abbreviation for "I love you so much" in Spanish (te quiero demasiado).
Instantly make your loops show a smart progress meter and stats - just replace any pipe "

| tqdm |", and you're done!

Overhead is low -- about 60ns per iteration.
In addition to its low overhead,
tqdm uses smart algorithms to predict
the remaining time and to skip unnecessary iteration displays, which
allows for a negligible overhead in most cases.
tqdm works on any platform (Linux, Windows, Mac, FreeBSD, NetBSD,
Solaris/SunOS), in any console or in a GUI, and is also friendly with
tqdm does not require any dependencies, just
an environment supporting
carriage return \r and
line feed \n control characters.
