|When using something like datetime.datetime.now().isoformat() you would expect to get the timezone on the end or a trailing Z.
However both the .now() and .utcnow() only return naive objects with tz_info of None
If you don't want to use 3rd party libraries (solution for longest time until Python 3.2+) you can use the following tricks:
LOCAL_TIMEZONE = datetime.datetime.now(datetime.timezone.utc).astimezone().tzinfo enhanced_now = datetime.datetime.now(LOCAL_TIMEZONE) enhanced_now_utc = datetime.datetime.now(datetime.timezone.utc)
