Animating worms for progress bars

Project description


What came first, the worm or the fish?

Ever wanted to have animating worms for progress bars in your command-line script?

Inspired by Ludvig Ericson, author of fish, I present worm. Thus proving that I don’t have better things to do with my time than to write meaningless ASCII animation programs.

worm, the module that makes any program represent its sluggishness to the console while churning away on some good ‘ole data.

Usage? Simple enough:

>>> import worm
>>> while churning:
...     churn_churn()
...     worm.animate()

There is nothing more to say except:

Possibilities are endless here, gentlemen:

The only limit is yourself.
