Roar - Notifications (v1.0)

Project Roar - Notifications Showcase Roar is a notification widget that streamlines incoming messages, such as updates or errors, without distracting the user from their browser experience or breaking their work-flow by displaying obtrusive alerts. Roar is inspired by Growl, the notification system for Mac OS X and is realised with MooTools.

Showcases:

Showcase “Update Ticker”

Timed updates on events.

The Action Happens Here

JavaScript & MooTools

// This time we use load, to load the whole page, a bit more time
window.addEvent('load', function() {
 
	var roar = new Roar({
		position: 'lowerLeft',
		duration: 5000 // 5 seconds until message fades out
	});
 
	roar.alert('Britney Spears meets Frankenstein', 'The Beast and the Beauty, who is who!');
 
	roar.chain(function() {
		roar.alert('News gone crazy', 'Frankenstein is lost!');
	}).chain(function() {
		roar.alert('Frankenstein dead!', 'Who did it, we know it!');
	}).chain(function() {
		roar.alert('We fired our editor!', 'He only wrote stupid lorem ipsum dummies, hopefully we get better texts for the next showcase!');
	});
 
 
});
