Minimal master page in SharePoint 2013:

Step1: Select “Design Manager” and click on “Edit Master pages

Step2: Select “Create a minimal master page” and enter the minimal master page name “SampleMinimal” and click on “Ok” button.

 Step3: Open the minimal master page through SharePoint designer 2013 and add the below lines of code in “SampleMinimal.html”
Reason: “Design Manager” Bug in SharePoint 2013:
The actual issue is users are unable to create list/library after applying the minimal master page.
But when we are trying to create a new Document-library or List using "add an app" link it always shows "loading...” as shown in image and never ends.
<div style="display: none;">
<!--SPM:<SharePoint:AjaxDelta id="DeltaPlaceHolderLeftNavBar" BlockElement="true" runat="server">-->
<!--SPM:<asp:ContentPlaceHolder id="PlaceHolderLeftNavBar" runat="server">-->
<!--SPM:<SharePoint:AjaxDelta id="DeltaPlaceHolderPageTitleInTitleArea" runat="server">-->
<!--SPM:<asp:ContentPlaceHolder id="PlaceHolderPageTitleInTitleArea" runat="server">-->

Step4: Publish the major of version to the “SampleMinimal” minimal master page.
Step5: Set this minimal master page as default master to the site.

Please let me know if faced any issues.
