    1.1.8 • Public • Published

    Flexible ascii progress bar.

    Installation

    $ npm install progress

    Usage

    First we create a ProgressBar, giving it a format string as well as the total, telling the progress bar when it will be considered complete. After that all we need to do is tick() appropriately.

    var ProgressBar = require('progress');
     
    var bar = new ProgressBar(':bar', { total: 10 });
    var timer = setInterval(function () {
      bar.tick();
      if (bar.complete) {
        console.log('\ncomplete\n');
        clearInterval(timer);
      }
    }, 100);

    Options

    These are keys in the options object you can pass to the progress bar along with total as seen in the example above.

    • total total number of ticks to complete
    • width the displayed width of the progress bar defaulting to total
    • stream the output stream defaulting to stderr
    • complete completion character defaulting to "="
    • incomplete incomplete character defaulting to "-"
    • clear option to clear the bar on completion defaulting to false
    • callback optional function to call when the progress bar completes

    Tokens

    These are tokens you can use in the format of your progress bar.

    • :bar the progress bar itself
    • :current current tick number
    • :total total ticks
    • :elapsed time elapsed in seconds
    • :percent completion percentage
    • :eta estimated completion time in seconds

    Examples

    Download

    In our download example each tick has a variable influence, so we pass the chunk length which adjusts the progress bar appropriately relative to the total length.

    var ProgressBar = require('../');
    var https = require('https');
     
    var req = https.request({
      host: 'download.github.com',
      port: 443,
      path: '/visionmedia-node-jscoverage-0d4608a.zip'
    });
     
    req.on('response', function(res){
      var len = parseInt(res.headers['content-length'], 10);
     
      console.log();
      var bar = new ProgressBar('  downloading [:bar] :percent :etas', {
        complete: '=',
        incomplete: ' ',
        width: 20,
        total: len
      });
     
      res.on('data', function (chunk) {
        bar.tick(chunk.length);
      });
     
      res.on('end', function () {
        console.log('\n');
      });
    });
     
    req.end();

    The above example result in a progress bar like the one below.
