Text progressbar library for python.
This library provides a text mode progressbar. This is tipically used to
display the progress of a long running operation, providing a visual clue that
processing is underway.
The ProgressBar class manages the progress, and the format of the line is given
by a number of widgets. A widget is an object that may display diferently
depending on the state of the progress. There are three types of widget: - a
string, which always shows itself; - a ProgressBarWidget, which may return a
diferent value every time it's update method is called; and - a
ProgressBarWidgetHFill, which is like ProgressBarWidget, except it expands to
fill the remaining width of the line.
The progressbar module is very easy to use, yet very powerful. And
automatically supports features like auto-resizing when the terminal size is
changed. It's also efficient, because the text is only updated if need, with a
minimum overhead in the case there is no need for updating.
It was tested and works under windows, linux and macosx. And should also work
in many other untested operating systems.
You may get it from pypi: http://cheeseshop.python.org/pypi/progressbar
