Progress Bar

A nice wrapper around TJ Holowaychuck's node-progress with chaining, domains, and steps



  • Install: npm install --save progressbar
  • Module: require('progressbar')
  • Editions

    This package is published with the following editions:

    • progressbar aliases progressbar/index.js which uses Editions to automatically select the correct edition for the consumers environment
    • progressbar/source/index.js is Source + ESNext + Require
    • progressbar/es2015/index.js is Babel Compiled + ES2015 + Require

    Older environments may need Babel's Polyfill or something similar.

    const progress = require('progressbar').create().step('the task you are currently performing')
    // use an array of steps that execute one second after each other 
    // as if we do them all instantly 
    // you won't see the progress bar as it will be instant 
        () => progress.setTotal(5),
        () => progress.setTick(1),
        () => progress.setTick(2),
        () => progress.setTick(3),
        () => progress.addTick(),
        () => progress.addTick(),
        () => progress.finish()  // remove and destroy the progress bar 
    ].forEach(function (step, index) {
        setTimeout(step, index * 1000)
    • step(step) - set the step, resets the total and the tick
    • setTick(ticks) - set the completed ticks
    • addTick() - add 1 to the completed ticks
    • getTick() - get the completed ticks
    • setTotal(total) - set the total ticks
    • addTotal() - add 1 to the total ticks
