Before the post I just wanted to premise 2 things:
- I’m into programming from less than a month so any enhancement, alternatives, precisations or excesses in explanations, is Boldy appreciated.
- It’s my first post on Stack Overflow, hope I structured it correctly.
So I was trying to define a function "download(url)" that should download a file with a progress bar from a url given as whatever "url" is called in the function i just created.
I made it look like this:
def download(url): import requests from progress.bar import Bar file = requests.get(url, stream=True) dictdata = eval(str(file.headers)) total_length = dictdata["Content-Length"] with Bar("Downloading...") as bar: for chunk in file.iter_content(chunk_size=(int((int(total_length))/100))): <Here goes something that writes it down to a variable or something like that but I don't know how that's called yet.> bar.next() return <the variable or whatever it'll be.>
I expect it to work like this by the way:
file = download(example)
So how do I do this?
Maybe you want to store the
chunk of bytes?
data = bytearray() with Bar("Downloading...") as bar: for chunk in file.iter_content(chunk_size=(int((int(total_length))/100))): data += chunk bar.next() return data
