Splash Screen

If you try to open an UI5 app inside a phone device that has a slow connection you will see a blank page for a long time. The user does not get to know if something is going wrong or he still has to wait till the device finished loading.

For that reason i am using a splash screen (app loading screen) that shows a nice animation while loading the needed library parts.

To be faster than light and quicker than warp ;-) the needed markup has to be included directly into the main html file. Doing it this way the browser can instantly show the splash screen right after loading the html markup.
