Build Status


ember-notify displays wee little notification messages down the bottom of your Ember.js app.


ember-notify is compatible with the following presentation frameworks:

  • Zurb Foundation 6 (default)
  • Zurb Foundation 5: <EmberNotify @messageStyle="foundation-5" />
  • Thoughtbot Refills: <EmberNotify @messageStyle="refills" />
  • Twitter Bootstrap: <EmberNotify @messageStyle="bootstrap" />
  • Semantic-UI: <EmberNotify @messageStyle="semantic-ui" />
  • UIKit: <EmberNotify @messageStyle="uikit" />

The CSS animations are inspired by CSS from alertify.js. You can also customize the positioning and animations by overriding the default ember-notify CSS class. For usage, see the animations example.


  1. Add <EmberNotify /> to one of your templates, usually in application.hbs
  2. Inject the notify service
  3. Display messages using the info, success, warning, alert and error methods


import Component from '@glimmer/component';
import { inject as service } from '@ember/service';
import { action } from '@ember/object';

export default class MyComponent extends Component {
  @service notify;

  sayHello() {
    this.notify.info('Hello there!');

By default the notifications close after 2.5 seconds, although you can control this in your template:

<EmberNotify @closeAfter={{4000}} />

Or you can control when each message is closed:

let message = this.notify.alert('You can control how long it is displayed', {
  closeAfter: 10000 // or set to null to disable auto-hiding

...and you can hide messages programmatically:


You can specify raw HTML:

this.notify.info({ html: '<div class="my-div">Hooray!</div>' });

Rounded corners, if that's your thing:

this.notify.alert(`This one's got rounded corners.`, {
  radius: true

Include custom classNames on your message:

this.notify.alert('Custom CSS class', {
  classNames: ['my-class']

Include an identifier to avoid duplicate messages being displayed:

this.notify.alert('Unique Message', { id: 'some-unique-identifier' });

Multiple Containers

If you want to have separate notifications and control where they're inserted into the DOM you can have multiple <EmberNotify /> components, but only one of them can be accessed using the injected service. The others you will need to provide a source property, so secondary containers should be used as follows:

 <EmberNotify @source={{this.alternativeNotify}} />
import Component from '@glimmer/component';
import Notify from 'ember-notify';
import { action } from '@ember/object';

export default class MyComponent extends Component {
  alternativeNotify = Notify.create();

  clicked() {
    this.alternativeNotify.success('Hello from the controller');

Custom message template

You can pass a block with template you want to use for each message (instead of using the default one). It may look like this:

  <EmberNotify as |message close|>
    <a {{on "click" (action close)}} class="close">
      close from block
    <span class="message-from-block">

Two arguments are passed to the block: message object, and close action. Make sure you are using Closure Actions syntax passing the action (e. g. <a {{action close}} or <YourComponent @close={{action close}} />.

Custom Animations

By default, the ember-notify message will appear in the bottom right corner of the screen. You may want to control the positioning or the animation. To do so, you need to pass a CSS class using the defaultClass option. This will render the top level ember-notify element with the class you pass in.

<!-- Gives class="custom-notify"> to top level element -->
<EmberNotify @defaultClass="custom-notify" />

Then you need to add custom styling for each of the elements within the ember-notify structure. The following snippet summarizes rules needed for a custom look. For a complete example that you can drop into your project, see examples/custom-position-animations.css

/* Main container */
.custom-notify {
  position: fixed;
  top: 10px;
  right: 0;
  left: 0;

/* Message box */
.custom-notify .callout {
  position: relative;
  overflow: hidden;

/* Classes applied for animating in/out */
.custom-notify .ember-notify-show {}
.custom-notify .ember-notify-hide {}

Turn off loading CSS

If you want to use the addon without loading the CSS themes (because you have your own CSS) add this to your ember-cli-build.js file:

let app = new EmberApp({
  emberNotify: {
    importCss: false


This module is an ember-cli addon, so installation is easy as pie.

ember install ember-notify
