Or, perhaps a bit simpler:

'date': datetime.datetime.fromtimestamp(article.date).strftime("%d %b %Y

or simpler still and not requiring import of datetime (HyperArch.py
already imports time

'date': time.strftime("%d %b %Y %H:%M:%S", time.localtime(article.date))

Note that the article instance has attributes

#  datestr  : The posting date, in human-readable format
#  date     : The posting date, in purely numeric format
