Simple toast messages for Laravel 5.

Installation

1. Run composer require grimthorr/laravel-toast to include this in your project.

2. Optional, Laravel 5.4 and below: Add 'Grimthorr\LaravelToast\ServiceProvider' to providers in config/app.php, and add 'Toast' => 'Grimthorr\LaravelToast\Facade' to aliases in config/app.php.

// config/app.php
'providers' => array(
  // ...
  'Grimthorr\LaravelToast\ServiceProvider',
),
// ...
'aliases' => array(
  // ...
  'Toast' => 'Grimthorr\LaravelToast\Facade',
),

3. Include @include('toast::messages') or @include('toast::messages-jquery') somewhere in your template.

4. Optional: Run php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Grimthorr\LaravelToast\ServiceProvider" --tag="config" to publish the config file.

5. Optional: Modify the published configuration file located at config/laravel-toast.php to your liking.

6. Optional: Run php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Grimthorr\LaravelToast\ServiceProvider" --tag="views" to publish the views.

7. Optional: Modify the published views located at resources/views/vendor/toast to your liking.

Configuration

Pop open config/laravel-toast.php to adjust package configuration. If this file doesn't exist, run php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Grimthorr\LaravelToast\ServiceProvider" --tag="config" to create the default configuration file.

return array(
  'levels' => array(
    'info' => 'info',
    'success' => 'success',
    'error' => 'error',
    'warning' => 'warning',
    'default' => 'info'
  ),
);

Levels

Specify the class sent to the view for each level. For example calling the info method would send the info class to the view. If you use Bootstrap, you could set this to alert alert-info for ease of use in the view.

You can create a custom method here by passing a new level name and class. For example: 'help' => 'help' will allow you to call Toast::help($message). Alternatively, you can use the Toast::message($message, $level) method instead.

Views

This package includes a couple of views to get you started, they can be published to your resources directory using php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Grimthorr\LaravelToast\ServiceProvider" --tag="views" or called straight from the package by including them in a Blade template: @include('toast::messages').

@if(Session::has('toasts'))
  @foreach(Session::get('toasts') as $toast)
    <div class="alert alert-{{ $toast['level'] }}">
      <button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="alert" aria-hidden="true">&times;</button>

      {{ $toast['message'] }}
    </div>
  @endforeach
@endif

Usage

Use the Toast facade (Toast::) or the helper function (toast()->) to access the methods in this package. You can also chain multiple messages together using method chaining: toast()->success('done')->info('hello'). The title argument is optional.

Message

Toast::message('message', 'level', 'title');
toast()->message('message', 'level', 'title');
toast('message', 'title');

Add a toast to the session. Using toast('message') will use the default level.

Info

Toast::info('message', 'title');
toast()->info('message', 'title');

Add a toast with the info level.

Success

Toast::success('message', 'title');
toast()->success('message', 'title');

Add a toast with the success level.

Error

Toast::error('message', 'title');
toast()->error('message', 'title');

Add a toast with the error level.

Warning

Toast::warning('message', 'title');
toast()->warning('message', 'title');

Add a toast with the warning level.

Clear

Toast::clear();
toast()->clear();

Remove all pending toast messages from the session.

Example

These examples are using the default configuration.

Using the facade to send an error message

The following adds an error toast to the session and then redirects to home.

// Create the message
Toast::error('oops');

// Return a HTTP response to initiate the new session
return Redirect::to('home');

Using method chaining to create multiple toasts

The following adds an error and info toast to the session and then redirects to home.

// Create the message
Toast::error('oops')
  ->info('hello');

// Return a HTTP response to initiate the new session
return Redirect::to('home');

Using the helper function to send a message with a title

The following adds a toast to the session and then redirects to home.

// Create the message
toast('example', 'title goes here');

// Return a HTTP response to initiate the new session
return Redirect::to('home');

Using the helper function to send a message with a custom level

The following adds a help toast to the session and then redirects to home.

// Create the message
toast()->message('example', 'help');

// Return a HTTP response to initiate the new session
return Redirect::to('home');
