Typewriter effect - Python

Ever think that the

print("Hello")

is too sudden?

Well today I can help with that.
I will be showing you how to make a typewriter, or typing effect!

Modules required

import time import sys

We will create a function to do the effect, so we do:

def write(write):

Make sure you do the (write) inside of the brackets, it s important.

Now we do the code.

def write(write): # Repeats for each letter. for i in write: # sys.stdout.write doesn't create a new line for each print sys.stdout.write(i) sys.stdout.flush() time.sleep(.05) # Do you want to continue to the next text? next = input()

Alternativeley, you can do a time.sleep replacing next = input()
However, if you do this, you have to add in

print("")

to create a new line.

Now to print it

write("Text here")

or

write = "text" write(write)

It is recommended you do the first option

Conclusion

I hope you found out something new today, bye!

Thanks all for giving me the suggestions. I am looking for information online related to the Typewriter effect - Python and I am glad I found your post. I have also found the https://www.topwritersreview.com/blog/from-rough-draft-to-polished-piece-of-writing-7-app-to-get-you-there/ link online through which I can hire an essay writer by reading reviews.

At the end of your text when you are doing this, you can add \n which makes it a new line

You can remove the newline at the end of print

def write(s): for i in s: print(i, end="", flush=True) time.sleep(.086)
