Create Growl-like Notifications Using Bootstrap 5 Alerts - Notify

This is an upgraded version of Bootstrap Notify plugin, designed to turn Bootstrap 5 alerts into highly customizable growl-style notification bars.

While the default Bootstrap 5 alerts are useful for sending quick messages to users, you can take it a step further and turn them into something more user-friendly by using the Bootstrap 5 Notify plugin. This makes your notifications look like "Growl-like" messages with CSS3 animations, custom headers, progress bars, icons, callbacks, and vibration notifications.
