jQuery LoadingOverlay 2.0.0
CSS3 animations, SVG support and more!
16 March 2018
Version 2 is finally here! It includes some tiny breaking changes, so it is a good idea to reference the 1.x branch in your existing projects instead of any latest alias if you are not planning to make any minor adjustment in your code.
What’s new in version 2.0.0
- SVG images support
- CSS3 animations support
- 4 different built-in keyframes animations:
- Text element support
- Progress element support (basically what Extra Progress was doing in v1)
- New actions
coloroption is now named
- Default image is a modern, lightweight and customizable SVG instead of the old fashioned GIF
- Fixed size support (don’t fancy dynamic scaling? Here you go!)
- New folder structure, with source files under
src/and production files under
- A bunch of new options:
All these new options might seem overwhelming at first, but if you look closely you will see a clear and simple common pattern. They are as straightforward as possible, providing great flexibility yet witouth sacrificing the original idea of an easy plug-n-play plugin.
The code size has grown three times but performances have increased, taking full advantage of CSS3 animations (let’s put those graphic accelerator cards to good use!) and SVG images.
Breaking changes amd important notes on upgrading from v1
The single most important change is related to the
color option which has been replaced by
imagePosition has been removed entirely.
These changes shouldn’t break many existing projects using LoadingOverlay, since most of them are likely to be using the default settings.
Wait, wait, wait… I see a v2.0.1 already
Yep, they see me releasin’, they hatin’… A couple of bugfixes were necessary for Chrome and Edge, read the details here.
