Hello Knime team,
I have a question regarding the little progress bar that appears while a node is running.
Does there exist any internal variable where I could specify total number of “tasks” and a callback that updates the progress towards this “total”, such that the progress bar under the node actually displays the progress (kind of like the tqdm module)?
Perhaps a flow variable or similar that could be updated on each iteration of a loop, which could then be used to render the progress bar, or an integration with existing progress bar modules such as tqdm, which would automatically display existing ones.
I have some long running scripts and it would be helpful if I could display the current progress of the node.
I already have progressbars all over the place because I like to see how far along things are; if I could at least see stdout in real time, that would be enough, but I haven’t figured out how to do that (if it even is possible).
If this feature doesn’t exist, are there any plans to add it or something similar to it?
