Package: PHP CLI Spinner
For console-based applications, usually, a cursor may appear blinking, but that does not give feedback on whether the current application is running well.
This package implements a better solution by showing the cursor changing its character, so it appears to be animated. This can give the users a better feeling by letting them know that the application is running.
The package implements a solution that uses a parallel process to animate the cursor character, so the application does not have to stop its main job to update the cursor animation.
