Introduction

The Skeleton component is used to provide a visual placeholder that mimics the structure of the content that is being loaded. It helps improve user experience by indicating that content is on its way, thus reducing perceived loading time. The Skeleton component enhances the overall look and feel of the application by keeping users informed and engaged during data fetching operations.
