protoGrowl: Notification Messages

Category: JavaScript, Library

Over at Midgard CMS, they have created protoGrowl, a JavaScript utility to bubble up event notifications in a web page. This library is inspired by the OS X tool Growl that gives a system level notification system to Mac OS X.



  1. <script language="javascript">
  2.   new protoGrowl({type: 'info', title: 'Some title', content: 'Some content'});
  3. </script>

Looks very interesting, however, did I miss something or are there no demos on that site? I guess I could just go download it and try it, but I’m lazy, anyone have a link to a demo somewhere?

The demos are included in the zip download.

As JavaScript the protoGrowl works pretty well. I just downloaded it and tried it out. It is extremely easy to add into your existing scripts. I am even considering it as a common debug messager for development, in place of alerts() and even instead of Firebug. Still toying with that idea though.
