The following optional properties are available. All extra props will be passed to the component's root SVG element.

Property Default value Type Description
size 50 number or string Set the size as number of pixels or any valid CSS string (e.g. size="100%").
thickness 100 number Set lines width as a percentage of default thickness.
сolor '#38ad48' string Set the color. Can be set to any valid CSS string (hex, rgb, rgba).
secondaryColor 'rgba(0,0,0,0.44)' string Set the secondary color. Can be set to any valid CSS string (hex, rgb, rgba).
speed 100 number Set the animation speed as a percentage of default speed.
enabled true boolean Show/Hide the spinner.
still false boolean Disable/Enable spinner animation.
style undefined object Pass CSS styles to the root SVG element

Server Side Rendering

While the library works with SSR, the spinner's animation CSS will be attached to the head only on the hydrate phase, which means the spinners will start animating only after the page is fully loaded. To work around this, include the needed css in your bundle.css manually:

/* App.css */

/* to load animation for a specific spinner */
@import "~spinners-react/lib/SpinnerCircular.css";

/* to load animations for all spinners at once */
@import "~spinners-react/lib/index.css";

Minimizing Bundle Size

The library is thin and do not rely on any style library / runtime to be used. To reduce the bundle size even more load only the used components. If you're using ES6 modules and a bundler that supports tree-shaking you can safely use named imports:

import { SpinnerCircular } from 'spinners-react';

It that's not the case you're able to use path imports to avoid pulling in unused spinners:

// ESM
import { SpinnerCircular } from 'spinners-react/lib/esm/SpinnerCircular';
// or CJS
const { SpinnerCircular } = require('spinners-react/lib/cjs/SpinnerCircular');
// or UMD
const { SpinnerCircular } = require('spinners-react/lib/cjs/SpinnerCircular');

UMD bundle usage

<!doctype html>
    <script src="https://unpkg.com/react@16/umd/react.production.min.js"></script>
    <script src="https://unpkg.com/react-dom@16/umd/react-dom.production.min.js"></script>
    <!-- to load a specific spinner -->
    <script src="https://unpkg.com/spinners-react/lib/umd/SpinnerCircular.min.js"></script>
    <!-- to load all spinners at once -->
    <script src="https://unpkg.com/spinners-react/lib/umd/index.min.js"></script>

    <div id="root"></div>
