    This is a component designed to provide "snackbar" notification messages and notification stacks (similar to how notifications stack on OS X). I would suggest reading the usage guidelines for snackbars.

    Getting Started

    Install the component via npm: npm install react-notification.

    If you are using the React 0.13.x or lower, you can install the previously compatible version of this component with npm i react-notification@2.3.0 -S. The current version only works with React 0.14.x.

    Please read the contributing guide if you are interested in contributing. If you are coming from version 1.0.0, there is an upgrade guide to help you make the switch. If you have questions, please feel free to create an issue on GitHub.


    Single notification:

    import { Notification } from 'react-notification';

    Notification stack:

    import { NotificationStack } from 'react-notification';
    import { OrderedSet } from 'immutable';
    constructor () {
      this.state = {
        notifications: OrderedSet()
    addNotification () {
      const newCount = count + 1;
      return this.setState({
        notifications: this.state.notifications.add({
          message: `Notification ipsum...`,
          key: 'some UID',
          action: 'Dismiss',
          onClick: () => this.removeNotification('some UID'),
    removeNotification (count) {
        notifications: this.state.notifications.filter(n => n.key !== count)
    render () {
      return (
          onDismiss={notification => this.setState({
            notifications: this.state.notifications.delete(notification)

    See the examples for more context on how to use a notification stack.


    For Notification component:

    Name Type Description Required Default
    isActive boolean If true, the notification is visible true false
    message string or React element The message or component for the notification true
    title string The title for the notification
    action string The name of the action, e.g., "close" or "undo"
    style boolean Setting this prop to false will disable all inline styles
    barStyle object Custom snackbar styles
    activeBarStyle object Custom snackbar styles when the bar is active
    actionStyle object Custom action styles
    className string Custom class to apply to the top-level component
    activeClassName string Custom class to apply to the top-level component when active 'notification-bar-active'
    dismissAfter number or false Timeout for onDismiss event 2000

    The style prop useful if you are not using React inline styles and would like to use CSS instead. See styles for more.

    For NotificationStack component:

    Name Type Description Required Default
    notifications array Array of notifications to render true

    Update v5.0.3: Now notifications used in a stack can have all properties included in the regular notification component.


    For Notification component:

    Event Description
    onClick Callback function to run when the action is clicked
    onDismiss Callback function to run when dismissAfter timer runs out

    For NotificationStack component:

    Event Description Arguments
    onDismiss Callback function to run when dismissAfter timer runs out for a notification The object for the notification currently being dismissed


    This component does use basic inline CSS to style the position and visibility of the notification. You have two options for adding additional styles:

    1. Remove all inline styles and use only CSS.
    2. Add additional inline styles via the style prop.

    The DOM tree of the component for reference:

    <div class="notification-bar">
      <div class="notification-bar-wrapper" onClick={this.props.onClick}>
        <span class="notification-bar-message">{this.props.message}</span>
        <span class="notification-bar-action">{this.props.action}</span>

    To use additional inline styles, return two objects. The bar object applies styles to the entire notification "snackbar" and the action object applies styles to the action message. Under the hood, this uses Object.assign to handle properly combining styles.

    I would highly suggest using this method since the styles included in the component by default handle the visibility of the notification. If you remove these styles, the component won't actually show or hide itself.
