Getting started

1. Install @ngx-loading-bar:

  # if you use `@angular/common/http`
  npm install @ngx-loading-bar/core @ngx-loading-bar/http-client --save

  # if you use `@angular/router`
  npm install @ngx-loading-bar/core @ngx-loading-bar/router --save

  # to manage loading-bar manually
  npm install @ngx-loading-bar/core --save

2. Import the installed libraries:

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';

// for HttpClient import:
import { LoadingBarHttpClientModule } from '@ngx-loading-bar/http-client';

// for Router import:
import { LoadingBarRouterModule } from '@ngx-loading-bar/router';

// for Core import:
import { LoadingBarModule } from '@ngx-loading-bar/core';

import { AppComponent } from './app';

@NgModule({
  ...
  imports: [
    ...

    // for HttpClient use:
    LoadingBarHttpClientModule,

    // for Router use:
    LoadingBarRouterModule

    // for Core use:
    LoadingBarModule
  ],
})
export class AppModule {}

3. Include ngx-loading-bar in your app component:

import { Component } from '@angular/core';

@Component({
  selector: 'app',
  template: `
    ...
    <ngx-loading-bar></ngx-loading-bar>
  `,
})
export class AppComponent {}

Customize ngx-loading-bar

You can pass the following inputs to customize the view:

Input Description
color The color of loading bar. Default value is #29d.
includeSpinner Hide or show the Spinner. Default value is true.
includeBar Hide or show the Bar. Default value is true.
height The height of loading bar. Default value is 2px.
diameter The diameter of the progress spinner. Default value is 14px.
fixed set loading bar on the top of the screen or inside a container. Default value is true.
value Set the value of the progress bar.

Ignoring particular requests

The loading bar can also be forced to ignore certain requests, for example, when long-polling or periodically sending debugging information back to the server.

http-client:

Http client doesn't allow passing custom option, in order to achieve that we made a temporary solution (by passing the option throught the header) that will be removed once http-client come with a proper solution.

// ignore a particular $http GET:
httpClient.get('/status', {
  headers: { ignoreLoadingBar: '' }
});

router:

  • using the router.navigateByUrl() method:
this.router.navigateByUrl('/custom-path', { state: { ignoreLoadingBar: true } });
  • using the routerLink directive:
<a routerLink="/custom-path" [state]="{ ignoreLoadingBar: true }">Go</a>

Manually manage loading service

1. Import the LoadingBarModule

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';

import { LoadingBarModule } from '@ngx-loading-bar/core';

@NgModule({
  ...
  imports: [
    ...

    LoadingBarModule.forRoot(),
  ],
})
export class AppModule {}

2. Inject/Use LoadingBarService

import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { LoadingBarService } from '@ngx-loading-bar/core';

@Component({
  selector: 'app',
  template: `
    ...
    <ngx-loading-bar></ngx-loading-bar>
    <button (click)="startLoading()">start</button>
    <button (click)="stopLoading()">stop</button>
  `,
})
export class App {
  constructor(private loadingBar: LoadingBarService) {}

  startLoading() {
    this.loadingBar.start();
  }
  
  stopLoading() {
    this.loadingBar.complete();
  }
}

Integration with Material Progress bar

import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { LoadingBarService } from '@ngx-loading-bar/core';

@Component({
  selector: 'app',
  template: `
    ...
    <mat-progress-bar mode="determinate" [value]="loader.progress$|async"></mat-progress-bar>
  `,
})
export class App {
  constructor(public loader: LoadingBarService) {}
}

Lazy Loading modules

If you're using Lazy Loaded Modules in your app, please use LoadingBarRouterModule, because although a request is being fired in the nework console to fetch your lazy load module.js file, it won't trigger the LoadingBarHttpClientModule.
