Butter smooth loading non-jumping images for react that just work

React Smooth Image

Are you tired of your react app's layout flashing around because an
image is yet to load and its taking zero space until then?

Does the progressive image loading from top bottom makes you cringe ?

You wish there was something neat out there that just works ?

Yea, mee too.
