cmd/go: go get download progress and download speed status #15959
go get is an awesome tool download and install repositories from websites. But the problem is many times due bad internet connection or varying internet speed or a large repository it takes a lot of time.All we can do is look at blinking the cursor and there is no way to know how much code has been downloaded or is it installing or downloading .
I would like to request this feature of percentage of completed download and download speed status
For git you'll want to use
I'd be a little concerned that this would be confusing if not provided in the other supported systems, but then I actually didn't realize till now that you actually could use hg, svn etc, so perhaps if you're using those you also know to look for some inconsistencies as the masses swarm git.
we do need more progress for
repo0 (download) repo1 (download) ...
but download-progress like
Rceiving: 14% (368/2626), 36.01 KiB | 46.00 KiB/s
which enables us to confirm if the net connection is healthy or dead. It's important for user-friendly and also for debug.
