Welcome to Progress Bar’s documentation!

Text progress bar library for Python.


NOTE: This version has been completely rewritten and might not be 100% compatible with the old version. If you encounter any problems while using it please let me know: https://github.com/WoLpH/python-progressbar/issues

A text progress bar is typically used to display the progress of a long running operation, providing a visual cue that processing is underway.

The ProgressBar class manages the current progress, and the format of the line is given by a number of widgets. A widget is an object that may display differently depending on the state of the progress bar. There are many types of widgets:

  • Timer
  • ETA
  • AdaptiveETA
  • FileTransferSpeed
  • AdaptiveTransferSpeed
  • AnimatedMarker
  • Counter
  • Percentage
  • FormatLabel
  • SimpleProgress
  • Bar
  • ReverseBar
  • BouncingBar
  • RotatingMarker

The progressbar module is very easy to use, yet very powerful. It will also automatically enable features like auto-resizing when the system supports it.
