Give your rails apps growl based notifications. Basically a rails plugin wrapper for Stan's excellent jGrowl library. This is a nice alternative to static flash messages, plus it integrates with all flash messages automatically, no need to output flash messages in your view!


  • Jquery 1.2.6
  • Cookies should be enabled --it should be by default


  1. rake growlr:install:all

  2. include the following snippet in your layout or view file, preferably in the head section of your layout file.

     <%= include_growlr %>


Growlr will automatically detect flash messages and display them accordingly. You can explicitly call Growlr by writing the following in your action or controller:

 growl "hello peoples"

You can also pass the same options as the jgrowl plugin.


  • work on the yml processing for the config files - should have support for multiple configs in one yaml file
  • write the functional specs
