worm 0.3

Animating worms for progress bars


What came first, the worm or the fish?

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

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.
