Bug#922631: ITP: golang-github-briandowns-spinner -- Go (golang) package for providing a terminal spinner/progress indicator with options.




Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : golang-github-briandowns-spinner
  Version         : 1.4
  Upstream Author : Brian Downs
* URL             : https://github.com/briandowns/spinner

  Description     : terminal spinner/progress indicator with options

 spinner is a simple package to add a spinner / progress indicator to
 any terminal application. Examples can be found below as well as full
 examples in the examples directory.

This is a dependency for dt (#922628). Unfortunately, there are already
*two* existing spinner packages in golang:

https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/golang-github-tj-go-spin

https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/golang-github-odeke-em-cli-spinner

Brian Downs' implementation is much more featureful, however, so I think
it might be reasonable to add it to Debian even though it duplicates the
above packages. (I *would* question, however, the reasoning behind
having the above *two* packages because *those* are almost identical in
functionality...)
