An easy way to print messages intended to be overwritten.
temprint is an acronym for temporary print
This package provides an easy way to output temporary prints intended to be overwritten by other messages. Use it if you want to avoid flooding your terminal with old prints.
Install it with $ pip install temprint
Now you can use the temprint function, as in:
from time import sleep from temprint import temprint msgs = [ 'a short message', 'a slightly longer message', 'a tiny msg', 'a very big message. it is so big that it cannot fit in your ' + 'terminal width and temprint will behave as a regular print', 'now a short message again', 'and a shorter message' ] for msg in msgs: temprint(msg) sleep(2)
You should see the messages being printed and then erased iteratively.
If the message is longer than your terminal width, temprint will behave as the regular built-in print function.
The temprint function can receive a series of objects to be printed and a separator:
>>> temprint('first', 'second', 'third', sep='/') first/second/third
