How to Create a Print Animation in Python?

Estimated read time 2 min read

You can create a print animation in Python using the time and sys modules to control the output of text to the console. Here’s an example code snippet:

import time
import sys

def print_animation(text):
    for char in text:
        sys.stdout.write(char)
        sys.stdout.flush()
        time.sleep(0.1)

# Example usage:
print_animation("Hello, world!")

In this example, we define a print_animation function that takes a string text as input and prints each character of the string one by one with a slight delay between each character.

We use a for loop to iterate over each character in the string. We use the sys.stdout.write() function to print each character to the console without adding a newline character, and use the sys.stdout.flush() function to ensure that the output is immediately printed to the console.

We use the time.sleep() function to introduce a delay of 0.1 seconds between each character, creating a slow print animation effect.

Finally, we test the function by calling print_animation("Hello, world!") to print the text with an animation effect. You can modify this code to work with your own text and adjust the delay time to control the speed of the animation.
