OpenFin Notification Center

This library is deprecated. We will stop publishing updates to it after July 2024. Use @openfin/workspace/notifications instead.


The OpenFin Notification Center provides developers with a uniform way to create, display and organize desktop notifications as well as responding to notification events.

Notifications will be displayed as toasts as well as being listed and organized in a Notification Center. The Notification Center can be accessed by clicking on the Notifications icon in the system tray.

This project consist of 3 parts:

  1. The Notification Center, displaying and managing notifications
  2. The Notification Center Client Library, exposing APIs for applications to create and manage notifications
  3. The Notification Studio, A visual editor for user notifications.


  • Create notifications.
  • Clear and dismiss notifications.
  • Attach handlers for when notifications are created, closed, and interacted with.
  • Attach indicators and buttons with actions to notifications.
  • Persist notifications in the Notification Center.
  • Persist notification toasts.
  • Create expiring and/or future notifications.
  • Search notifications in the Notification Center.
  • Create notifications with markdown, form, premade or custom templated notification content.
  • Create grouping streams for notifications.
  • Create pop-out frame windows for individiual notification senders and streams.
  • Customize to specify the Notification Center and notification toast corners on screen.
  • Customize Notification Center theme via Workspace Platforms.

Getting Started

Integrating the Notification Center within an application is done by importing the Client API.

Import the Client API

npm install openfin-notifications

The client library is also available as a resource which can be included via <script> tag:

<script src="<VERSION>/openfin-notifications.js"></script>

This will expose the global variable notifications with the API methods documented in the link below. Example:

const notes = await notifications.getAll();

The client module exports a set of functions, documented in the API docs.


Documentation is available here.
