hg’s progress extension

Mercurial has a really nice extension that emulates git’s progress bars on pulls and updates, the progress extension. It’s been distributed with Mercurial since 1.5.

In order to get command-line progress bars like this:

manifests [=====================================>                   ] 6669/9978

all you have to do is add

progress =

to your .hgrc in the [extensions] section.
