cp and mv with a progressbar

Project description

What it looks like:

See pycp --help for detailed usage.

Development happens on github


pycp works both for any version greater than Python 3.4, and is installable with pip.

For Archlinux, a PKGBUILD is also available on AUR


  • Implementation heavily inspired by the wonderful library progressbar by Nilton Volpato.
  • I also maintain a similary tool written in rust called rusync. It has a different set of features (so you may want to stick with pycpy), but is much faster.
  • If you are looking for a ncurses-based solution, vcp maybe the right choice for you
  • If you are looking for a more general solution to display progress bars when performing command-line operations, see clpbar:
