Not sure where to post it so I’m throwing it in here to prevent polluting the GitHub ‘issues’.
I would love to see a non-intrusive loading feedback in Ionic Framework. There are several apps out there wo already implement similar functionality so I presume that my screenshot will do all the explaining for me:
Yes, I have the Ionic forum and documentation as pinned tabs
The idea is simple: I want to show loading feedback to a user but still allow the user to use the app in the meanwhile.
For example, I’m opening a list view where cached items are shown from the previous time I opened that view. But the app detects there is an internet connection and is automagically reloading the list view data in the background.
Right now, the user doesn’t know that this background process is running and might go ahead and try to pull-to-refresh himself.
Another scenario would be that the user will receive feedback of this loading event through an
$ionicLoading ‘modal’ which blocks all app interaction while the user just wanted to scroll down to some data that was already available.
In both cases, a non-intrusive loading feedback like the black bar in my example would be awesome.
Of course, this loader animates with a ‘slide down’ from behind the header and slides back up when done.
Does anyone else like this idea and/or is something similar already available / in development? Do you know about this @Calendee?
