msgProgressBar is an equivalent to use txtProgressBar but uses message()instead of cat to print out the progress bar. This is good to use in R packages or in functions where one would like to supresse the progressbar using suppressMessages().


Currently the package is not on CRAN. Please install directly from github:



> test_bar <- function(i = 10){
+   bar <- msgProgressBar::msgProgressBar(i)
+   for(j in 1:i){
+     bar$increment()
+     Sys.sleep(4/i)
+     }
+   }
> test_bar(100)
