Urwid Timed Progress Bar

Project Description


urwid_timed_progress is an Urwid progress widget that displays enhanced progress with custom units, rate of progress, and estimated time remaining.


Example screenshot showing two progress bars


pip install urwid_timed_progress


Create timed progress bar, much like a regular ProgressBar:

file_size_mb = 1234
progress = TimedProgressBar('normal', 'complete', label='Current File',
                            units='MB', done=file_size_mb)

As the file operation proceeds update the progress bar:

progress.add_progress(1)  # each time 1 unit of progress has been made

add_progress() updates the progress bar rate and estimated time remaining.

To update the timer without adding progress do:


See example code.


The project lives on GitHub. Bug reports, questions, and comments are most welcome.
