Display Spinner till API Response in angular 6

For that purpose I would use http interceptor for checking certain events during http request. Let's have component which will have some loader and put that component on same level like router outlet or app component. From our interceptor we will communicate with service to tell our component whenever show loader or not.

There is simple angular 6 example for that: https://stackblitz.com/edit/angular-hgxcsu

If you insist on not installing any packages then use a boolean flag to tell if the loading has finished yet

Get a loading animation from https://loading.io/ to put in the loading section of the html

/* data.services.ts */

import { Injectable } from '@angular/core';
import { HttpClient } from '@angular/common/http';

  providedIn: 'root'

export class DataService {
  constructor(private http: HttpClient) { }
  getUsers() {
    return this.http.get('https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/users')

/* users.component.ts *

import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
import {DataService} from '../data.service';
import { Observable } from 'rxjs';

  selector: 'app-users',
  templateUrl: './users.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./users.component.css']

export class UsersComponent implements OnInit {
  users: Object; // <-- Do not use $ at the end of a variable unless it is an observable
  loading = true;
  constructor(private data: DataService) { }
  ngOnInit() {

    this.data.getUsers().subscribe(data => {
      this.users = data;
      this.loading = false;

<div *ngIf="loading else loaded">
    loading ...

<ng-template #loaded>
    <div *ngFor="let user of users">{{user.name}}</div>

You can use ng4-loading-spinner

Execute npm i ng4-loading-spinner --save

Import module to your application root module

import { Ng4LoadingSpinnerModule } from 'ng4-loading-spinner';

Make an import entry

 imports: [ Ng4LoadingSpinnerModule.forRoot() ]

Include spinner component to your root level component.

<ng4-loading-spinner> </ng4-loading-spinner>

use show() and hide() inside subscribe callback

   import { Ng4LoadingSpinnerService } from 'ng4-loading-spinner';
            private spinnerService: Ng4LoadingSpinnerService,
            private data: DataService
        ) { }
       ngOnInit() {
         this.spinnerService.show();//show the spinner
    this.data.getUsers().subscribe(data => {
      this.users$ = data; 
       this.spinnerService.hide();//hide the spinner if success
    (error)=>this.spinnerService.hide();//hide the spinner in case of error
