$ yarn add vuejs-notification

Then in your main.js:

import Notify from 'vue2-notify'

Inside your component:

this.$notify('A message that should be displayed', 'type')


Vue.$notify('A message that should be displayed', 'type')

You may use short type call:

visibility Integer 2000 The amount of milliseconds that the notification should be visible (if notification is not permanent)

permanent Boolean false Disable notification auto close
mode String 'text' Set 'html' to output real html. Only use HTML interpolation on trusted content and never on user-provided content.
closeButtonClass Boolean / String false Class name for close button. If false - close button will not be displayed. ( Example: set 'delete' for bulma or 'close' for bootstrap.)

Configuration options can be provided as options in the Vue.use statement:

// Use Notify
Vue.use(Notify, {visibility: 5000, permanent: true})

Overriding configuration

You can override the itemClass, iconClass, visibility, mode or closeButtonClass options on a per usage basis:

this.$notify('A message that should be displayed', 'type', { itemClass: 'alert col-6 alert-info', iconClass: 'fa fa-lg fa-handshake-o', visibility: 10000 })

Type should be one of the types defined in the configuration of the component.


Defines the type of notifications that can be triggered

Type ItemClass IconClass
info 'alert-info' 'fa fa-lg fa-info-circle'
error 'alert-danger' 'fa fa-lg fa-exclamation-triangle'
warning 'alert-warning' 'fa fa-lg fa-exclamation-circle'
success 'alert-success' 'fa fa-lg fa-check-circle'

You can override the default list of types in the following way, for example to use glyphicons instead of font awesome icons:

const types = {
  info: { itemClass: 'alert-info', iconClass: 'glyphicons glyphicons-info-sign'},
  success: { itemClass: 'alert-success', iconClass: 'glyphicons glyphicons-ok'},



Using vue2-notify with Bulma

In app.js:

import Notify from 'vue2-notify'
Vue.use(Notify, {
  itemClass: 'notification'
const types = {
  info: { itemClass: 'is-info', },
  error: { itemClass: 'is-danger' },
  warning: { itemClass: 'is-warning' },
  success: { itemClass: 'is-success', iconClass: 'fa fa-lg fa-check-circle' }


And call this.$notify method as usual:

this.$notify('A message that should be displayed', 'info')


this.$'A message that should be displayed')

HTML in notification

this.$notify('<p>My HTML <br/>message</p>', 'info', {mode: 'html'})


this.$notify.error('<p>My HTML <br/>message</p>', {mode: 'html'})

Permanent notification

this.$notify('Permanent message', 'info', {permanent: true})
