Custom symfony progressbar with a spinner.

I wanted a progressbar displaying a long running task like waiting for an external resource to be available. This is where I stumbled upon alecrabbit/php-cli-snake.

I tried to mimik the the animation using symfony/console and this is the result:


Use composer to require the small package

$ composer require icanhazstring/symfony-console-spinner


To use the spinner, just instantiate the SpinnerProgress like the default ProgressBar from symfony giving it the OutputInterface and the maximum count of items to process:

public function execute(OutputInterface $output, InputInterface $input)
    $spinner = new SpinnerProgress($output, 100);
    for($i = 0; $i < 100; $i++) {
