You can install the package using composer

$ composer require yoeunes/toastr

Then add the service provider to config/app.php. In Laravel versions 5.5 and beyond, this step can be skipped if package auto-discovery is enabled.

'providers' => [

As optional if you want to modify the default configuration, you can publish the configuration file:

$ php artisan vendor:publish --provider='Yoeunes\Toastr\ToastrServiceProvider' --tag="config"

For Lumen :

  1. In bootstrap/app.php
    • uncomment $app->withFacades();
    • add bindings for ToastrServiceProvider : $app->register(Yoeunes\Toastr\ToastrServiceProvider::class);
  2. Add config/session.php, since it is not present in Lumen by default. You can take session.php from Laravel Official Repository


Include jQuery and toastr.js in your view template:

  1. Link to jquery <script src="jquery.min.js"></script> or from cdn with our custom blade directive @jquery
  2. Link to toastr.css <link href="toastr.css" rel="stylesheet"/> or @toastr_css
  3. Link to toastr.js <script src="toastr.js"></script> or @toastr_js

The custom directives @jquery, @toastr_css, @toastr_js pulls the latest version for jquery and toastr from cdn.js, you could also pass a specified version a first parameter: @jquery(3.2), @toastr_css(2.1.4) and @toastr_js(2.1.4)

  1. use toastr() helper function inside your controller to set a toast notification for info, success, warning or error
// Display an info toast with no title
toastr()->info('Are you the 6 fingered man?')

as an example:


namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use App\Post;
use App\Http\Requests\PostRequest;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;

class PostController extends Controller
    public function store(PostRequest $request)
        $post = Post::create($request->only(['title', 'body']));

        if ($post instanceof Model) {
            toastr()->success('Data has been saved successfully!');

            return redirect()->route('posts.index');

        toastr()->error('An error has occurred please try again later.');

        return back();

After that add the @toastr_render at the bottom of your view to actualy render the toastr notifications.

<!doctype html>

Other Options

// Set a warning toast, with no title
toastr()->warning('My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father, prepare to die!')

// Set a success toast, with a title
toastr()->success('Have fun storming the castle!', 'Miracle Max Says')

// Set an error toast, with a title
toastr()->error('I do not think that word means what you think it means.', 'Inconceivable!')

// Override global config options from 'config/toastr.php'

toastr()->success('We do have the Kapua suite available.', 'Turtle Bay Resort', ['timeOut' => 5000])

other api methods:

// You can also chain multiple messages together using method chaining

toastr()->info('Are you the 6 fingered man?')->success('Have fun storming the castle!')->warning('doritos');

// @jquery, @toastr_css and @toastr_js is an alias for helper functions:

function jquery(string $version = '3.3.1', string $src = null);
function toastr_css(string $version = '2.1.4', string $href = null);
function toastr_js(string $version = '2.1.4', string $src = null);

// you could replace @toastr_render by :

toastr()->render() or app('toastr')->render()

// you can use toastr('') instead of toastr()->success()

function toastr(string $message = null, string $type = 'success', string $title = '', array $options = []);


  • toastr($message) is equivalent to toastr()->success($message)
  • toastr($message, 'info') is equivalent to toastr()->info($message)
  • toastr($message, 'warning') is equivalent to toastr()->warning($message)
  • toastr($message, 'error') is equivalent to toastr()->error($message)
