Preloading Animation Before the Document is Ready

In Responsive Web Design (RWD), you can eventually encounter a messy page structure when loading a page, especially if you a have slow internet connection, though you have a correct CSS adjustment when all resources are fully loaded. Now, there is an elegant way to handle that, you can hook animations, images, or texts while waiting to fully load the content and this can be handle using jQuery .load() function.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>

<style>
#preloader {
 background: #fff;
 position: fixed;
 top: 0;
 bottom: 0;
 right: 0;
 left: 0;
 z-index: 9998;
}

.loader {
 background: #ddd;
 position: absolute;
 display: inline-block;
 height: 40px;
 width: 40px;
 left: 50%;
 top: 50%;
 margin: -20px 0 0 -20px;
 text-indent: -9999em;
 -webkit-border-radius: 100%;
 -moz-border-radius: 100%;
 border-radius: 100%;
 -webkit-animation-fill-mode: both;
 animation-fill-mode: both;
 -webkit-animation: ball-scale 1s 0s ease-in-out infinite;
 animation: ball-scale 1s 0s ease-in-out infinite;
}

@-webkit-keyframes ball-scale {

 0% {
 -webkit-transform: scale(0);
 -moz-transform: scale(0);
 -ms-transform: scale(0);
 -o-transform: scale(0);
 transform: scale(0);
 }

 100% {
 opacity: 0;
 -webkit-transform: scale(1);
 -moz-transform: scale(1);
 -ms-transform: scale(1);
 -o-transform: scale(1);
 transform: scale(1);
 }
}

@keyframes ball-scale {

 0% {
 -webkit-transform: scale(0);
 -moz-transform: scale(0);
 -ms-transform: scale(0);
 -o-transform: scale(0);
 transform: scale(0);
 }

 100% {
 opacity: 0;
 -webkit-transform: scale(1);
 -moz-transform: scale(1);
 -ms-transform: scale(1);
 -o-transform: scale(1);
 transform: scale(1);
 }
}
</style>

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.3/jquery.min.js"></script>

</head>
<body>
 <!-- preloader kicks -->
 <div id="preloader">
 <div class="loader">Loading...</div>
 </div>
 <!-- preloader ends -->

<p> This is your page content <p>

<script>
$(window).load(function() {
 $('.loader').fadeOut();
 $('#preloader').delay(300).fadeOut('slow');
});
</script>

</body>
</html>
