travis Codecov npm dependencies Status

A simple growl like notification system.


Table of Contents


You can get it on npm

$ npm install --save growl-alert

Then import it with a module bundler like rollup or webpack

// using ES6 modules
import growl from 'growl-alert'
// you need to import the css too!
// but first you need to configure your bundler to process css files!
import 'growl-alert/dist/growl-alert.css'

// using CommonJS modules
var growl = require('growl-alert')

There is also an UMD build available on unpkg:

    <link rel="stylesheet" href=""></link>
    <script src=""></script>

You can find the library on window.growl or just growl.


You can use the growl() function, or one of its shortcuts.


growl({text: 'Hello World!', type: 'success'});

growl.success('User Saved!');
growl.error('Somethng gone wrong...');
