Part 1:

Part 2:

import logging
import time
import aoc_common.aoc_commons as ac

YEAR = 2017
DAY = 1

locations = ac.get_locations(__file__)
logger = ac.retrieve_console_logger(locations.script_name)
# td.setup_file_logging(logger, locations.output_dir)
    ac.write_puzzle_input_file(YEAR, DAY, locations)
except ValueError as e:

def main():
    with open(locations.sample_input_file, mode="rt") as f:
    # with open(locations.input_file, mode="rt") as f:        
        data = f.read().splitlines()

if __name__ == "__main__":
    t1 = time.perf_counter()
    t2 = time.perf_counter()
    logger.info("Execution time: %.3f seconds", t2 - t1)

If we run this template code, the output looks like this:
