Loading state - Skeleton loader

myGov Beta component

The skeleton loader is used as a placeholder preview for data that is loading to reduce load-time frustration.

See ‘Wave example’ for reference.

If the content hasn’t loaded after 2 seconds, a ‘Snackbar’ appears to explain that the content is still loading. This was included for accessibility reasons so that the user is adequately informed of what is happening if the content doesn’t load quickly.

Rationale for submission:
No equivalent component in DTA Design System.
