If you're using Ruby on Rails and Bootstrap originally from Twitter, then you may want to display flash messages with the
alert styles. Here is a quick and easy way of doing so.
You just need to quickly extend
application_helper.rb with the following:
def flash_class(level) case level when :notice then "alert alert-info" when :success then "alert alert-success" when :error then "alert alert-error" when :alert then "alert alert-error" end end
Now when you call a flash message, you can use the following in your view:
<% flash.each do |key, value| %> <div class="<%= flash_class(key) %>"> <%= value %> </div> <% end %>
And just use:
flash[:success] = "Woohoo!"
As a success or:
flash[:alert] = "Alerting you to the monkey on your car!"
