PrettyFlash

Rails plugin that provides “pretty” flash messages.

In the controller…

This plugin gives a couple of convenience methods for setting flash messages.

notice "Hooray! You did something good."
warning "Uhm, You're not allowed to do that yet."
error "Ooooops! Something went wrong."

Use those instead of the typical flash[:notice] = "Some String" (all it does is set that for you).

In the view…

Then all you have to do to display them is:

<%= display_flash_messages %>

Easy enough?

Get Started

There’s an assets folder with this plugin, that contains the images, CSS, and javascript (optional). There’s
a rake task that installs this stuff where it needs to be (inside the public/ directory).

$ rake pretty_flash:install

WARNING: this will overwrite any of the files that have the same name. So double check if you don’t want that to happen.

Also, the flash.js file located in the assets/javascripts folder is only used to fade the flash messages after so many
seconds (defaults to 25 seconds). If you want that, I’ve provide support for prototype and jquery, so just copy whichever
one you’re using into application.js and you’re all set. If you’re not using either, sorry :-)

Enjoy!
