Plone integration with Gritter

Project Description

A Plone add-on that makes the standard Plone status messages appear like a Growl notification using the jQuery Gritter plugin.

It transforms the Plone status messages from this

to this

How it works

It just works! If JavaScript is disabled you will have the standard Plone behaviour. Test it visiting:


To install redturtle.gritterize you simply add redturtle.gritterize to the list of eggs in your buildout, run buildout and restart Plone. Then, install redturtle.gritterize using the Add-ons control panel.


At the moment it is really basic, this will change. You can configure the stickiness and the persistence time (in milliseconds) by adding a custom a config object to the igritter global object:

igritter.config = {
    time: {
      'portalMessage info': 10000,
      'portalMessage warning': 20000,

According to the matching portal message class the right persistnece time will be set (in this case 10 seconds for the info ones, 20 for the warning ones). If the lookup fails the gritter message will be sticky.

Adding more gritter messages

Following the same approach you can add additional gritter messages (e.g. you can pop up form validation messages).

This is an example:

message = jq('.fieldErrorBox');
mygritter = {title: message.parent().find('.widget > span > a').html(),
             text: message.html(),
             class_name: 'portalMessage error',
             target: message,
             remove: false

This will take the element with class .fieldErrorBox and try to get info from the page to fill in the gritter message.

If remove is true the orginal error will be removed. Changelog =========
