Skeleton Loading Screen Animation using only HTML & CSSHello readers, Today in this blog you’ll learn how to create Skeleton Loading Screen Animation using only HTML & CSS. Earlier I have shared a blog on how to create a drag and drop list or draggable list in javascript and now it’s time to create skeleton loading screen animation.

 
A skeleton loading screen is the user interface (UI) that doesn’t hold actual content; instead, it animates the page’s layout by showing its elements in shape similar to the actual content as it is loading and becoming ready.

In this program [Skeleton Loading Screen Animation], on the webpage, there is showing skeleton loader by its element shape. This is a pure CSS program, so this skeleton screen doesn’t load actual content but you can easily show your content by removing this skeleton layer when the content loaded completely. If you’re feeling difficult to understand what I am saying. You can watch a full video tutorial on this program [Skeleton Loading Screen Animation].

In the video, you have seen the skeleton ui loading screen which is created using only HTML & CSS. I hope you’ve understood the codes and concepts behind creating this program. If you’re a beginner then you can also create this type of loading screen because it’s easy to create using CSS.
