Project description

Utility to help rewrite previous line of text,

Usefull and keep user informed of advancement, and keep a reactive command line interface

import time
from overprint import overprint

with overprint() as (reprint, print):
    print('step 1')
    for i in range(10):
        reprint('.'* ( i % 3 +1))

# will display 3 animated dots

The reprinted line will keep moving down while you use the normal print statement which does not change normal programming flow.

overprint even provide you with an option to replace (temporarily) the built-in print statement in case you do not control the underlying libraries.

use python -m overprint for a demo
