Skeleton

Provide a placeholder while you wait for content to load, or to visualise content that doesn't exist yet.

When To Use#

  • When a resource needs long time to load.

  • When the component contains lots of information, such as List or Card.

  • Only works when loading data for the first time.

  • Could be replaced by Spin in any situation, but can provide a better user experience.

Examples

import { Skeleton, Button } from 'antd';

class Demo extends React.Component {
  state = {
    loading: false,
  };

  showSkeleton = () => {
    this.setState({ loading: true });
    setTimeout(() => {
      this.setState({ loading: false });
    }, 3000);
  };

  render() {
    return (
      <div className="article">
        <Skeleton loading={this.state.loading}>
