Wiki including Change Log

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

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!')
// Immediately remove current toasts without using animation 
// Remove current toasts using animation 
// Override global options 
toastr.success('We do have the Kapua suite available.', 'Turtle Bay Resort', {timeOut: 5000})

In case you want to escape HTML charaters in title and message

toastr.options.escapeHtml = true;

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

Optionally override the hide animation when the close button is clicked (falls back to hide configuration).

toastr.options.closeMethod = 'fadeOut';
toastr.options.closeDuration = 300;
toastr.options.closeEasing = 'swing';

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.

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';
toastr.options.closeEasing = 'linear';

Using the jQuery Easing plugin (

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

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';
toastr.options.closeMethod = 'slideUp';

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;

Control how toastr interacts with users by setting timeouts appropriately. Timeouts can be disabled by setting them to 0.

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 

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
