React Placeholder

In the example below, we take a typical card component and recreate it with placeholders applied to create a "loading card". Size and proportions are the same between the two.

Card title

Some quick example text to build on the card title and make up the bulk of the card's content.

Go somewhere

React Placeholder

Create placeholders with the <CPlaceholder> component and a grid column propx (e.g., xs=6) to set the width. They can replace the text inside an element or be added as a modifier class to an existing component.

React Placeholder Width

You can change the width through grid column classes, width utilities, or inline styles.

React Placeholder Color

By default, the <CPlaceholder> uses currentColor. This can be overridden with a custom color or utility class.

React Placeholder Sizing

The size of <CPlaceholder>s are based on the typographic style of the parent element. Customize them with size prop: lg, sm, or xs.

React Placeholder Animation

Animate placeholders with animation="glow" or animation="wave" to better convey the perception of something being actively loaded.
