Library for showing a spinner icon for terminal tasks


tty-spinner provides a selection of different text-based animations that can be shown when the user is waiting on a task running in terminal that has non-deterministic time frame.

Those tasks will usually be waiting for some I/O, for example a download or a task that was requested from a service that will give an answer whenever the response is ready.
