A simple, light-weight and customizable progress bar for command-line applications
- Easy to use with only a few methods.
How to Use
Simply do a
require and create a process as
var fadedProgressbar = require('faded-progressbar'); var newProcess = fadedProgressbar.newProcess("Some long running process", 20);
The first argument is the process title that is to be displayed on the console, the second is the total number of sub-tasks in the process.
To print the start of the process, simply invoke
When the process progresses (in small steps), invoke
updateProgress() passing in the new progress number.
When the process ends, invoke
end() which prints 100% against the process title and shows a completed progress bar.
You are free to use the console to print any logs while a process is active, faded-progressbar takes care of maintaining a single progress bar at the end of the console automatically.
By default, the package replaces the default
console.log() method with an internal one, which is almost the same but with a few extra functionalities. You can turn this feature off by invoking
Once turned off, you would be able to use the default
console.log() again. This should not be required in usual cases though.
You can also enable the feature with the exact opposite method:
