Page Scroll Progress Bar using JavaScript

In this JavaScript tutorial, we will create a page scroll progress bar. This progress bar will indicate the scroll percentage of the current page.

We will keep the progress bar at the top of the page using position: fixed and a higher z-index value.

Step 1: HTML

<div id="page-progress-bar"></div>

Step 2: CSS

#page-progress-bar {
  position: fixed;
  top: 0;
  left: 0;
  width: 0%;
  height: 8px;
  background: linear-gradient(to right, #5B61ED, #B788E5);
	z-index: 99;

Step 3: JavaScript

const pageProgressBar = document.getElementById('page-progress-bar');
const pageContent = document.getElementById('page')
const pageContentHeight = pageContent.offsetHeight;
const winHeight = window.outerHeight;
const scrollHeight = pageContentHeight - winHeight;

const animatePageProgressBar = () => {
  scrollPosition = document.documentElement.scrollTop;
  barWidth = (100 / scrollHeight) * scrollPosition; = (barWidth +'%');

window.addEventListener("scroll", animatePageProgressBar)
