For all available spinners, see https://jsfiddle.net/sindresorhus/2eLtsbey/embedded/result/

Usage

Spinners can be used with Progress and Status.

AnsiConsole.Status()
    .Spinner(Spinner.Known.Star)
    .Start("Thinking...", ctx => {
        // Omitted
    });

Implementing a spinner

To implement your own spinner, all you have to do is inherit from the Spinner base class.

In the example below, the spinner will alterate between the characters A, B and C every 100 ms.

public sealed class MySpinner : Spinner
{
    // The interval for each frame
    public override TimeSpan Interval => TimeSpan.FromMilliseconds(100);
    
    // Whether or not the spinner contains unicode characters
    public override bool IsUnicode => false;

    // The individual frames of the spinner
    public override IReadOnlyList<string> Frames => 
        new List<string>
        {
            "A", "B", "C",
        };
}
