Introduction

Laravel Notify is a package that lets you add custom notifications to your project.
A diverse range of notification design is available and many are coming soon.

Work In Progress

This package is still under active development. If you need Android version please try this package Aesthetic Dialogs. Happy Coding 👨🏾‍💻

Installation

You can install the package using composer

$ composer require mckenziearts/laravel-notify

Then add the service provider to config/app.php. In Laravel versions 5.5 and beyond, this step can be skipped if package auto-discovery is enabled.

'providers' => [
    ...
    Mckenziearts\Notify\LaravelNotifyServiceProvider::class
    ...
];

You can publish the configuration file and assets by running:

$ php artisan vendor:publish --provider='Mckenziearts\Notify\LaravelNotifyServiceProvider'

Now that we have published a few new files to our application we need to reload them with the following command:

$ composer dump-autoload

Usage

  1. Add styles links with @notifyCss
  2. Add scripts links with @notifyJs
  3. use notify() helper function inside your controller to set a toast notification for info, success, warning or error
  4. Include notify partial to your master layout @include('notify::messages')

Basic

Within your controllers, before you perform a redirect call the notify method with a message.

public function store()
{
    notify()->success('Laravel Notify is awesome!');

    return Redirect::home();
}

An complete example:

<!doctype html>
<html>
    <head>
        <title>Laravel Notify</title>
        @notifyCss
    </head>
    <body>
        
        
        @include('notify::messages')
        @notifyJs
    </body>
</html>

Type of notifications

Laravel Notify actually display 5 types of notifications

  1. toast notification, who is default notification for Laravel Notify
notify()->success('Welcome to Laravel Notify ⚡️') or notify()->success('Welcome to Laravel Notify ⚡️', 'My custom title')
  1. connectify notification, example of basic usage
connectify('success', 'Connection Found', 'Success Message Here')
  1. drakify (😎) notification, only to display an alert
drakify('success') // for success alert 
or
drakify('error') // for error alert 
  1. smilify notification, a simple custom toast notification using smiley 😊
smilify('success', 'You are successfully reconnected')
  1. emotify notification, a simple custom toast notification using vector emoticon
emotify('success', 'You are awesome, your data was successfully created')

Preset Notifications

If you have a specific notification that is used across multiple different places in your system, you can define it
as a preset notification in your config file. This makes it easier to maintain commonly used notifications in one place.
Read how to define preset messages in the Config section below.

As an example, to use a preset notification you have defined called 'common-notification', use the following:

notify()->preset('common-notification')

You can override any of the values that are set in the config if you need to. For example, this could be useful if you
have a common notification across, but you want to change the icon in one particular place that it's used without having
to manually write out a new notification.

To do this, simply pass in an array that has the key of the attribute that you want to override and the value you want
to override it with.

As an example, we could override the 'title' of our 'common-notification' by using the following:

notify()->preset('common-notification', ['title' => 'This is the overridden title'])

Config

Config file are located at config/notify.php after publishing provider element.

Some awesome stuff. To active dark mode update the theme config, or add global variable NOTIFY_THEME on your .env file

'theme' => env('NOTIFY_THEME', 'dark'),

Got result like that

Laravel Notify use animate.css to set smooth animation to display and hide notify element.

/*
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Animate Module (use animate.css)
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
|
| Use animate.css to animate the notice.
|
*/

'animate' => [
    'in_class' => 'bounceInRight', // The class to use to animate the notice in.
    'out_class' => 'bounceOutRight', // The class to use to animate the notice out.
    'timeout'   => 5000 // Number of seconds before the notice disappears
],

You can now choose where the notification should appear with the position variable in the configuration file. By default
the top-right position is enable.

'position' => 'top-right',

You can define preset notifications in the config file using the following structure:

'preset-messages' => [
    'user-updated' => [
        'message' => 'The user has been updated successfully.',
        'type'    => 'success',
        'icon'    => 'flaticon2-check-mark',
        'model'   => 'connect',
        'title'   => 'User Updated',
    ],
    'user-deleted' => [
        'message' => 'The user has been deleted successfully.',
        'type'    => 'success',
        'icon'    => 'flaticon2-check-mark',
        'model'   => 'connect',
        'title'   => 'User Deleted',
    ],
],

The example above shows the config for two preset notifications: 'user-updated' and 'user-deleted'.
