Time delay in Python

The Problem

How do I make a time delay in Python?

The Solution

We can do this using the sleep() function in Python’s built-in time module. This function will pause execution by a provided number of seconds. For example:

from time import sleep print("Waiting 1 minute...") sleep(60) print("1 minute has passed.")
