Wiki including Change Log

####Animation Changes The following animations options have been deprecated and should be replaced:

  • Replace options.fadeIn with options.showDuration
  • Replace options.onFadeIn with options.onShown
  • Replace options.fadeOut with options.hideDuration
  • Replace options.onFadeOut with options.onHidden

###3 Easy Steps For other API calls, see the demo.

  1. Link to toastr.css <link href="toastr.css" rel="stylesheet"/>

  2. Link to toastr.js <script src="toastr.js"></script>

  3. use toastr to display a toast for info, success, warning or error

     // Display an info toast with no title'Are you the 6 fingered man?')
// Display a warning toast, with no title
toastr.warning('My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father, prepare to die!')

// Display a success toast, with a title
toastr.success('Have fun storming the castle!', 'Miracle Max Says')

// Display an error toast, with a title
toastr.error('I do not think that word means what you think it means.', 'Inconceivable!')
// Clears the current list of toasts

Optionally enable a close button

toastr.options.closeButton = true;

Optionally override the close button's HTML.

toastr.options.closeHtml = '<button><i class="icon-off"></i></button>';

You can also override the CSS/LESS for #toast-container .toast-close-button

Show newest toast at bottom (top is default)

toastr.options.newestOnTop = false;
// Define a callback for when the toast is shown/hidden
toastr.options.onShown = function() { console.log('hello'); }
toastr.options.onHidden = function() { console.log('goodbye'); }

Toastr will supply default animations, so you do not have to provide any of these settings. However you have the option to override the animations if you like.

####Easings Optionally override the animation easing to show or hide the toasts. Default is swing. swing and linear are built into jQuery.

toastr.options.showEasing = 'swing';
toastr.options.hideEasing = 'linear';

Using the jQuery Easing plugin (

toastr.options.showEasing = 'easeOutBounce';
toastr.options.hideEasing = 'easeInBack';

####Animation Method Use the jQuery show/hide method of your choice. These default to fadeIn/fadeOut. The methods fadeIn/fadeOut, slideDown/slideUp, and show/hide are built into jQuery.

toastr.options.showMethod = 'slideDown'; 
toastr.options.hideMethod = 'slideUp'; 

###Prevent Duplicates Rather than having identical toasts stack, set the preventDuplicates property to true. Duplicates are matched to the previous toast based on their message content.

toastr.options.preventDuplicates = true;

###Timeouts Control how toastr interacts with users by setting timeouts appropriately.

toastr.options.timeout = 30; // How long the toast will display without user interaction
toastr.options.extendedTimeOut = 60; // How long the toast will display after a user hovers over it

###Progress Bar Visually indicate how long before a toast expires.

toastr.options.progressBar = true; 

To build the minified and css versions of Toastr you will need node installed. (Use Homebrew or Chocolatey.)

npm install -g gulp karma-cli
npm install

At this point the dependencies have been installed and you can build Toastr

  • Run the analytics gulp analyze
  • Run the test gulp test
  • Run the build gulp
