Toast Notification in React

To achieve this we need to install a package 'react-toastify' to render the toast notification in react and can import it and use it in our sample project.

Step 1. Create a React.js Project

Let's create a new React project by using the following command.

npx create-react-app toast-notification-app

Step 2. Install NPM dependencies

npm i react-toastify

Step 3. Create a Component for toast notification

Create a folder for toast notification and inside it create a component, 'toastNotification.js'. Add the following code to this component.

import React from 'react';
import { ToastContainer, toast } from 'react-toastify';
import 'react-toastify/dist/ReactToastify.css';
function ToastNotification() {
  const toastDark = () => toast.dark('This is Toast Notification for Dark');
  const toastInfo = () =>'This is Toast Notification for Info');
  const toastSuccess = () => toast.success('This is Toast Notification for Success');
  const toastWarn = () => toast.warn('This is Toast Notification for Warn');
  const toastError = () => toast.error('This is Toast Notification for Error');
  return (
    <div className="App">
      <h3>Toast Notification in React </h3>
      <button className="btn" onClick={toastDark}>Toast Notification for  - Dark</button>
      <button className="btn" onClick={toastInfo}>Toast Notification for  - Info</button>
      <button className="btn" onClick={toastSuccess}>Toast Notification for  - Success</button>
      <button className="btn" onClick={toastWarn}>Toast Notification for  - Warn</button>
      <button className="btn" onClick={toastError}>Toast Notification for  - Error</button>
export default ToastNotification;

Step 4

Add the below code in App.js file

import './App.css';
import ToastNotification from './toastNotification/toastNotification';

function App() {
  return (
export default App;

Step 5. Output

Now, run the project by using the 'npm start' command, and check the result.
