Since Toaster 2.0.0, you can use UIAppearance to set default appearance. This is an short example to set default background color to red.

useSafeAreaForBottomOffset Bool A Boolean value that determines safeAreaInsets.bottom is added to bottomOffset

Attributed string

Since Toaster 2.3.0, you can also set an attributed string:
