Instant Preloader Bar

If you want to prevent the so called FOUT or FOUC (Flash Of Unstyled Text or Content) and show a (fake) inline preloader bar until all resources are loaded.

Press CMD+F5 to show it again (hard reload)


Put the following code-snippets into your Webflow Custom Code Section (Page Settings)

Step 1

Add this Custom Code inside <HEAD> tag:

.preloader {
z-index: 2000;
position: fixed;
top: 0;
right: 0;
bottom: 0;
left: 0;
background-color: white;
transition: opacity .65s ease;
.loading-bar {
width: 12%;
height: 5px;
background-color: #00ea95;
transition: width 8000ms cubic-bezier(.25, 0, 0, 1); 
  document.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", function() {
  	requestAnimationFrame(function() {
			document.getElementById("loadingBar").style.width = "100%";

Step 2

Add this Custom Code before </BODY> tag:

window.onload = function () {
document.getElementById("loadingIndicator").style.opacity = "0";
setTimeout(function() {
    document.getElementById("loadingIndicator").style.display = "none";}, 450);

Step 3

Add the following two DIVs and class names inside Webflow

Make the outer DIV invisible (display: none)
