One year ago this month Hans Fjällemark and I released Toastr and are happy to see that developers seem to appreciate its simplicity. It’s now be downloaded on NuGet over 27,000 times. In fact, the recent version was downloaded over 10,000 times the past 2 months! Today we have released version 1.3.0 to github and NuGet.

Toastr is a simple JavaScript toast notification library that is small, easy to use, and extendable. It allows you to create simple toasts with HTML5 and JavaScript like this:


Simply include the files in your HTML page and write a simple line of code like this:

var msg = 'Are you the six fingered man?';
var title = 'Inigo Montoya';
toastr.success(msg, title);

Click the this button to try it yourself.
