rsync progress indicator which updates in-place

rsync --recursive --info=progress2 <src> <dst>
update the output of rsync after completing a file but don't create newlines, just overwrite the last line, this looks a lot better in scripts where you do want to see a progress-indicator, but not the lengthy logs this option is available since rsync 3.1.0
Sample Output
