Trundler’s catalog of retailers and products is growing all the time! Sometimes, it might take a while to return queries that request a lot of data.

That’s why we’ve added a new progress bar feature to the {trundler} R package. We implemented this using the fantastic {progressr} package (available on CRAN).

Here’s a glimpse of it in action!

{progressr} is designed to allow the user to define the progress handler, so for {trundler}, we’ve opted for the default handler. If you want your handler to look like the one above, you can use the following code:

handlers(list(
handler_progress(
format   = ":spin :current/:total [:bar] :percent in :elapsed ETA: :eta",
width    = 80,
complete = "+"
)
))

We hope you enjoy this new feature! And let us know if you’d like to suggest any other features for {trundler}.
