General Usage

Using this package is actually pretty easy. Adding notifications to your application actually require only one line of code.

#/ usage addSuccess

flash()->addSuccess('Your email has been verified.');
#/ usage addError

flash()->addError('There was a problem submitting your review.');
#/ usage addWarning

flash()->addWarning('Your application may not have been received.');
#/ usage addInfo

flash()->addInfo('This may take a while. Do not refresh the page.');

These four methods (addSuccess, addError, addWarning, addInfo) are simply convenience shortcuts for the addFlash method, allowing you to specify the type and message in a single method call rather than having to pass both as separate arguments to the addFlash method.

flash()->addFlash(string $type, string $message, string $title = null, array $options = [])
#/ usage addFlash

flash()->addFlash('success', 'Your request has been received.');
param description  
$type Notification type : success, error, warning, info ….etc  
$message The body of the message you want to deliver to your user. This may contain HTML. If you add links, be sure to add the appropriate classes for the framework you are using.  
$title The notification title, Can also include HTML  
$options Custom options for javascript libraries (toastr, noty, notyf …etc)  

Modifiers

options

You can specify custom options for the flash messages when using a JavaScript library like toastr, noty, or notyf.

The options() method allows you to set multiple options at once by passing an array of key-value pairs, while the option() method allows you to set a single option by specifying its name and value as separate arguments.

The optional $merge argument for the options() method can be used to specify whether the new options should be merged with any existing options, or whether they should overwrite them.

flash()->options(array $options, bool $merge = true);

Refer to the documentation for your chosen JavaScript library to see which options are available and how they should be formatted.

#/ usage options

flash()
    ->options([
        'timeout' => 3000, // 3 seconds
        'position' => 'top-center',
    ])
    ->addWarning('Your contact may not have been added.');
