What is TQDM in for loop Python?

In Python, tqdm is a popular library that provides a progress bar for iterables, including for loops. The name “tqdm” stands for “taqaddum jari’un ma’a al-waqt” in Arabic, which means “progressing rapidly” in English.

To use tqdm, you first need to install it using pip:

pip install tqdm

Once installed, you can import it into your Python script:

from tqdm import tqdm

The tqdm library provides a convenient way to visualize the progress of an iteration by wrapping the iterable object with a tqdm function. Here’s how you can use tqdm in a for loop:

from tqdm import tqdm

my_list = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]

for item in tqdm(my_list):
    # Do some processing

In the above example, tqdm(my_list) wraps the my_list iterable, and as the loop iterates over the elements, tqdm automatically updates and displays a progress bar indicating the completion percentage.

tqdm provides various options to customize the appearance and behavior of the progress bar. For example, you can set the progress bar’s description, define the bar’s length, choose a specific style, and more. You can refer to the tqdm documentation for more details on its usage and customization options.
