Creating A Loading Indicator with jQuery and CSS3

A simple lightweight jQuery plugin for creating a loading spinner to indicate the loading progress using an animated GIF or a CSS3 loader.

How to use it:

1. Load the jQuery library together with the jQuery Loading Indicator plugin's Javascript and CSS in your page.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="path/to/jquery.loading-indicator.css">

<script src="//"></script>
<script src="path/to/jquery.loading-indicator.js"></script>

2. Call the plugin on a container element where you want to apply a loading indicator.


3. Available options.

  • useImage: false: Adds image to the wrapper if true. Otherwise it adds a css3 loader.
  • showOnInit: true: shows loader on init
  • loadingImage: "../src/images/loader.gif": Path to the loading gif. Only used when useImage: true
  • loadingClass: "loader": class for loader. Only used when useImage: false
  • wrapperClass: "loading-indicator-wrapper":class for the loading wrapper
