=head1 NAME

Dancer::Logger::Spinner - Show a spinner in the console on Dancer log messages!

=head1 VERSION

version 0.02


    # in your Dancer app:
    setting logger => 'spinner';

    # or in your Dancer config file:
    logger: 'spinner'

Et voila!


When using this logger and running your application in the terminal, you will
see a text spinner running on each message it gets. If you have a page with a
lot of request, and they will come in fast, you'll see the spinner running. If
you have an app with very little requests in each page or if it is slow, the
spinner will run slowly.

Each request matches another rotation of the spinner.


=head2 init

Sets the spinner's characters and position.

=head2 advance_spinner

Advanced the spinner onefold by cleaning a terminal line and printing the next
spinner position.

=head2 _log

Gets a message to log and calls C<advance_spinner>.
