CSS Gradient Loading Animation

In this article we are gonna build a loading spinner for you website stay tuned for that first let's look what are we building -


We just need simple div to create this animation. For this animation we have used pseudo classes and a normal keyframe in which we just rotate the div.


<div class="loader"></div>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode


.loader {
  position: relative;
  width: 200px;
  height: 200px;
  border-radius: 10rem;
  border: 3px solid white;
  background: linear-gradient(#eb31b0, #e4c352, #7df8d6);
  box-shadow: 0px 0px 100px -50px black;
  animation: animate 1s linear infinite;

.loader::before {
  position: absolute;
  content: "";
  background: #fff;
  left: 50%;
  top: 50%;
  transform: translate(-50%, -50%);
  width: 80%;
  height: 80%;
  border-radius: 10rem;
  border: 3px solid white;
  box-shadow: inset 0px 0px 100px -70px #111;

@keyframes animate {
  from {
    transform: rotate(0deg);
  to {
    transform: rotate(360deg);
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Suggestion: It might be better setting the border-radius in both selectors to 50% so they are relative to the size of the element.
