I found that Magento 2 itself using Symfony packages which is very flexible and we can customize it as per our need basis if you are in confusion to use it then only put this code in your Command extend class and fire command this will show you the terminal progress bar.

My command file path :- Namespace/ModuleName/Console/Command/CommandFile.php

use Symfony\Component\Console\Helper\ProgressBar;

// creates a new progress bar (50 units)
$progressBar = new ProgressBar($output, 50);

// starts and displays the progress bar

 $i = 0;
 while ($i++ < 50) {
// ... do some work

// advances the progress bar 1 unit

// you can also advance the progress bar by more than 1 unit
// $progressBar->advance(3);

// ensures that the progress bar is at 100%

Here you can explore it more :- https://symfony.com/doc/current/components/console/helpers/progressbar.html

  • Thanks a lot for your info. I want to implement this for the native product import which we do from Admin panel. As my catalog has 20K prods, once the import starts we really dont have any idea of how many prod's were imported. So for this, what needs to be done? Jun 6, 2018 at 12:16
