NAME

Progress::Any::Output::TermProgressBarColor - Output progress to terminal as color bar

VERSION

This document describes version 0.245 of Progress::Any::Output::TermProgressBarColor (from Perl distribution Progress-Any-Output-TermProgressBarColor), released on 2018-03-27.

SYNOPSIS

 use Progress::Any::Output;

 # use default options
 Progress::Any::Output->set('TermProgressBarColor');

 # set options
 Progress::Any::Output->set('TermProgressBarColor',
                            width=>50, fh=>\*STDERR, show_delay=>5);

DESCRIPTION

THIS IS AN EARLY RELEASE, SOME THINGS ARE NOT YET IMPLEMENTED E.G. STYLES, COLOR THEMES.

Sample screenshots:

This output displays progress indicators as colored progress bar on terminal. It produces output similar to that produced by Term::ProgressBar, except that it uses the Progress::Any framework and has additional features:

  • colors and color themes

  • template and styles

  • displaying message text in addition to bar/percentage number

  • wide character support

XXX option to cleanup when complete or not (like in Term::ProgressBar) and should default to 1.

METHODS

new(%args) => OBJ

Instantiate. Usually called through Progress::Any::Output->set("TermProgressBarColor", %args).

Known arguments:

  • freq => num

    Limit the frequency of output updating. 0 means no frequency limiting (update output after every update()).

    A positive number means to update output when there has been that amount of difference in position since last update(). For example, if freq is 10 and the last update() was at position 5, then the next output update will be when position is at least 15.

    A negative number means to update output when time has passed that amount of absolute value (in seconds). For example, if freq is -3 and the last update() was 1 second ago, then the next output update will not be until the next two seconds has passed.

    By default undef, in which case Progress::Any will use the default -0.5 (at most once every 0.5 seconds).

  • wide => bool

    If set to 1, enable wide character support (requires Text::ANSI::WideUtil.

  • width => INT

    Width of progress bar. The default is to detect terminal width and use the whole width.

  • color_theme => STR

    Not yet implemented.

    Choose color theme. To see what color themes are available, use list_color_themes().

  • style => STR

    Not yet implemented.

    Choose style. To see what styles are available, use list_styles(). Styles determine the characters used for drawing the bar, alignment, etc.

  • template => str

    See fill_template in Progress::Any's documentation. Aside from conversions supported by Progress::Any, this output recognizes these additional conversions: %b to display the progress bar (with width using the rest of the available width), %B to display the progress bar as well as the message inside it. You can also enclose parts of text with "<color RGB>" ... "</color>" to give color.

    The default template is:

     <color ffff00>%p</color> <color 808000>[</color>%B<color 808000>]</color><color ffff00>%e</color>
  • fh => handle (default: \*STDERR)

    Instead of the default STDERR, you can direct the output to another filehandle e.g. STDOUT.

  • show_delay => int

    If set, will delay showing the progress bar until the specified number of seconds. This can be used to create, e.g. a CLI application that is relatively not chatty but will display progress after several seconds of seeming inactivity to indicate users that the process is still going on.

keep_delay_showing()

Can be called to reset the timer that counts down to show progress bar when show_delay is defined. For example, if show_delay is 5 seconds and two seconds have passed, it should've been 3 seconds before progress bar is shown in the next update(). However, if you call this method, it will be 5 seconds again before showing.

FAQ

How to update progress bar output more often?

Set freq to e.g. -0.1 or -0.05. The default freq, when unset, is -0.5 which means to update output at most once every 0.5 second.

ENVIRONMENT

COLOR

Bool. Can be used to force or disable color. See Color::ANSI::Util.

COLOR_DEPTH

Integer. Can be used to override color depth detection. See Color::ANSI::Util.

COLUMNS

Integer. Can be used to override terminal width detection.

PROGRESS_TERM_BAR

Bool. Forces disabling or enabling progress output (just for this output).

In the absence of PROGRESS_TERM_MESSAGE and PROGRESS, will default to 1 if filehandle is detected as interactive (using -t).

PROGRESS

Bool. Forces disabling or enabling progress output (for all outputs).
