</p>

The list of spinners is just a [JSON file](spinners.json) and can be used wherever.

You probably want to use one of these spinners through the [`ora`](https://github.com/sindresorhus/ora) module.

## Install

```
$ npm install cli-spinners
```

## Usage

```js
const cliSpinners = require('cli-spinners');

console.log(cliSpinners.dots);
/*
{
	interval: 80,
	frames: ['⠋', '⠙', '⠹', '⠸', '⠼', '⠴', '⠦', '⠧', '⠇', '⠏']
}
*/
```

## Preview

The header GIF is outdated. See all the [spinner at once](https://jsfiddle.net/sindresorhus/2eLtsbey/embedded/result/) or [one at the time](https://asciinema.org/a/95348?size=big).

## API

Each spinner comes with a recommended `interval` and an array of `frames`.

[See the spinners.](spinners.json)

The `random` spinner will return a random spinner each time it's called.
