A component with a visual loading animation indicating that content is being fetched or loaded
A skeleton component is a visual loading animation used to indicate that content is being fetched or loaded, providing options for controlling its appearance and animations.
Skeleton components offer the following key features:
Styles: Customize the initial styles of the skeleton to align with your application's design.
Animation: The "Animation" switch enables or disables animations for the skeleton. You can choose to have animated loading indicators or static placeholders.
To use skeleton components in your application:
Animation: Use the "Animation" switch to enable or disable animations for the skeleton. Animated skeletons can provide a more engaging loading experience, while static skeletons can be used for simple content placeholders.
Skeleton components are commonly used in various scenarios, including:
Page loading: Display a skeleton animation while content on a page is loading to provide visual feedback to users.
Image loading: Use skeletons as placeholders for images that are still loading.
Content loading: Show skeletons in place of content that is being fetched from a server, such as articles, user profiles, or product listings.
Skeleton components enhance user experiences by indicating that content is loading and reducing the perception of long loading times.
