I ran gzip on an 80Gb file, it's processing, but who knows how much it has done yet, and when it will end? I wish gzip had a progressbar. Or MySQL. Or…

Ok. Now every program that reads a file sequentially can have a progressbar:

https://gitlab.com/spanezz/fdprogress

fdprogress

Print progress indicators for programs that read files sequentially.

fdprogress monitors file descriptor offsets and prints progressbars comparing them to file sizes.

Pattern can be any glob expression.

usage: fdprogress [-h] [--verbose] [--debug] [--pid PID] [pattern]

show progress from file descriptor offsets

positional arguments:
  pattern            file name to monitor

optional arguments:
  -h, --help         show this help message and exit
  --verbose, -v      verbose output
  --debug            debug output
  --pid PID, -p PID  PID of process to monitor

pv

pv has a --watchfd option that does most of what fdprogress is trying to do: use that instead.
