TIM: Timed Iteration Monitor

Project description

Tim: Timed iteration monitor

A common pattern I have when writing code to import or treat large chunk of data is to do some printing to track the progress and some timing to monitor the speed.
So I often end up with some variation of this in my code:

from datetime import datetime
start =
n = 0
for i in my_iter:
print "\r", i,
# do stuff
print start -
print (start - / n / 100

which is a lot to remember and type which in turn make it easy to introduce bugs in some edge case which you need then to debug.

So I wrote tim to help me do just that, so I have this pattern ready for use and working and can spend my time coding my data treatment instead of debbugging my helper code.

*WARNING* : This is alpha level stuff, I'm still working out the proper way to do stuff so the API may still change a bit.

How to use tim

Common usage pattern would probably be:

import tim

for i in my_iter:
tim.pulse_print() # print current progress
# do stuff
tim.stop() # print overall stats and reset counter

If you just need to monitor start and stop you can use:

# calculation
tim.stop() # print elapsed time and reset


pip install tim
