OOUI demos: Hide the content until JS is ready
Closed, DeclinedPublic


When you look at the OOUI demos, whenever you switch "tabs" (from "widgets" to "icons" etc) there's a brief second where the title loads -- unstylized -- and then immediately "jumps" to the structure we expect.

This is because we inject all CSS through the JS. That's fine, but we could, fairly easily, set the original content to have display:none (or even a spinner?) and when the JS is ready, unhide the content.

The "jumping" of stylized stuff is pretty jarring.

In short: We should fix the loading, not hide the loading.

Change 518902 abandoned by VolkerE:
Demos: Hide until content is ready

This is not a useful approach, we should rather fix the loading instead of hiding the loading.
