Animated Page Loader Using CSS


Recently, I attended a workshop of web designs I learned lot's of thing from my colleagues regarding the web design, create animations, visual effects using CSS, jquery and javascript, Today finally I have created a simple page loader without using javascript or jquery and only using the pure CSS that I wanna share with you that might helpful for you for learn something. 

Requirement


1) Explain what is the animated page loader?
2) How to implement an animated page loader, explain in brief with example.

What is the page loader?


A page loader is a tinny animation that communicates visually with the visitor and indicates that the web page or the content of the web page is fetching data from the server or loading and need to wait for a few seconds till the web page is load successfully.

Implementation


So, Lets we start the implementation of creating an animated page loader using CSS step by step.

Step 1: Open any text editor like notepad or notepad++.

Step 2: Write the following basic HTML page structure into a text editor as shown below. 
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>Animated Page Loader Using CSS | Codingvila</title>
 
</head>
<body>
 
</body>
</html>
Step 3: Within the <Head> tag, create a <style> tag and write a following CSS within the <style> tag as showd below.
<style>
        .socket {
            width200px;
            height200px;
            positionabsolute;
            left50%;
            margin-left-100px;
            top50%;
            margin-top-100px;
        }
 
        .hex-brick {
            background#223c88;
