Breaking Changes

Animation Changes

The following animations options have been deprecated and should be replaced:
- Replace options.fadeIn with options.showDuration - Replace options.onFadeIn with options.onShown - Replace options.fadeOut with options.hideDuration - Replace options.onFadeOut with options.onHidden

Quick Start

3 Easy Steps

For other API calls, see the demo.
  1. Link to toastr.css <link href="toastr.css" rel="stylesheet"/>

  1. Link to toastr.js <script src="toastr.js"></script>

  1. use toastr to display a toast for info, success, warning or error
// Display an info toast with no title'Are you the 6 fingered man?')

Other Options

// Display a warning toast, with no title
toastr.warning('My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father, prepare to die!')

// Display a success toast, with a title
toastr.success('Have fun storming the castle!', 'Miracle Max Says')

// Display an error toast, with a title
toastr.error('I do not think that word means what you think it means.', 'Inconceivable!')

// Immediately remove current toasts without using animation

// Remove current toasts using animation

// Override global options
toastr.success('We do have the Kapua suite available.', 'Turtle Bay Resort', {timeOut: 5000})

Escape HTML characters

In case you want to escape HTML characters in title and message
toastr.options.escapeHtml = true;

Close Button

Optionally enable a close button
toastr.options.closeButton = true;

Optionally override the close button's HTML.

toastr.options.closeHtml = '<button><i class="icon-off"></i></button>';

You can also override the CSS/LESS for #toast-container .toast-close-button
Optionally override the hide animation when the close button is clicked (falls back to hide configuration).
toastr.options.closeMethod = 'fadeOut';
toastr.options.closeDuration = 300;
toastr.options.closeEasing = 'swing';

Display Sequence

Show newest toast at bottom (top is default)
toastr.options.newestOnTop = false;


// Define a callback for when the toast is shown/hidden/clicked
toastr.options.onShown = function() { console.log('hello'); }
toastr.options.onHidden = function() { console.log('goodbye'); }
toastr.options.onclick = function() { console.log('clicked'); }
toastr.options.onCloseClick = function() { console.log('close button clicked'); }

Animation Options

Toastr will supply default animations, so you do not have to provide any of these settings. However you have the option to override the animations if you like.


Optionally override the animation easing to show or hide the toasts. Default is swing. swing and linear are built into jQuery.
toastr.options.showEasing = 'swing';
toastr.options.hideEasing = 'linear';
toastr.options.closeEasing = 'linear';

Using the jQuery Easing plugin (
toastr.options.showEasing = 'easeOutBounce';
toastr.options.hideEasing = 'easeInBack';
toastr.options.closeEasing = 'easeInBack';

Animation Method

Use the jQuery show/hide method of your choice. These default to fadeIn/fadeOut. The methods fadeIn/fadeOut, slideDown/slideUp, and show/hide are built into jQuery.
toastr.options.showMethod = 'slideDown';
toastr.options.hideMethod = 'slideUp';
toastr.options.closeMethod = 'slideUp';

Prevent Duplicates

Rather than having identical toasts stack, set the preventDuplicates property to true. Duplicates are matched to the previous toast based on their message content.
toastr.options.preventDuplicates = true;


Control how toastr interacts with users by setting timeouts appropriately. Timeouts can be disabled by setting them to 0.
toastr.options.timeOut = 30; // How long the toast will display without user interaction
toastr.options.extendedTimeOut = 60; // How long the toast will display after a user hovers over it

Progress Bar

Visually indicate how long before a toast expires.
toastr.options.progressBar = true;


Flip the toastr to be displayed properly for right-to-left languages.
toastr.options.rtl = true;

Building Toastr

To build the minified and css versions of Toastr you will need node installed. (Use Homebrew or Chocolatey.)
npm install -g gulp karma-cli
npm install

At this point the dependencies have been installed and you can build Toastr
  • Run the analytics gulp analyze
  • Run the test gulp test
  • Run the build gulp
