sfGrowl4RailsPlugin symfony plugin

Port of Jim Fiorato Rails plugin Growl4Rails to Symfony.

Growl4Rails is a javascript component that provides the UI for growl-like notifications in your rails application.

This plugin requires Prototype 1.6 or higher and Scriptaculous 1.7 or higher, use Fabien Potencier sfPrototypePlugin plugin.



* For symfony 1.0.x
symfony plugin-install http://plugins.symfony-project.com/sfGrowl4RailsPlugin



Growl4Rails.showGrowl method takes a single hash as an argument. The hash can have the following keys:

image_path - 32x32 icon title - title of the growl message - the growl message

<?php use_helper('Growl4Rails') ?>
<?php javascript_tag(growl4rails_growl('images/icon.png', 'System Notification', 'The user has been added.')); ?>


    link_to_remote(image_tag('icon').__('add'), array(
        'update' => 'c_div',
        'url'    => 'user/add?id='.$id,
        'complete' => visual_effect('highlight', 'c_div').growl4rails_growl('user_icon', $user->getName(), __('the user has been added')),


<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
  Growl4Rails.showGrowl({image_path:"/images/download.png", title:"Foo Bar.pdf", message:"File is ready for download."});

To handle the 'click' event from the Growl, you can do the following:

<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
  var growl_id = Growl4Rails.showGrowl({image_path:"/images/download.png", title:"Foo Bar.pdf", message:"File is ready for download."});
  document.observe(growl_id + ':clicked', function(event) {
    console.log('Growl %s was clicked.', Event.findElement(event).id);
