<auro-loader> is a HTML custom element for the purpose of illustrating animated loaders.

Things take time. Sometimes we just need to take a second for some data to show up. For this Auro supports the <auro-loader> custom element. This powerful element supports multiple modes for use, ringworm, orbit, pulse, and laser.

And each of these modes support five size settings, default, sm, md, lg, and xl.

For color support <auro-loader> supports currentColor, this allows for any color set on the parent element to influence the color of the loader.

The <auro-loader> custom element also supports three pre-defined color modes, onlight, ondark and white.

Installing as a direct, dev or peer dependency is up to the user installing the package. If you are unsure as to what type of dependency you should use, consider reading this stack overflow answer.

Design Token CSS Custom Property dependency

The use of any Auro custom element has a dependency on the Auro Design Tokens.

CSS Custom Property fallbacks

CSS custom properties are not supported in older browsers. For this, fallback properties are pre-generated and included with the npm.

Any update to the Auro Design Tokens will be immediately reflected with browsers that support CSS custom properties, legacy browsers will require updated components with pre-generated fallback properties.

Define dependency in project component

Defining the component dependency within each component that is using the <auro-loader> component.

In cases where the project is not able to process JS assets, there are pre-processed assets available for use. See -- auro-loader__bundled.js for modern browsers. Legacy browsers such as IE11 are no longer supported.

WARNING! When installing into your application environment, DO NOT use @latest for the requested version. Risks include unknown MAJOR version releases and instant adoption of any new features and possible bugs without developer knowledge.
