    Flash messages, or alerts, inform users of successful or pending actions. Use them sparingly. Don't show more than one at a time.


    Flash messages start off looking decently neutral—they're just light blue rounded rectangles.

    <div class="flash">
      Flash message goes here.

    You can put multiple paragraphs of text in a flash message—the last paragraph's bottom margin will be automatically override.

    <div class="flash">
      <p>This is a longer flash message in it's own paragraph. It ends up looking something like this. If we keep adding more text, it'll eventually wrap to a new line.</p>
      <p>And this is another paragraph.</p>

    Should the need arise, you can quickly space out your flash message from surrounding content with a .flash-messages wrapper. Note the extra top and bottom margin in the example below.

    <div class="flash-messages">
      <div class="flash">
        Flash message goes here.


    Add .flash-warn, .flash-error, or .flash-success to the flash message to make it yellow, red, or green, respectively.

    <div class="flash flash-warn">
      Flash message goes here.
    <div class="flash flash-error">
      Flash message goes here.
    <div class="flash flash-success">
      Flash message goes here.

    With icon

    Add an icon to the left of the flash message to give it some funky fresh attention.

    <div class="flash">
      <%= octicon "alert" %>
      Flash message with an icon goes here.

    With dismiss

    Add a JavaScript enabled (via Crema) dismiss (close) icon on the right of any flash message.

    <div class="flash">
      <button class="flash-close js-flash-close" type="button"><%= octicon "x", :"aria-label" => "Close" %></button>
      Dismissable flash message goes here.

    With action button

    A flash message with an action button.

    <div class="flash">
      <button type="submit" class="btn btn-sm primary flash-action">Complete action</button>
      Flash message with action here.

    Full width flash

    A flash message that is full width and removes border and border radius.

    <div class="flash flash-full">
      <div class="container">
        Full width flash message.
