Build Status


Emacs progress reporter with fancy characters.


(require 'unicode-progress-reporter)
;; to see a demo


This is a trivial modification to Emacs' built-in progress reporter to display spinners using Unicode characters.

To use unicode-progress-reporter, place the unicode-progress-reporter.el library somewhere Emacs can find it, and add the following to your ~/.emacs file:

(require 'unicode-progress-reporter)
