Page loader progress bar


I'd like to make search form with some kind of "progress bar" - user
posts input, and AJAX overlay shows current progress (only step is
needed like 20%)

Do you have any suggestions how to achieve this effect?

On the serverside: background process that can return progress feedback (you’ll need to implement this yourself, and your search engine will have to be able to return progress too), pass the search task to the background processor

On the clientside:

  • PeriodicalUpdater/Executer

  • Comet

  • Juggernaut

Unless you are talking about really long request/response cycles for your searches and you know that the time it takes them to complete is not caused by bad indexing/optimizing, I really don’t see why you would need this. We handle a fair deal of data and our searches take fractions of a second, no matter how complex the query might be (most of the time, Solr handles the searches anyway).

Best regards

I need to download and parse data from other sites, so the whole
process could take 15-100 seconds, that's why I'd like to at least
show "I'm doing this and this" at the moment :slight_smile:
