How can I get a "Please wait..." HTML banner up while qooxdoo loads?
I think I got this to work a couple of years ago, but searching thru my
index.html's from them cameup empty: how can I stick something in my
index.html that at least says "Now loading..." so they have something to
look at during initial qooxdoo loads? I tried just sticking a div in
Note that I am not looking for a fancy progress bar, tho that would be
nice. Just a static bit of html to distract/warn them that the delay is
where waitroller.gif is a simple animated gif (google wait .gif)

What do the dev's think about it? I would certainly support an enhancement bug on this.

Ah, but qooxdoo will be breeding a whole new generation of HTML
know-nothings like me. :)
Meanwhile, Werner's patch works great except the <noscript> warning I
had in there that JS is turned off does not appear (if I turn JS off to
test). Instead I get my fancy new "Loading..." animated gif.
I tried putting the loading code inside a <script> tag but then it does
not appear under normal operation.
So I think there are two things the standard generated index.html could
do: check that JS is turned on and put up a spinner by default. Those
are both the way good UI apps should behave. And it would be relatively
easier for folks to take things out of index.html than to figure out
what to put in.
Right now I am abandoning the warning to keep the spinner working.
