ACPaaS UI JS Notification Store


The @acpaas-ui/js-notification-store package provides a singleton store to save and easily access notifications throughout your app. You can load up a message map and trigger notifications by handle. On top of that, you can set targets to hold your notifications (e.g. popups, statusbar, forms). Notifications are returned as BehaviorSubjects, allowing you to subscribe to changes.



npm install @acpaas-ui/js-notification-store --save


yarn add @acpaas-ui/js-notification-store


// ES2015
import { NotificationStore } from '@acpaas-ui/js-notification-store';

const store = new NotificationStore({
    404: 'not found'

store.triggerNotification('404', 'statusbar');


Loading messages

To load a message map simply provide it in the constructor:

import NotificationStore from 'aui-notification-store';

const store = new NotificationStore({
    404: 'not found'

If the allowOverrides option is set to true:

NotificationStore.allowOverrides = true;

you can overwrite the messages with each new instance:

const store2 = new NotificationStore({
    404: 'not here'

or, you can call the loadMessages method on the instance:

    404: 'not here'

In either case, you need to set the allowOverrides option to true or the existing messages will be preserved.

Triggering notifications

To trigger a notification, you call the triggerNotification method on your store instance. Provide a handle, a (optional) target and some (also optional) extra options:

const store = new NotificationStore({
    404: 'not found'

store.triggerNotification('404', 'statusbar', { timer: 1000 });

Clearing notifications

You can clear a notification by calling the clearNotification method on the store:

const notifications = store.getNotifications('statusbar');
const notificationToClear = notifications.find(notification => notification.handle === 'clearme');


Subscribing to notifications

Each instance has a notifications property, which holds all current notifications as a BehaviorSubject which you can subscribe to:

store.notifications.subscribe(newNotifications => {
    // do something

or fetch the current value from (which is an object with a Map of the notifications for each target:

const notifications = store.notifications.getValue();
