mkdocs-plugin-progress is a plugin that outputs build updates in real time to the console.


Install the plugin using pip with the following command:

pip install mkdocs-plugin-progress

Next, add the following lines to your mkdocs.yml:

  - search
  - progress

Remember to re-add the search plugin

If you have no plugins entry in your config file yet, you'll likely also want to add the search plugin. MkDocs enables it by default if there is no plugins entry set.


After completing the steps above, try running the build, and you should see the output!
