and use

from pqdm.processes import pqdm
# If you want threads instead:
# from pqdm.threads import pqdm

args = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
# args = range(1,6) would also work

def square(a):
    return a*a

result = pqdm(args, square, n_jobs=2)

For more examples variants check the Usage section of the docs.


  • parellize your tqdm runs using processes or threads thanks to concurrent.futures,
  • just import pqdm from pqdm.threads or pqdm.processes to start,
