    Vue.js notifications

    This is a fork and port of Vue 2 vue-notifications created by euvl to now support Vue 3. If you're using Vue 2.x use his version.


    npm install --save @kyvg/vue3-notification
    yarn add @kyvg/vue3-notification

    Add dependencies to your main.js:

    import { createApp } from 'vue'
    import Notifications from '@kyvg/vue3-notification'
    const app = createApp({...})

    Add the global component to your App.vue:

    <notifications />


    Trigger notifications from your .vue files:

    // simple
    this.$notify("Hello user!");
    // using options
      title: "Important message",
      text: "Hello user!",

    Or trigger notifications from other files, for example, your router:

    import { notify } from "@kyvg/vue3-notification";
      title: "Authorization",
      text: "You have been logged in!",

    Or use Composition API style:

    import { useNotification } from "@kyvg/vue3-notification";
    const { notify}  = useNotification()
      title: "Authorization",
      text: "You have been logged in!",


    Vue 2.x syntax

      title: "Vue 2 notification",

    Vue 3.x syntax

    import { notify } from "@kyvg/vue3-notification";
      title: "Vue 3 notification 🎉",

    Vue 3.x Composition API syntax

    import { useNotification } from "@kyvg/vue3-notification";
    const notification = useNotification()
      title: "Vue 3 notification 🎉",

    Also you can use destructuring assignment

    import { useNotification } from "@kyvg/vue3-notification";
    const { notify } = useNotification()
      title: "Vue 3 notification 🎉",

    Component props

    The majority of settings for the Notifications component are configured using props:

    <notifications position="bottom right" classes="my-custom-class" />

    Note that all props are optional.

    Name Type Default Description
    position String/Array 'top right' Part of the screen where notifications will pop out
    width Number/String 300 Width of notification holder, can be %, px string or number.
    Valid values: '100%', '200px', 200
    classes String/Array 'vue-notification' List of classes that will be applied to notification element
    group String null Name of the notification holder, if specified
    duration Number 3000 Time (in ms) to keep the notification on screen (if negative - notification will stay forever or until clicked)
    speed Number 300 Time (in ms) to show / hide notifications
    animation-type String 'css' Type of animation, currently supported types are css and velocity
    animation-name String null Animation name required for css animation
    animation Object Custom Animation configuration for Velocity animation
    max Number Infinity Maximum number of notifications that can be shown in notification holder
    reverse Boolean false Show notifications in reverse order
    ignoreDuplicates Boolean false Ignore repeated instances of the same notification
    closeOnClick Boolean true Close notification when clicked
    pauseOnHover Boolean false Keep the notification open while mouse hovers on notification


    Notifications are triggered via the API:

        // (optional)
        // Name of the notification holder
        group: 'foo',
        // (optional)
        // Title (will be wrapped in div.notification-title)
        title: 'This is the <em>title</em>',
        // Content (will be wrapped in div.notification-content)
        text: 'This is some <b>content</b>',
        // (optional)
        // Class that will be assigned to the notification
        type: 'warn',
        // (optional, override)
        // Time (in ms) to keep the notification on screen
        duration: 10000,
        // (optional, override)
        // Time (in ms) to show / hide notifications
        speed: 1000
        // (optional)
        // Data object that can be used in your template
        data: {}

    To remove notifications, include the clean: true parameter.

      group: "foo", // clean only the foo group
      clean: true,

    Plugin Options

    Configure the plugin itself using an additional options object:

    app.use(Notifications, { name: "alert" });

    All options are optional:

    Name Type Default Description
    name String notify Defines the instance name. It's prefixed with the dollar sign. E.g. $notify
    componentName String notifications The component's name
    velocity Object undefined A Velocity library object (see Animation)

    Note: setting componentName can cause issues when using SSR.



    Position the component on the screen using the position prop:

    <notifications position="bottom right" />

    It requires a string with two keywords for vertical and horizontal postion.

    Format: "<vertical> <horizontal>".

    • Horizontal options: left, center, right
    • Vertical options: top, bottom

    Default is "top right".


    Width can be set using a number or string with optional % or px extensions:

    <notifications :width="100" />
    <notifications width="100" />
    <notifications width="100%" />
    <notifications width="100px" />


    Set the type of a notification (warn, error, success, etc) by adding a type property to the call:

    this.$notify({ type: "success", text: "The operation completed" });

    This will add the type (i.e. "success") as a CSS class name to the .vue-notification element.

    See the Styling section for how to hook onto the class and style the popup.


    For different classes of notifications, i.e...

    • authentication errors (top center)
    • app notifications (bottom-right)

    ...specify the group attribute:

    <notifications group="auth" position="top" />
    <notifications group="app" position="bottom right" />

    Trigger a notification for a specific group by specifying it in the API call:

    this.$notify({ group: "auth", text: "Wrong password, please try again" });



    Vue Notifications comes with default styling, but it's easy to replace with your own.

    Specify one or more class hooks via the classes prop on the global component:

    <notifications classes="my-notification" />

    This will add the supplied class/classes to individual notification elements:

    <div class="vue-notification-wrapper">
      <div class="vue-notification-template my-notification">
        <div class="notification-title">Info</div>
        <div class="notification-content">You have been logged in</div>

    Then include custom css rules to style the notifications:

    // style of the notification itself
    .my-notification {
      // style for title line
      .notification-title {
      // style for content
      .notification-content {
      // additional styling hook when using`type` parameter, i.e. this.$notify({ type: 'success', message: 'Yay!' })
      &.success {
      &.info {
      &.error {

    Note that the default rules are:

    .vue-notification {
      // styling
      margin: 0 5px 5px;
      padding: 10px;
      font-size: 12px;
      color: #ffffff;
      // default (blue)
      background: #44a4fc;
      border-left: 5px solid #187fe7;
      // types (green, amber, red)
      &.success {
        background: #68cd86;
        border-left-color: #42a85f;
      &.warn {
        background: #ffb648;
        border-left-color: #f48a06;
      &.error {
        background: #e54d42;
        border-left-color: #b82e24;


    To completely replace notification content, use Vue's slots system:

      <template #body="props">
        <div class="my-notification">
          <p class="title">
            {{ props.item.title }}
          <button class="close" @click="close">
            <i class="fa fa-fw fa-close"></i>
          <div v-html="props.item.text"/>

    The props object has the following members:

    Name Type Description
    item Object Notification object
    close Function A function to close the notification


    Vue Notification can use the Velocity library to power the animations using JavaScript.

    To use, manually install velocity-animate & pass the library to the vue-notification plugin (the reason for doing that is to reduce the size of this plugin).

    In your main.js:

    import { createApp } from 'vue'
    import Notifications from '@kyvg/vue3-notification'
    import velocity from 'velocity-animate'
    const app = createApp({...})
    app.use(Notifications, { velocity })

    In the template, set the animation-type prop:

    <notifications animation-type="velocity" />

    The default configuration is:

      enter: { opacity: [1, 0] },
      leave: { opacity: [0, 1] }

    To assign a custom animation, use the animation prop:

    <notifications animation-type="velocity" :animation="animation" />

    Note that enter and leave can be an object or a function that returns an object:

    computed: {
      animation () {
        return {
           * Animation function
           * Runs before animating, so you can take the initial height, width, color, etc
           * @param  {HTMLElement}  element  The notification element
          enter (element) {
            let height = element.clientHeight
            return {
              // animates from 0px to "height"
              height: [height, 0],
              // animates from 0 to random opacity (in range between 0.5 and 1)
              opacity: [Math.random() * 0.5 + 0.5, 0]
          leave: {
            height: 0,
            opacity: 0

    Programatically Closing

    const id = // This can be any unique number
      text: 'This message will be removed immediately'

    Or with composition API style:

    import { useNotification } from "@kyvg/vue3-notification"
    const notification = useNotification()
    const id = // This can be any unique number
      text: 'This message will be removed immediately'
