# Walmart.Pulsar

Pulsar is a text-based, dynamic dashboard that lets processes communicate their status.
Jobs can be created, updated, and completed asynchronously, and update in-place.
This is intended for use in Elixir applications that run as command line tools.


## Installation

If [available in Hex](, the package can be installed
by adding `pulsar` to your list of dependencies in `mix.exs`:

def deps do
    {:pulsar, "~> 0.1.0"}

Documentation can be generated with [ExDoc](
and published on [HexDocs]( Once published, the docs can
be found at [](

## limitations

Pulsar doesn't know the dimensions on the screen; large numbers of jobs in
a short window will not render correctly.
Likewise, long lines that wrap will cause incorrect output.

Pulsar is hard-coded for for xterm; it should use the terminal capabilities
database to identify what command codes generate each effect.

Pulsar doesn't have any way to prevent other output to the console;
that will cause confusing output.
