamps, /, format='%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S', locale='C', *, options=None, memory_pool=None)#

Format temporal values according to a format string.

For each input value, emit a formatted string. The time format string and locale can be set using StrftimeOptions. The output precision of the โ€œ%Sโ€ (seconds) format code depends on the input time precision: it is an integer for timestamps with second precision, a real number with the required number of fractional digits for higher precisions. Null values emit null. An error is returned if the values have a defined timezone but it cannot be found in the timezone database, or if the specified locale does not exist on this system.
