How to install tqdm
on openSUSE

tqdm snap


Casper (casper-dcl)

A fast, extensible CLI progress bar

tqdm means "progress" in Arabic (taqadum, تقدّم) and is an abbreviation for "I love you so much" in Spanish (te quiero demasiado).

Instantly make your loops show a smart progress meter and stats - just replace any pipe "|" with "| tqdm |", and you're done!

$ seq 9999999 | tqdm --bytes | wc -l
75.2MB [00:00, 217MB/s]
$ 7z a -bd -r backup.7z docs/ | grep Compressing | \
  tqdm --total $(find docs/ -type f | wc -l) --unit files >> backup.log
100%|███████████████████████████████▉| 8014/8014 [01:37<00:00, 82.29files/s]

Overhead is low -- about 60ns per iteration.

In addition to its low overhead, tqdm uses smart algorithms to predict the remaining time and to skip unnecessary iteration displays, which allows for a negligible overhead in most cases.

tqdm works on any platform (Linux, Windows, Mac, FreeBSD, NetBSD, Solaris/SunOS), in any console or in a GUI, and is also friendly with IPython/Jupyter notebooks.

tqdm does not require any dependencies, just an environment supporting carriage return \r and line feed \n control characters.

Enable snaps on openSUSE and install tqdm

Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.

Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.

Snap can be installed from the command line on openSUSE Leap 42.3, Leap 15 and Tumbleweed.

You need first add the snappy repository from the terminal. Leap 15 users, for example, can do this with the following command:

Swap out openSUSE_Leap_15.0 for either openSUSE_Leap_42.3 or openSUSE_Tumbleweed if you’re using a different version of openSUSE.

With the repository added, import its GPG key:

Finally, upgrade the package cache to include the new snappy repository:

Snap can now be installed with the following:

You then need to either reboot, logout/login or source /etc/profile to have /snap/bin added to PATH. Additionally, enable and start both the snapd and the snapd.apparmor services with the following commands:

Tumbleweed users also need to run the following:
