Software, Development, and WordPress

An Improved JavaScript Alert with Alertify.js

Finding JavaScript resources is almost too easy – aside from a quick Google search or looking through some of the stuff that’s available on GitHub, you can find practically almost anything you need.

But finding something that has a nice API, is lightweight, and doesn’t require any third-party library is becoming a bit rare.

JavaScript Alerts Level Up

For those of you who have read several of my past articles, you know that I’m a fan of simple, targeted solutions to problems (or apps, if you will ;) and alertify.js is exactly that:

  • It’s got a really easy API
  • It’s small in file size (especially when minified)
  • And it doesn’t depend on third-party frameworks

The script also offers dialogs, customizable buttons and labels, and provides styles for notifications, success messages, and error messages.

On it’s own, it’s a really useful script but I could also see this being easy integrated into a WordPress theme for a number of uses and in a number of different ways.

Anyway, I highly recommend checking it out – it you can checkout both the demo and the source code.

Because of how much I like this project, I’ll likely be retiring one of my own, but I’ll cover that in another post.

    Thanks for the kind words and for the feature! You’re three bullet points hit exactly what I wanted to achieve with it, easy to use, lightweight and no dependencies.
