Hide with x-cloak

If you want to hide some HTML tags before Alpine JS has done it’s magic you can use the x-cloak attribute. This attribute is removed when Alpine JS initializes. So with this information you could implement a very easy “hide-before-init” functionality without any issue. Here is a very common way to get this benefit.

/* your css styles */
[x-cloak] {
    display: none;
}
<div
    class="ta-youtube ta-youtube-aspect-hd border bg-gray-800 rounded-lg shadow-xl overflow-hidden max-w-3xl"
    x-data="taYoutube()"
    x-init="init()"
    data-id="nAULsoAQn2g"
>
    <div x-cloak>
        <!--  CONTENT TO BE HIDDEN BEFORE INIT -->
    </div>
    <!--  YOUTUBE PLAYER -->
</div>
