An activity indicator lets someone know there’s a background task in progress and assures them the system is still working.
Use activity indicators for loading states that take longer than one second but avoid them for long loading processes. For longer processes, try the native determinate progress bar to communicate how much time is left. If it’s possible to load the UI gradually and give someone an idea of the content’s structure, try a shimmer.
This info is coming soon We’ll add the API tables and code blocks as they become available, so check back often. In the meantime, take a look at our source and sample code in GitHub.
