Fakeprogress
Simulate smooth progression easily and combine real progression and fake progression.

Install

npm install fake-progress

Basic example

var FakeProgress = require("fake-progress");

// Create the fake progress with a timeConstant of 10 seconds
// it means that :
//  after 10 seconds, progress will be 0.6321 ( = 1-Math.exp(-1) )
//  after 20 seconds, progress will be 0.8646 ( = 1-Math.exp(-2) )
//  and so one
var p = new FakeProgress({
	timeConstant : 10000,
	autoStart : true
});

var exampleAsyncFunction = function(callback){
	setTimeout(function(){
		callback()
	},30000)
};

var onEachSecond = function(){
	console.log("Progress is "+(p.progress*100).toFixed(1)+" %");
};

var interval = setInterval(onEachSecond, 1000);

var onEnd = function(){
	p.end();
	clearInterval(interval);
	console.log("Ended. Progress is "+(p.progress*100).toFixed(1)+" %")
};

exampleAsyncFunction(onEnd);

will print
Progress is 8.6 %
Progress is 17.3 %
Progress is 25.2 %
Progress is 32.3 %
...

The chart of progression over time.
Chart of progress
Until the end is triggered, the progression is following the exponential curve, once "end" is triggered, progression goes to 100%.

More complex

In this example we will mix 3 functions, A and C are classical async functions, B is an async function with a 'real' callback.

Create 2 async function a, c

a and c are 2 basic async functions without progress.
const a = function (cb) {
	setTimeout(() => {
		cb();
	}, 1000);
};

const c = function (cb) {
	setTimeout(() => {
		cb();
	}, 3000);
};

Create a class for event emitter with linear progress

b will be an instance of an event emmiter that has a progress event
const B = function () {
	EventEmitter.call(this);

	let count = 0;
	const self = this;
	const totalCount = 30;
	self.emit('start', count / totalCount);
	self._intervalId = setInterval(() => {
		count++;
		if (count >= totalCount) {
			self.emit('end', count / totalCount);
			clearInterval(self._intervalId);
		} else {
			self.emit('progress', count / totalCount);
		}
	}, 100);
};

util.inherits(B, EventEmitter);

Create a fake progress and log his value over time

const p = new FakeProgress({});

const onEachDeciSecond = function () {
	console.log('Progress is ' + (p.progress * 100).toFixed(1) + ' %');
};

onEachDeciSecond();

const interval = setInterval(onEachDeciSecond, 100);

Create sub progress bar of p, for a progress

A has no progress so we fake his progress. A succeed in 1000 ms, so we can consider 500 ms is a good timeConstant.
const aProgress = p.createSubProgress({
	timeConstant: 500,
	end: 0.3,
	autoStart: true
});

Call async chain

Each time on the async chain, subProgress.stop() then call createSubProgress() to create a new subProgress.
a(err => {
	if (err) {
		throw (err);
	}
	aProgress.stop();
	const bProgress = p.createSubProgress({
		end: 0.8
	});
	const b = new B();

	b.on('progress', progress => {
		bProgress.setProgress(progress);
	});

	b.on('end', () => {
		bProgress.stop();
		const cProgress = p.createSubProgress({
			timeConstant: 1000,
			autoStart: true
		});
		c(() => {
			cProgress.end();
			onEachDeciSecond();
			clearInterval(interval);
		});
	});
});

Call everything

After each call, stop previous sub, and create a new subProgress for next request.
a(function(){
	aProgress.stop();
	var bProgress = p.createSubProgress({
		end : 0.8
	});
	var b = new B();

	b.on('progress', function(progress){
		bProgress.setProgress(progress);
	});

	b.on('end', function(){
		bProgress.stop();
		var cProgress = p.createSubProgress({
			timeConstant : 1000,
			autoStart : true
		});
		c(function(){
			cProgress.end()
			onEachDeciSecond()
			clearInterval(interval);
		})
	});
});
