Alternative Training Progress Measures

From my experience, tqdm does not play nicely with Google Colab when Colab is run locally. With pytorch lightning, can I disable tqdm so that I can train my models when running Colab locally? Is there an alternative training indicator that would highlight my training progress? Thanks

Here’s a github issue that reflects my understanding of the tqdm/Local Colab issue - https://github.com/tqdm/tqdm/issues/687

set progress_bar_refresh_rate=0

maybe log your training progress in a logger like TensorBoard. You can log self.global_step in training_step (I think it’s logged by default).
