Python decorator to measure function's execution time

I know we do some manual debugging from time to time. I got inspired from some Stack Overflow answers and blogposts to write this decorator

Now, you just need to import it in your code and write something like:

def foo:
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode


Total execution time foo: 15 ms
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

If you want a smaller time unit, use 1000000 instead of 1000 factor to get microseconds (μ)

I hope this can be any help.
