Working Demo

StackBlitz Demo


ngx-spinner is available via npm and yarn

Using npm:

$ npm install ngx-spinner --save

Using yarn:

$ yarn add ngx-spinner

Using angular-cli:

$ ng add ngx-spinner


Import NgxSpinnerModule in in the root module(AppModule):

import { NgModule, CUSTOM_ELEMENTS_SCHEMA } from '@angular/core';
// Import library module
import { NgxSpinnerModule } from "ngx-spinner";
  imports: [
    // ...
export class AppModule {}

Add NgxSpinnerService service wherever you want to use the ngx-spinner.

import { NgxSpinnerService } from "ngx-spinner";
class AppComponent implements OnInit {
  constructor(private spinner: NgxSpinnerService) {}
  ngOnInit() {
    /** spinner starts on init */
    setTimeout(() => {
      /** spinner ends after 5 seconds */
    }, 5000);

Now use in your template


See Demo


  • NgxSpinnerService.show() Shows the spinner
  • NgxSpinnerService.hide() Hides the spinner

Available Options

  • [bdColor]: RGBA color format. To set background-color for backdrop, default rgba(51,51,51,0.8) where aplha value(0.8) is opacity of backdrop
  • [size]: Anyone from small, default, medium, large. To set size of spinner, default large
  • [color]: Any css color format. To set color of spinner, default #fff
  • [type]: Choose any animation spinner from Load Awesome. To set type of spinner, default ball-scale-multiple
  • [fullScreen]: true or false To enable/disable fullscreen mode(overlay), default true
  • [name]: For multiple spinners To set name for spinner, default primary
  • [zIndex]: For dynamic z-index To set z-index for the spinner, default 99999
  • [template]: For custom spinner image To set custom template for the custom spinner, default null

Using Spinner Type

  <p style="font-size: 20px; color: white">Loading...</p>

Using Custom Spinner

  bdColor="rgba(0, 0, 0, 1)">
  template="<img src='https://media.giphy.com/media/o8igknyuKs6aY/giphy.gif' />


  • You can pass HTML code as loading text now, instead of input parameter(loadingText). Check above code for reference.
  • If you want multiple ngx-spinner instance, just add name attribute with ngx-spinner component. But in this case, you've to pass that particular name of a spinner in show/hide method. Check Demo
  • You can also change the options/configuration of spinner through service now.
this.spinner.show("mySpinner", {
  type: "line-scale-party",
  size: "large",
  bdColor: "rgba(0, 0, 0, 1)",
  color: "white",
  template: "<img src='https://media.giphy.com/media/o8igknyuKs6aY/giphy.gif' />"

How to use type?

  • Go to the Load Awesome.
  • Select any animation, copy name of animation, replace all spaces with hyphen(-) and all letters should be lowercase.
    • Let's say if I select "Ball 8bits" animation then type will be ball-8bits.
    • For more information you can check it out Demo

Useful Tips

  • Make sure you've added CUSTOM_ELEMENTS_SCHEMA as your schema in your main module.
  • If you use multiple show() methods in a single component or single function one after another then wrap the show() method within setTimeout() method to avoid any rendering issue.
  • When you want to use spinner inside any container(fullScreen: false), in that case your parent element of spinner must have position: relative; style property.
  • You can't set custom template through service options, it's a limitation by Angular itself.
