Create a Python timedelta from text.
from datetime import timedelta
import logging
logger = logging.getLogger(__name__)
def get_time_delta_from_text(text):
kwargs = dict()
for pair in text.split(','):
name, sep, value = pair.partition('=')
try:
kwargs[name] = int(value)
except ValueError as e:
logger.error('Non-integer value (%s) for %s.', value, name)
raise e
return timedelta(**kwargs)
