Creating custom spinners

bash

#1

Is it possible to create a custom spinner? I have the following in a script

#!/bin/bash

show_spinner()
{
  local -r pid="${1}"
  local -r delay='0.3'
  local spinstr='\|/-'
  local temp
  while ps a | awk '{print $1}' | grep -q "${pid}"; do
    temp="${spinstr#?}"
    printf " %c  " "${spinstr}"
    spinstr=${temp}${spinstr%"${temp}"}
    sleep "${delay}"
    printf "\b\b\b\b\b\b"
  done
  printf "    \b\b\b\b"
}

("$@") &
show_spinner "$!"

When I parse the command locally it runs, however on circle-ci in the step where the script runs, the default circle-ci spinner is the one that shows up.
