Easily Bind an NSProgress Object to an NSProgressIndicator in Objective-C [Open Source]

In UIKit UIProgressView has an observedProgress property. If you set the observedProgress property on a UIProgressView, it will automatically update its appearance when you make changes to the NSProgress object. On macOS (in AppKit at least) NSProgressIndicator does not have an equivalent API. I created a simple category on NSProgressIndicator that adds an observedProgress property on NSProgressIndicator. The source code is available on Github here.
