Express Messages

The express-messages-bootstrap module provides flash notification rendering that is compatible with Bootstrap & fBootstrap CSSs frameworks. This module is based on TJ Holowaychuk's express-messages. To use, simply assign it to a dynamic helper:

app.dynamicHelpers({ messages: require('express-messages-bootstrap') });

This Fork Code

The main github branch is considered stable. GA's should be Tagged. Major changes are milestoned. If you want bleeding edge changes look for the highest versioned beta branch.

At this point, this fork is seperately maintained.

Installation

Express-messages-bootstrap can also be installed from the NPM repository.

$ npm install express-messages-bootstrap

On cygwin you may need to force and display logging. Verbosity for some reason prevents hanging.

$ npm --force --loglevel verbose express-messages-bootstrap.

Usage

Then in a view you may output the notifications based on your templating engine:

EJS

<%- messages() %>

Jade

!= messages()

Which outputs HTML as shown below:

<div id="messages">
    <div class="alert-message error" data-alert="alert">
        <a class="close" href="#">×</a>
        <p>This is an error.</p>
    </div>
    <div class="alert-message info" data-alert="alert">
        <a class="close" href="#">×</a>
        <p>This is an info.</p>
    </div>
    <div class="alert-message warning" data-alert="alert">
        <a class="close" href="#">×</a>
        <p>This is a warning.</p>
    </div>
    <div class="alert-message success" data-alert="alert">
        <a class="close" href="#">×</a>
        <p>This is success.</p>
    </div>
</div>
