jGrowl

jGrowl is a jQuery plugin that raises unobtrusive messages within the browser, similar to the way that OS X's Growl Framework works. The idea is simple, deliver notifications to the end user in a noticeable way that doesn't obstruct the work flow and yet keeps the user informed.

Installation

jGrowl can be added to your project using package managers like bower and npm or directly into your html using cdnjs, as well as the good old fashioned copy-paste into your project directory.

Use cdnjs:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery-jgrowl/1.4.1/jquery.jgrowl.min.css" />
<script src="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery-jgrowl/1.4.1/jquery.jgrowl.min.js"></script>

Install with bower

bower install jgrowl

Install with npm

npm install jgrowl
// Sample 1
$.jGrowl("Hello world!");
// Sample 2
$.jGrowl("Stick this!", { sticky: true });
// Sample 3
$.jGrowl("A message with a header", { header: 'Important' });
// Sample 4
$.jGrowl("A message that will live a little longer.", { life: 10000 });
// Sample 5
$.jGrowl("A message with a beforeOpen callback and a different opening animation.", {
	beforeClose: function(e,m) {
		alert('About to close this notification!');
	},
	animateOpen: {
		height: 'show'
	}
});
