I want to print a timer in the console to optimize my script and see how long it takes to run the script.


This is one of the fastest way I know:

import time
import random

then = time.time() #Time before the operations start


now = time.time() #Time after it finished

print("It took: ", now-then, " seconds")

time.time() Will give you the current time in seconds. There are other way of doing it, but this is one of the best. I have always used this and it gave me no problem at all.
