Best jQuery Status Message Plugin?

What is the best jQuery status message plugin?

I like jGrowl and Purr, but jGrowl doesn’t have the feature to remain sticky (not close automatially) and Purr doesn’t seem to work right in IE 6.

I would like to show messages like… the site is about to go down for maintenance, your such and such job has completed, and stuff like that.

Answers:

jGrowl does look to have sticky – see sample 2 in the demo page:

https://github.com/stanlemon/jGrowl

…ah – or did you mean after the page has reloaded?

I would then handle this on the server side – i.e. include a sitedown.js that triggers the growl notice each time any page is visited.

A few options…

  • Humanized Messages (demo, 3 KB) looks very cool, and has a nice history rollout
  • Pines Notify (13 KB) is extremely customizable and supports jQuery UI themes
  • jGrowl (6 KB) does actually have a sticky option – use { sticky: true }

I really like this humanmessage plugin. You can customize it to hang around longer and change the appearance, etc —

We have started using http://boedesign.com/demos/gritter/ and have to say it accomplishes the osx growl feel better than the others listed out of the box.
