Loading Text Animation Effect using CSS


There are a lot of animations possible in CSS and today we will look at the loading text animation. The basic idea behind the working of this animation is the application of animation delay. Every alphabet is delayed by .1s so that each alphabet animates with a little delay and give the loading animation.

HTML Code: It is used to create the basic structure of the text loading animation. We will use <span> tag to display all alphabets in a linear fashion. The <span> tags are enclosed by <div> tag.

CSS Code: The CSS property is used to apply animation effect. First, we apply animation to all the alphabets and then add some delay. The duration of delay can be adjusted according to the need. You can adjust the animation duration and keyframes to make the animation a little faster or slower.
