Require this package, with Composer, in the root directory of your project.

$ composer require vinkla/alert

If you want you can use the facade. Add the reference in config/app.php to your aliases array.

'Alert' => Vinkla\Alert\Facades\Alert::class

Include the alert view within your view templates with blade.




This is the class of most interest. It is bound to the ioc container as alert and can be accessed using the Facades\Alert facade.


This facade will dynamically pass static method calls to the alert object in the ioc container which by default is the Alert class.


This class contains no public methods of interest. This class should be added to the providers array in config/app.php. This class will setup ioc bindings.


Here you can see an example of just how simple this package is to use. Out of the box it will just work:

// You can alias this in config/app.php.
use Vinkla\Alert\Facades\Alert;

Alert::danger('Eat my shorts.');
// We're done here - how easy was that, it just works!

Alert::error('You, sir, are an idiot.');
// This example is simple and there are far more methods available.

If you prefer to use dependency injection over facades like me, then you can inject the manager:

use Vinkla\Alert\Alert;

class Foo
    protected $alert;

    public function __construct(Alert $alert)
        $this->alert = $alert;

    public function bar($message)

App::make('Foo')->bar('I see the light... it burns!');

There is also a helper function if that is what you prefer.

// Use the methods.
alert()->error('I feel like such a tool.');

// The alert function accepts message and style.
alert('Marge, can I go out and play?', 'info');
