Custom loading screen on Glitch projects


Since Glitch projects sleep after 5 minutes of inactivity, when you enter the page (project I’m working on: you face the Loading... screen. The only issue is that it doesn’t fit your website what-so-ever. Is there anyway to change it or is this comming soon. If there is no way to change it then I hope it will become a feature. ;D

(If I made any grammar/punctuational mistakes then please don’t complain)


When you say ‘it doesn’t fit your website’ do you mean your own site as opposed to ours? We’re working at the moment on a more neutral design for the loading screen. We don’t have plans to make it user-configurable, but if we did it’d likely be a paid-for feature down the line.


I mean user-made website’s. Not Glitch’s website.


Thanks for clarifying - so yeah, hopefully the new more neutral Loading page design will be less of an issue for you once it’s in place.


Okay, thanks! Also, I find that the page refreshes a lot when loading/intializing too, is there anyway to stop that since some users may have a bad internet connection and it could appear as an issue for them.


We’ll also be removing that in the new design!


c: Thanks for your help. I’m glad the refresh will be removed as it was quite annoying.


Well I mean, you could always go with basic HTML.

<!DOCTYPE html>


It won’t work like that! I’m talking about the built-in Glitch loading screen.


I’m aware, they can make it possible to add a file like _glitch-config.json and add a value "loading": "./static/load.html" and add the file


Ooh, I’ve not heard of that before. I’ll check it out later.


Im saying this in general, they should make it like that so users have more control over it


Ah,I see. I hope they do release something like that in the near future! :slight_smile:


Me too! We can upvote it though!
