No progress showed on Google Colab

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

When running rclone commands on Google Colab with -P (or --progress) flag, the progress is not showed. Rather, a bunch of empty lines are printed on the output panel.

I suspect that the Notebook environment does not support this type of console output. I would like to know if there is any other work around.

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v1.53.1

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

os/arch: linux/amd64

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Google Drive

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone copy source: target: --progress --quiet

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

Any config would produce the same.

A log from the command with the -vv flag

The log is normal, as this is not an error with rclone.

You can use -v which will print stats once per minute by default. You can use --stats 5s to make them print every 5s. This will work on Colab I expect. The stats printed are the same as printed by --progress

Yeah. -v with --stats duration work. It's not as nice as --progress but I can still the the progress. Thanks!
