      Description

      Since JalviewJS takes a wee while to download and evaluate, it would be great to have a visual indicator like a loading screen.

      [~ben_soares] notes in https://issues.jalview.org/browse/JAL-3279?focusedCommentId=22885&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#comment-22885

      Would a getdown-like splashscreen be an idea for Jalview-JS? i.e. just a pop-up div with the same background and progress bar whilst the .js are loading? The progress bar could presumably take its cue from the output?
      e.g.
