Skeleton text not working in ionic-5 app

Hi, I am trying to use ion-skeleton-text but the element won’t render. A few scenarios:

  1. It shows when animated is false and --background is set to a non-default color.
  2. Disappears when the animated attribute is added even if the --background is set to a non-default color.

Below is the output of ionic info:


Ionic CLI : 5.4.16 (/usr/lib/node_modules/ionic)
Ionic Framework : @ionic/angular 5.3.2
@angular-devkit/build-angular : 0.1000.8
@angular-devkit/schematics : 10.0.8
@angular/cli : 10.0.8
@ionic/angular-toolkit : 2.3.3


Capacitor CLI : 2.4.1
@capacitor/core : 2.4.1


Cordova CLI : 10.0.0
Cordova Platforms : none
Cordova Plugins : no whitelisted plugins (1 plugins total)

Can you please provide public access to a minimal repository (such as on GitHub) that others can use to replicate your problem?
