Monday, November 17th, 2008

Hi folks! long time ago from last tutorial, eh? Sorry for that but now you know that I spent last days working hard on a new online jukebox (for people who love music you know :P ). If you want to try it I will give you some invitations for the private beta to get feedback from you (post in comments!).

Well, let’s focus on the new tutorial called: “How to create a stylish loading bar as Gmail in javascript“. As you can suppose it will be about how to create the famous loading bar from gmail or other sites as (“the spanish facebook“), etc.

But the magic on this tutorial isn’t the loading bar, it’s the way to load all resources like javascript, css, and other static files that our web application will need, to delete user waiting times during his visit.

You can test a working live example over here:

Check out the final result!

Tested in: Firefox, Internet Explorer 6 & 7, Opera, Safari & Chrome.

As always, the rest of the tutorial after the jump ;)
