    npm version npm Minified & Gzipped size


    A delightful, easy to use and highly configurable component to help you notify your users out of the box. No messy setup, just beautiful notifications!

    As of version 3.3.0 react-notifications-component no longer uses default export. Rely on this import instead

    import { ReactNotifications, Store } from 'react-notifications-component'


    alt text


    • Touch support
    • Responsive notifications
    • Standard notification types
    • Custom notification types
    • Custom notification content
    • Dismissable (touch, click, timeout)
    • Customizable transitions
    • Small library

    Getting started

    npm install react-notifications-component


    First build the library

    npm run build:library:dev

    then run the webpack server to see the app running

    npm run start


    Import react-notifications-component

    import { ReactNotifications } from 'react-notifications-component'

    Import the CSS theme

    import 'react-notifications-component/dist/theme.css'

    SASS files are located in react-notifications-component/dist/scss

    Render react-notifications-component at the top of your application so that it does not conflict with other absolutely positioned DOM elements.

    const App = () => {
      return (
        <div className="app-container">
          <ReactNotifications />
          <Application />

    Import Store where needed - will be used to access addNotification and removeNotification API methods

    import { Store } from 'react-notifications-component';

    Then call addNotification and watch the magic happens

      title: "Wonderful!",
      message: "teodosii@react-notifications-component",
      type: "success",
      insert: "top",
      container: "top-right",
      animationIn: ["animate__animated", "animate__fadeIn"],
      animationOut: ["animate__animated", "animate__fadeOut"],
      dismiss: {
        duration: 5000,
        onScreen: true


    Note: We rely on animate.css in this example as animate__fadeIn and animate__fadeOut are part of animate.css. We recommend using it as it's an excellent animation library, but you're not forced to. If you prefer you may also use your custom animations as long as they're valid CSS animations.

    Note: animate.css latest version (v4) has breaking changes. It introduces animate__ prefix so that existing classes don't clash. If you still would like to use classes without prefix you can import animate.css/animate.compat.css

    // preferred way to import (from `v4`). Uses `animate__` prefix.
    import 'animate.css/animate.min.css';
    // Alternate way to use classes without prefix like `animated fadeIn`
    import 'animate.css/animate.compat.css'

    In the examples, we will be using classes with animate__ prefix, which is the default behaviour of latest v4 version of animate.css.

    For more info on how to use animate.css, please refer to animate.css docs



    Render a new notification. Method returns a unique id for the rendered notification. Supplied options are internally validated and an exception will be thrown if validation fails.


    Manually remove a notification by id.


    In the following examples for brevity some options will not be mentioned. Strictly focusing on the needed options to present each example. For reference, we will be using Object spread operator on a notification object to have non relevant fields included as well.

    notification = {
      title: "Wonderful!",
      message: "Configurable",
      type: "success",
      insert: "top",
      container: "top-right",
      animationIn: ["animate__animated animate__fadeIn"], // `animate.css v4` classes
      animationOut: ["animate__animated animate__fadeOut"] // `animate.css v4` classes

    Notification container

    You have in total 6 containers for desktop and 2 for mobile, if component is set to be responsive. List of containers:

    • top-left
    • top-right
    • top-center
    • center
    • bottom-left
    • bottom-right
    • bottom-center
      container: 'top-right'

    Will position the notification in top right of the screen.

    Notification type

    List of types:

    • success
    • danger
    • info
    • default
    • warning
      type: 'danger'

    Will trigger a danger notification.


      animationIn: ['animate__animated animate__fadeIn'], // `animate.css v4` classes
      animationOut: ['animate__animated animate__fadeOut'] // `animate.css v4` classes

    animationIn and animationOut rely on CSS classes that toggle animations. On github pages we rely on animate.css, we suggest you to import that package and use their animations as they have plenty.

    Note: Failing to have animations set properly will lead to bugs in some causes, as react-notifications-component relies on onAnimationEnd event to know when an animation has finished.

    Dismiss notification automatically after timeout expires

      dismiss: {
        duration: 2000

    Dismiss notification automatically with the time left shown on UI

      dismiss: {
        duration: 2000,
        onScreen: true

    Subscribe to notification's removal

    Easily subscribe to onRemoval by supplying callback as option to the notification object. Callback will get called after the removal animation finishes.

      onRemoval: (id, removedBy) => {

    Pause notification's timeout by hovering

      dismiss: {
        duration: 2000,
        pauseOnHover: true

    Change transition

      slidingExit: {
        duration: 800,
        timingFunction: 'ease-out',
        delay: 0

    slidingEnter, touchRevert and touchSlidingExit can all be configured in the same way, with the mention that touchSlidingExit has 2 transitions nested.

      touchSlidingExit: {
        swipe: {
          duration: 400,
          timingFunction: 'ease-out',
          delay: 0,
        fade: {
          duration: 400,
          timingFunction: 'ease-out',
          delay: 0

    onScreen Boolean Show time left directly on the notification. Defaults to false
    pauseOnHover Boolean Hovering over notification will pause the dismiss timer. Defaults to false
    waitForAnimation Boolean When removing a notification by default we trigger the exit animation and the transition to height 0 at the same time. Setting this to true will wait for the exit animation to finish and then start the transition to height 0. Defaults to false

    touch Boolean Enable dismiss by touch move, defaults to true
    showIcon Boolean Show or hide the close icon, defaults to false. If set to true, it will respond to click interaction and will remove notification

    Migration from v1

    • Ref usage has been deprecated. Import Store from library and use it for adding and removing notifications
    • touchSlidingBack has been renamed to touchRevert
    • Default values for transitions have been slightly changed
    • dismissIcon has been removed. Use showIcon instead. If you relly on customized close icon, then stick to custom content.
    • dismiss supports now more options
    • cubicBezier has been renamed to timingFunction
    • Validators are now no longer included in the prod build, they are only included in the dev build. If you inspect the npm package you will see that the component has 2 builds - dev and prod - and relies on ENV variable when importing.
