Examples

Create an instance of timestamp type:

>>> import pyarrow as pa
>>> pa.timestamp('us')
TimestampType(timestamp[us])
>>> pa.timestamp('s', tz='America/New_York')
TimestampType(timestamp[s, tz=America/New_York])
>>> pa.timestamp('s', tz='+07:30')
TimestampType(timestamp[s, tz=+07:30])

Use timestamp type when creating a scalar object:

>>> from datetime import datetime
>>> pa.scalar(datetime(2012, 1, 1), type=pa.timestamp('s', tz='UTC'))
<pyarrow.TimestampScalar: datetime.datetime(2012, 1, 1, 0, 0, tzinfo=<UTC>)>
>>> pa.scalar(datetime(2012, 1, 1), type=pa.timestamp('us'))
<pyarrow.TimestampScalar: datetime.datetime(2012, 1, 1, 0, 0)>
