Handy Python function for downloading file with progress bar
import sys
import requests
def download(url, filename):
with open(filename, 'wb') as f:
response = requests.get(url, stream=True)
total = response.headers.get('content-length')
if total is None:
f.write(response.content)
else:
downloaded = 0
total = int(total)
for data in response.iter_content(chunk_size=max(int(total / 1000), 1024 * 1024)):
downloaded += len(data)
f.write(data)
done = int(50 * downloaded / total)
sys.stdout.write('\r[{}{}]'.format('█' * done, '.' * (50 - done)))
sys.stdout.flush()
sys.stdout.write('\n')
