Easy Bootstrap-compatible Notification Bar Plugin - Flash Messenger

Flash Messenger is a lightweight and easy-to-use jQuery plugin used to display your info/error/danger/success/warning/alert messages in the top notification bars.


  • 7 notification types: 'error', 'danger', 'info', 'notice', 'success', 'warning', 'alert'.
  • Auto dismiss after a specific timeout.
  • You can also close the notification bar by clicking on the close button.
  • Can be set to 'Sticky' that will always stay within the document.
  • Bootstrap compatible.


$ npm install flash-messenger --save

Basic usage:

1. Include the stylesheet flash-messenger.css in the header that will provide the core CSS styles for the notification messages.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="flash-messenger.css">

2. Include jQuery library and the JavaScript file flash-messenger.js at the bottom of your webpage.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-2.2.3.min.js"></script>
<script src="flash-messenger.js"></script>

3. Create notification bars on the webpage.

flash('Notification Message Here', {type: 'error'});
// or 
flash.error('Notification Message Here');
