How can I add N milliseconds to a datetime in Python

I'm setting a datetime var as such:

fulldate = datetime.datetime.strptime(date + ' ' + time, "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S.%f")

where date and time are string of the appropriate nature for datetime. How can I increment this datetime by N milliseconds?

Use timedelta

To increment by 500 ms:

fulldate = datetime.datetime.strptime(date + ' ' + time, "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S.%f")
fulldate = fulldate + datetime.timedelta(milliseconds=500)

You can use it to increment minutes, hours, days etc. Documentation:

https://docs.python.org/2/library/datetime.html#timedelta-objects


use timedelta:

timedelta(microseconds=1000) #1 milli second
