It is built in to odoo and sometimes uses babel under hood.

For today jobs fields.Date.context_today(record with tz context, optional timestamp) is my general go to available in views as context_today.

odoo.tools.format_datetime or something like that does it too for datetime plus locale specific representation as string.

There is some more. Check fields.Date* and odoo.tools 

In record rules it is tons harder but if you have the patience you can handroll a very ugly rule using time module.

Regards from UTC+13.

i would be curious if there is one, or contribute for developing one

UTC --> user timezone is a real real pain to develop. particularly when trying to get "today" jobs

I think I've seen somewhere under OCA a module to add generic methods to convert datetime between UTC and user's timezone, but I somehow can't find it now.  A pointer would be appreciated.
