Make your Python scripts more user friendly with loading animations

Project description


pynimbar is a Python package that provides a simple and customizable loading animation for console-based applications. The package allows you to create loading animations with custom text, as well as adjust the animation speed and style.


You can install pynimbar using pip:

pip install pynimbar


pynimbar provides a context manager that allows you to use the loading animation as a context manager. This can be useful if you want to ensure that the loading animation is automatically stopped when an error occurs or when your code finishes executing. For example:

from pynimbar import loading_animation
from time import sleep

with loading_animation('Processing data...'):


You can customize the appearance and behavior of the loading animation using the following parameters:

  • text (str): The text to display during the animation.
  • success_msg (str, optional): The text to display when the animation is done. Defaults to 'ok'.
  • animation_frequency (float, optional): The frequency of the animation. Defaults to 0.1.
  • break_on_error (bool, optional): Whether to break on error. Defaults to False.
  • verbose_errors (bool, optional): Whether to print the error traceback. Defaults to False.
  • frames (str, optional): The frames of the animation. Defaults to '|/-\\'.
