For full documentation, see iGrowl.


  • Elegant, clean look

    • includes numerous options, styles and animations
    • can change defaults
    • includes animation callbacks
  • CSS animations - smooth performance on all devices
  • Responsive - media queries for alert size

iGrowl has 3 dependencies:

  1. jQuery
  2. animate.css
  3. Optional: one or more of the 4 icon packs included - each includes its respective css and font files

All icon packs have been compiled using Icomoon app.


To install, grab the necessary iGrowl files from dist.

<!-- dependencies: jQuery + animate.css --> 
<link rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheets/animate.min.css">
<script src="javascript/jquery.min.js">

<!-- iGrowl CSS + JS --> 
<link rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheets/igrowl.min.css">
<script src="javascript/igrowl.min.js">

<!-- at least one of the following icon stylesheets: --> 
<link rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheets/font css/vicons.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheets/font css/feather.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheets/font css/steadysets.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheets/font css/linecons.css">

Also, include the respective font files (eg: igrowl-feather.eot, igrowl-feather.svg, igrowl-feather.ttc, etc.).

Note: you may need to change the icon css paths to the font files depending on how your project is organized.

To generate an iGrowl alert, simply call it by:

  message: "Hello world!",
  // other options
