Lost connection | Django LiveView

It may be the case that the connection is lost, when user has lost the internet connection or the server has been restarted, and it's a problem because Django LiveView depends on a constant connection. In these cases, the client automatically will try to reconnect to the server. But while this happens, the user will have to be informed and any type of interaction blocked. If you do not block user interactions, actions will accumulate in the browser until communication is reestablished. Where they will all be sent at once. If, for example, the user impatiently presses the next page button 10 times, the user will skip 10 pages. It is a problem for him and for the server that will process many instructions at once.

To solve this problem, you can create a tag with the #no-connection id in your main layout, or HTML fragment that all templates share.

<section id="no-connection" class="no-connection no-connection--hide">
    <h2>Lost connection</h2>
    <p>Trying to reconnect...</p>

Add add the followind styles.

.no-connection {
    position: fixed;
    inset: 0;
    z-index: 9999;
    background-color: black;
    color: white;
    display: flex;
    justify-content: center;
    align-items: center;
    flex-direction: column;

.no-connection--hide {
    display: flex;

If there is no connection, the #no-connection will be displayed with .no-connection--show class. Otherwise, it will be hidden with the .no-connection--hide class.
