Twitter Bootstrap Modal Dialogs

Bootstrap Dialogs

Build Status


Asynchronous modal dialogs for the synchronous window.alert, window.confirm and window.prompt, styled and managed by Twitter Bootstrap. Pretty similar to Bootbox, yet using jQuery's Deferred objects.


alert, confirm and prompt all support custom title and body. Additionally, they support setting the button text and severity (default and danger at the moment).

// Alert dialog with custom title and body
Bootstrap.Dialogs.alert({ title: 'Alert title', body: 'Alert body' })
  .done(function () {

// Confirm dialog with default text
  .done(function () {
  .fail(function () {

// Prompt dialog with custom title and body
Bootstrap.Dialogs.prompt({ title: 'What is your name?', body: 'Please enter your name' })
  .done(function (name) {
  .fail(function () {

// Confirm dialog with custom button text
Bootstrap.Dialogs.confirm({ ok: 'Confirm', cancel: 'Abort' });

// Critical alert dialog
Bootstrap.Dialogs.alert({ danger: true });


TL;DR: npm install && npm test

Install Node and Npm using your packet manager of choice.

Install development dependencies:

npm install

Build and run the tests:

npm test

Start a development cycle listening for changes to files running a simple static server, CoffeeScript linting + compilation, and the test suite:

npm start


To see the examples in action, issue npm install && npm start and access http://localhost:8000/examples/.

Upgrade the distribution files
