Papercut: When fetching the data about a ZObject, show a pending animation state rather than just no response
Open, LowPublic

Description

Often, the user will take an action that requires a network fetch before we know what to render, e.g. when you select a ZObject on Special:EvaluateFunctionCall. In the second or two before we have content to show, we should show a spinner, pending placehoder, or some other widget that demonstrates that things are happening in the background, rather than leaving the user to just hope.

I'm going to try taking this on.

I'm assuming a codex component is preferable? I only currently see a progress bar available for loading. @AAlhazwani-WMF any thoughts?
