Example app with page loading indicator
How to use
npx create-next-app --example with-loading with-loading-app # or yarn create next-app --example with-loading with-loading-app
Download the example:
curl https://codeload.github.com/zeit/next.js/tar.gz/canary | tar -xz --strip=2 next.js-canary/examples/with-loading cd with-loading
Install it and run:
npm install npm run dev # or yarn yarn dev
The idea behind the example
Sometimes when switching between pages, Next.js needs to download pages(chunks) from the server before rendering the page. And it may also need to wait for the data. So while doing these tasks, browser might be non responsive.
We can simply fix this issue by showing a loading indicator. That's what this examples shows.
