Add Processing Feedback To Submit Buttons - jQuery faSpinner

The fa.submit.spinner jQuery plugin provides a simple way to add a loading spinner to disabled submit buttons on your forms.

It works by injecting a spinning icon from the fontAwesome icon library into disabled submit buttons.  This can provide clear feedback after users click a submit button, ensuring they are aware that their request is being processed. Developers can also easily customize the spinner markup and CSS styles if desired.

How to use it:

1. Download and load the minified version of the faSpinner plugin after jQuery library.

<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/fa.submit.spinner.min.js"></script>

2. Initialize the plugin on all submit buttons in your HTML forms.

const instance = faSpinner.init();

3. Customize the loading spinner:

const instance = faSpinner.init({

  // disable this option to use your own loading spinner
  'fontawesome_required' : true,
  'fontawesome_url' : '',
  'btn_text' : '<i class="fa fa-spinner fa-pulse" aria-hidden="true"></i> ',
  'btn_replacestyle' : 'prepend', 
  'btn_selector' : 'button[type=submit]',

  // time to wait before displaying the loading spinner
  'delay' : 400,

  // timeout in ms
  'timeout' : 100,

  // automatically "spinnerify" any new submit buttons added after page load
  'ajax_listener' : false,

  // uses data-optionName attribute to config the loading spinner on submit buttons
  'use_attribute_definition' : false,

  // debug mode
  'debugmode' : false
