A toastr message implemented with Redux


react-redux-toastr is a React toastr message implemented with Redux, primary consists of three things: a reducer, toastr emitter and a React component.

The reducer listens to dispatched actions from the component to maintain the toastr state in Redux.

Implementation Guide

1. Installation

npm install --save react-redux-toastr

2. Add the styles
  • import the scss file into to your project.

    @import 'react-redux-toastr/src/styles/index';
  • or import the css file.

import 'react-redux-toastr/lib/css/react-redux-toastr.min.css'
  • or include the css file from the demo site (NOTE: This can be change at anytime)
<link href="" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
3. Add the reducer.
import {createStore, combineReducers} from 'redux' import {reducer as toastrReducer} from 'react-redux-toastr' const reducers = { // ... other reducers ... toastr: toastrReducer // <- Mounted at toastr. } const reducer = combineReducers(reducers) const store = createStore(reducer)

NOTE: The default mount point for react-redux-toastr is toastr.

4. Add the component into an app root
import {Provider} from 'react-redux' import ReduxToastr from 'react-redux-toastr' <Provider store={store}> <div> ... other things like router ... // props are not required <ReduxToastr timeOut={4000} newestOnTop={false} preventDuplicates position="top-left" transitionIn="fadeIn" transitionOut="fadeOut" progressBar closeOnToastrClick/> </div> </Provider>

The default configuration is:

{ timeOut: 5000, newestOnTop: true, position: 'top-right', transitionIn: 'bounceIn', transitionOut: 'bounceOut', progressBar: false, closeOnToastrClick: false, }

NOTE: transitionIn and transitionOut will affect the confirm animation as well

Here is the full list of available configurations:

  • position: top-left top-center top-right bottom-left bottom-center and bottom-right

  • transitionIn: bounceIn bounceInDown and fadeIn

  • transitionOut: bounceOut bounceOutUp and fadeOut

5. Use the emitter

The toastr method use eventemitter3 to dispatch the actions

import React, {Component} from 'react' import {toastr} from 'react-redux-toastr' export class YourComponent extends Component { render() { return ( <div> <button onClick={() => toastr.success('The title', 'The message')} type="button">Toastr Success</button> </div> ) } }

Or you can bind the actions to your component if you prefer.

import {bindActionCreators} from 'redux' import {actions as toastrActions} from 'react-redux-toastr' // In your React component constructor(props) { super(props); // Bind the react-redux-toastr actions to the component this.toastr = bindActionCreators(toastrActions, this.props.dispatch) this.toastr.add({ id: 'mycustomid', // If not provided we will add one. type: 'success', title: 'your title', position: 'top-left', // This will override the global props position. attention: true, // This will add a shadow like the confirm method. onAttentionClick: (id) => {}, //override default behavior of 'attention' background click. message: 'message', options: {} }); this.toastr.remove('toastrId'); }

Toastr methods

Toastr accepts the following methods: success info warning light error confirm message, remove and removeByType

Toastr: success info warning light error remove and removeByType

Each of these methods can take up to three arguments the title a message and options.
In options you can specify timeOut icon onShowComplete onHideComplete className component removeOnHover,removeOnHoverTimeOut,showCloseButton, onCloseButtonClick, onToastrClick, progressBar, transitionIn, position, attention, onAttentionClick, transitionOut and closeOnToastrClick.

import {toastr} from 'react-redux-toastr' const toastrOptions = { timeOut: 3000, // by setting to 0 it will prevent the auto close icon: (<myCustomIconOrAvatar />), // You can add any component you want but note that the width and height are 70px ;) onShowComplete: () => console.log('SHOW: animation is done'), onHideComplete: () => console.log('HIDE: animation is done'), onCloseButtonClick: () => console.log('Close button was clicked'), onToastrClick: () => console.log('Toastr was clicked'), showCloseButton: false, // true by default closeOnToastrClick: true, // false by default, this will close the toastr when user clicks on it component: ( // this option will give you a func 'remove' as props <MyCustomComponent myProp="myValue"> <span>Hello, World!</span> </MyCustomComponent> ) } toastr.success('Title', 'Message', toastrOptions)'The message', toastrOptions) toastr.warning('The title', 'The message') toastr.error('The message') toastr.removeByType('error') // Remove all toastrs with the type error. toastr.remove('123') // Removes toastr with id '123'
Toastr methods light

The light method is like the other toastr except that the background-color is white and you can add a top
border on top of the toastr by passing the status option

icon can be one of the following:

  • 'success'
  • 'info'
  • 'warning'
  • 'error'
import {toastr} from 'react-redux-toastr' const toastrType = 'warning'; const toastrOptions = { icon: toastrType, status: toastrType } toastr.light('The title', 'The message', toastrOptions)
Toastr: message

This one is in case you wanna show a large amount of information, unlike the other methods above this will not close automatically unless you provide a timeout in the message options.

const toastrMessageOptions = { timeOut: 3000, // Default value is 0 onShowComplete: () => console.log('SHOW: animation is done'), onHideComplete: () => console.log('HIDE: animation is done'), removeOnHover: false, // Default value is false removeOnHoverTimeOut: 1000, // Default value is 1000 component: React.Component }; toastr.message('Title', toastrMessageOptions)
Toastr: confirm

The confirm method takes two arguments, the first is the message the second is a object where you can specify what will happen when the user clicks on ok and cancel button or by keypress enter/esc

NOTE: You can only have one at a time, right now if you have one confirm and you fire another it will be ignored.

const toastrConfirmOptions = { onOk: () => console.log('OK: clicked'), onCancel: () => console.log('CANCEL: clicked') }; toastr.confirm('Are you sure about that!', toastrConfirmOptions);

You can change the ok and cancel text by:

  • Passing the confirm props to the ReduxToastr component
<!-- please define both keys as this will override default okText & cancelText --> const options = { okText: 'confirm text', cancelText: 'cancel text' }; <ReduxToastr confirmOptions={options}/>
  • Passing the okText and cancelText props to the toasterConfirmOptions object:
const toastrConfirmOptions = { ... okText: 'confirm text', cancelText: 'cancel text' }; toastr.confirm('Are you sure about that!', toastrConfirmOptions);

You can make it so ok is the only button by:

  • Passing the disableCancel prop to the toasterConfirmOptions object:
const toastrConfirmOptions = { ... disableCancel: true; }; toastr.confirm('You have timed out! Please log back in.', toastrConfirmOptions);

You can add custom buttons by:

  • Passing the buttons prop to the toasterConfirmOptions object.
    The buttons are inserted after the OK and the cancel button.

    Each button config can have a text, handler and a className property.

    If you want to move the original OK or cancel button to a different place, just
    insert a button config with a boolean flag ok or cancel at the desired position
    (note that all other properties are ignored in this button config).

The following config leads to 3 buttons in this order:

  1. "Apply" (original OK button)
  2. "Do not apply" (our custom button)
  3. "Cancel" (original cancel button)
const toastrConfirmOptions = { ... okText: 'Apply', buttons: [{ text: 'Do not apply', className: 'do-not-apply-btn', handler: () => console.log('do-not-apply clicked') }, { cancel: true // move the cancel button to the end }] }; toastr.confirm('Your changes are applicable to 5 more records.', toastrConfirmOptions);

You can render your custom message component instead of the simple string message by:

  • Passing the component prop to the toasterConfirmOptions object:
const toastrConfirmOptions = { ... component: () => ( <MyCustomComponent myProp="myValue"> <span>Hello, World!</span> </MyCustomComponent> ) }; toastr.confirm(null, toastrConfirmOptions); // pass null for message

Avatar: in case you wanna use the same avatar as the example
