angular-extended-notifications

Highly customizable notifications with AngularJS

Important notice

This repository is now DEPRECATED.

It has been moved here: https://bitbucket.org/lsystems/angular-extended-notifications

Why?

I needed to register this library on Bower.

Bower only supports git (and nearly only Github as well) so I had no choice to convert the repos to git…

Yes, that is extremely sad, and I hate Bower for that reason (among other things as well)…

Setup

Retrieve with NPM:

npm install angular-extended-notifications

Then include the js and html files in your project:

<script src="node_modules/angular-extended-notifications/dist/angular-extended-notifications.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

Include the module in your app (example from one of my projects)

angular.module("my-project", [
  // -- all my project dependencies… --
  "angular-extended-notifications"
])

.config(function (notificationsProvider) {
  // change default options (that can be overridden in a specific call later if necessary)
  notificationsProvider.setDefaults({
    // set the directory containing the html templates
    templatesDir: 'node_modules/angular-extended-notifications/templates/',
    // use font-awesome icons
    faIcons: true,
    // close notifications on route change
    closeOnRouteChange: 'route' // or 'state' using uiRouter…
  });
});

And use the service as you wish

angular.module("my-project").controller("my-controller", function(notifications) {
  "use strict";

  // use notifications
});

Documentation

Simple call

With title and message arguments:

notifications.info("Hello title", "Message to the world!");

notifications.warning("Hello title", "Message to the world!");

notifications.error("Hello title", "Message to the world!");

notifications.success("Hello title", "Message to the world!");

notifications.info("Hello title", "Message to the world!");

With a configuration object:

notifications.info({
  title: "Hello title",
  message: "Message to the world!"
});

notifications.notify({
  type: "info"
  title: "Hello title",
  message: "Message to the world!"
});

Style it a little…

Change CSS classes

Configure your CSS to style special notifications:

notifications.info("Hello title", "Message to the world!", {
  className: "custom-class"
});

Display font-awesome icons

The library can use font-awesome icons:

notifications.info("Hello title", "Message to the world!", {
  faIcon: false // no icon
});

notifications.info("Hello title", "Message to the world!", {
  faIcon: "fa-heart" // with a different icon
});

To always enable font-awesome icons:

notifications.setDefaults({faIcons: true});

Configure it a little further…

Close button

Override the close button:

notifications.info("Hello title", "Message to the world!", {
  closeButton: false
});

Notification positionning

Attach the notification anywhere you want (they are prepended on body by default):

notifications.info("Hello title", "Message to the world!", {
  attachTo: $("#my-div") // prepend
});

notifications.info("Hello title", "Message to the world!", {
  // describe how you want to attach the template by yourself
  attachTo: function(template) {
    $myDiv.append(template);
  }
});

Duration and close conditions

Change the notification duration on creation:

var notif = notifications.info("Hello title", "Message to the world!", {
  duration: 10000 // 10s
});

Or on the fly:

notif.changeDuration(5000); // 5s
notif.changeDuration(-1); // unlimited

Hide the notification on route or state change:

notifications.info("Hello title", "Message to the world!", {
  closeOnRouteChange: "route" // use angular's router (would have been "state" for uiRouter)
});

Configure default options in config phase:

angular.config(function (notificationsProvider) {
  notificationsProvider
    // change default options (that can be overridden in a specific call later if necessary)
    .setDefaults({
      // -- any valid options like: --
      faIcon: true
    })
    .setFaIcons({
      // set one or many custom icons: info, success, error, warning
      success: 'fa-heart'
    });

});

Try some more powerful stuff…

Callbacks

Trigger callbacks when the notification appears or closes:

var timestamp;
notifications.info("Hello title", "Message to the world!", {
  show: function () {
    console.log("The notification appears");
    timestamp = +new Date();
  },
  close: function () {
    var time = (+new Date() - timestamp) / 1000;
    console.log("The notification was shown " + time + 's')

    return false; // by returning false, I can cancel the closing of the notification to let it open (if I changed my mind…)
  }
});

Custom actions

Add custom actions in the notification (for example a "Dismiss" button):

var notif = notifications.info("Hello title", "Message to the world!", {
  actions: [{
    label: "Dismiss",
    fn: function () {
      console.log('This function executes when you click on "Dismiss"');
      notif.close();
    },
  }]
});

Or like GMail's cancellation:

var notif;

var onError = function(err) {
  notif.close();
  notif = notification.error({
    title: "Error (" + err.code + ")"
    message: err.message,
    duration: -1
  });
}

notif = notifications.info({
  message: 'Sending…',
  duration: -1,
  actions: [{
    label: 'Cancel',
    fn: function () {
      notif.close();
      notif = notifications.warning({
        message: 'Cancelling…',
        duration: -1,
      });
      DoTheCancelling()
        .then(function () {
          notif.close();
          notif = notifications.success({
            message: 'Cancelled !'
          });
        })
        .catch(onError);
    },
  }],
});

DoTheSending(myData)
  .then(function () {
    notif = notifications.success({
      message: 'Sent !'
    });
  });
  .catch(onError);

Use a custom template

notifications.info("Hello title", "Message to the world!", {
  template: "my-custom-template" // by name (without extension)
});

notifications.info("Hello title", "Message to the world!", {
  templateFile: "my-custom-template.html" // by filename (with extension)
});

Override the template directory:

notifications.info("Hello title", "Message to the world!", {
  templatesDir: "/templates/"
});

The data object passed as parameter is available in the templates' scope:

notifications.info("Hello title", "Message to the world!", {
  username: myUser
});

See the bundled templates as examples.

Use webkitNotifications (html5 notifications)

Webkit notifications are available as described in the draft spec.

To enhance the browser compatibilities, you can include the bundled shim for Firefox 22+ if necessary.

notifications.info("Hello title", "Message to the world!", {
  webkitNotifications: {
    iconFile: "favicon.ico"
  }
});

You can use HTMLNotifications if you want a custom template:

notifications.info("Hello title", "Message to the world!", {
  webkitNotifications: {
    notificationUrl: "url/to/the/notification/content"
  }
});

To enable the webkitNotifications by default:

notifications.useWebkitNotifications({
  // data.webkitNotifications object
  iconFile: "favicon.ico"
});

and to disable:

notifications.useWebkitNotifications(false);
