Quick Start

You can super quickly make a loading bar by using Smartbars like so:

from py_load import *

for i in Smartbar(range(1000)):
    # do stuff


Other Loading Bars

Py-load isn't the best option for style or for features. Py-load is meant to be simple, not flashy.

It's also just one dude working on it, so it's harder to maintain.

If you want a more complex Codebase Wise but well documented and fleshed out use tqdm.

If you want something that looks absolutely awesome, use alive-progress Seriously their bars look really cool!


Py-load is a simple python package that allows you to very easily add loading bars to your CLI app.

Py-load is very lightweight, and requires no other dependencies, and is also fairly customizable.

It uses modern python features to make the code organized and maintainable.

This whole repository is some what of a learning project. So I may goof up every now and then since I am not very experienced with Github and all of its features.

That's why you may see some strange commits every now and then. Sorry!

Note: I will do my best to keep the code itself clean and organized


Py-load only needs Python 3.6 or higher, as it uses Python 3 features.

Tested Python Versions

  • 3.10
  • 3.9
  • 3.8


Installing from source

Download and put it in your projects source folder, and then your done!

This will give you the newest features, but it may be unstable.

Installing with Pip

You can also use pip to install it by doing pip install py-load-lib

This will usually be fairly stable and robust, however it is updated a little slower.


See the Wiki for info on usage.
