How To Use It:

Basic Example

- (void)viewDidLoad
{
    [super viewDidLoad];

    /**
     * Create the notification
     */
    self.minimalNotification = [JFMinimalNotification notificationWithStyle:JFMinimalNotificationStyleDefault title:@"This is my awesome title" subTitle:@"This is my awesome sub-title"];

    /**
     * Set the desired font for the title and sub-title labels
     * Default is System Normal
     */
    UIFont* titleFont = [UIFont fontWithName:@"STHeitiK-Light" size:22];
    [self.minimalNotification setTitleFont:titleFont];
    UIFont* subTitleFont = [UIFont fontWithName:@"STHeitiK-Light" size:16];
    [self.minimalNotification setSubTitleFont:subTitleFont];

    /**
     * Set any necessary edge padding as needed
     */
    self.minimalNotification.edgePadding = UIEdgeInsetsMake(0, 0, 10, 0);

    /**
     * Add the notification to a view
     */
    [self.view addSubview:self.minimalNotification];
}

/**
 * Showing the notification from a button handler
 */
- (IBAction)show:(id)sender {
    [self.minimalNotification show];
}

/**
 * Hiding the notification from a button handler
 */
- (IBAction)dismiss:(id)sender {
    [self.minimalNotification dismiss];
}

Constructors / Options

/**
 * Note: passing a dismissalDelay of 0 means the notification will NOT be automatically dismissed, you will need to 
 * dismiss the notification yourself by calling -dismiss on the notification object. If you pass a dismissalDelay 
 * value greater than 0, this will be the length of time the notification will remain visisble before being 
 * automatically dismissed.
 */

// With dismissalDelay
self.minimalNotification = [JFMinimalNotification notificationWithStyle:JFMinimalNotificationStyleError title:@"This is my awesome title" subTitle:@"This is my awesome sub-title" dismissalDelay:3.0];

// Without dismissalDelay and with touchHandler
self.minimalNotification = [JFMinimalNotification notificationWithStyle:JFMinimalNotificationStyleError title:@"This is my awesome title" subTitle:@"This is my awesome sub-title" dismissalDelay:0.0 touchHandler:^{
    [self.minimalNotification dismiss];
}];
// Available Styles
typedef NS_ENUM(NSInteger, JFMinimalNotificationStyle) {
    JFMinimalNotificationStyleDefault,
    JFMinimalNotificationStyleError,
    JFMinimalNotificationStyleSuccess,
    JFMinimalNotificationStyleInfo,
    JFMinimalNotificationStyleWarning,

    /**
     * @return Used to get a title and subtitle, no accessory views, and white bg with black label text. Use the .bakgroundColor property on the notification to set the desired background color and .textColor property on the titleLabel and subTitleLabel UILabel's to change text color.
     */
    JFMinimalNotificationStyleCustom,

    /**
     * @return A dark blur with vibrancy effect in the bakground with white label text.
     */
    JFMinimalNotificationStyleBlurDark,

    /**
     * @return A light blur with vibrancy effect in the bakground with black label text.
     */
    JFMinimalNotificationStyleBlurLight
};

Please see the example project include in this repo for an example of how to use this notification.
