I couldn’t find a progress bar package, so I created one.


This package is available via the Swift Package Manager. Simply add .package(url: "https://github.com/theBreadCompany/swiftbar.git", from: "1.0.0") to your Package.swift or https://github.com/theBreadCompany/swiftbar.git to your project’s package dependencies.


This module is (yet) rather… simple. I. e. create a bar with the length of your_collection.count, loop through your_collection and update with bar.setPrgress(bar.getProgress() + 1).

If you want to see it in action, clone (git clone https://github.com/theBreadCompany/swiftbar.git) the repo, cd into it, type swift build and execute either .build/debug/Example or .build/debug/Example2.

Please keep in mind that there may be unexpected behaviour as the Xcode “terminal” isn’t an actual terminal.


  • Write tests
  • Introduce a tqdm (python) inspired Collection that print a bar as it is being subscripted
  • Add operators like + to simplify updating the bar
  • add styles
