Why skeletons?

The idea of this component is make the process transparent and easier. So the main point is integrate this component with other tooling process, such as:

  • Server-side rendering;
  • Progressive rendering;
  • Any other that you like :)

It's totally transparent for you and you can integrate easier in your application, improving your user experience 🎉


Try out our demo on Stackblitz!


You can get it on NPM installing ngx-skeleton-loader module as a project dependency.

npm install ngx-skeleton-loader --save


You'll need to add NgxSkeletonLoaderModule to your application module. So that, the <ngx-skeleton-loeader> components will be accessible in your application.

  declarations: [
  imports: [
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [YourAppComponent]

export class YourAppComponent {}

After that, you can use the featureToggle components in your templates, passing the configuration data into the component itself.

  • ngx-skeleton-loader: Handle the skeleton animation and the skeleton styles of your app;
<div class="item"><ngx-skeleton-loader count="5" appearance="circle"> </ngx-skeleton-loader></div>
