A toast is a modeless, unobtrusive message used to display a brief, auto-expiring notification to the user.

This transient message appears and fades into the background automatically after a short while, e.g. informing the user that a command has been executed properly. (The name toast is because it is like a friend lifting and lowering his glass towards you non-intrusively thus assuring you that all is well.) Read more about toasts in the UX Guidelines.

Wrap any text in .toast for basic toast messages.

Use when

  • The user needs nonintrusive feedback about an action performed
  • The message is by nature short lived and just positive affirmation and not intended for deep scrutiny
  • Information may need to be shown across several services, e.g. for as such
  • Toast starts fading into the background after 2500 ms and is gone after 5000 ms.



There are 4 options for toasts and to apply them simply add one of the following classes: .toast-success, .toast-info, .toast-warning or .toast-danger.
