jQuery Meow

jQuery Meow mimics Growl notications. It supports all jQuery events and you can bind it to various sources for message input making it ideal for form validation, Rails flash notices, or a replacement for the alert() box.

Example

Usage

var options = {
  title: 'Meow Example',
  message: 'Hello, World!',
};

$.meow(options);
