Skeleton screens - do we display them in case of lack of content or lower amount of content?



  • Currently, we add skeleton screens with a progress bar while the page is loading with data (in a data-driven platform). I'm wondering what to do in the case where after loading for some time, no data is available, or i.e. just one card is available instead of a few cards - like the skeleton card as suggested. Do we still use skeleton cards in this case? What's the usual flow?



  • I would still use them as if they are just containers, empty albeit, but still the layout that you would expect. If there is no content, then the container will be empty with a message inside informing the user that there is no data available.
