80+ Best Pure CSS Loading Spinners For Front-end Developers (2019 Update)


Have noticed that there’re a large number of Javascript (or jQuery) based loading spinners for dynamic content out there, however, the CSS technology can do the same thing with better performance and less coding.

In this post, I would like to share with you a hand-picked list of 80+best loading spinners animated with pure CSS/CSS3 for your next project, for inspiration, or for your particular users who have Javascript DISABLED.

Free free to download and use them as a loading indicator and/or preloader for your dynamic content like AJAX loader, image/content lazy loading indicator, image preloader, and much more.

Please note that all the loading spinners listed here are animated with CSS3 so they should be able to work nicely in modern browsers which support CSS3 properties like transitions, transforms, @keyframes, animations, etc. Let’s check them out!

You might find more JavaScript & CSS based loading indicators & loading spinners on CSSScript.com.

SpinKit

SpinKit uses CSS animations to create smooth and easily customizable animations.  The goal is not to offer a solution that works in every browser—if you’re supporting browsers that haven’t implemented the CSS animation property (e.g. IE9 and below), you’ll want to detect support for the animation property, and implement a fallback (see below.)
