An awesome replacement for JavaScript's alert.

A success modal

See it in action!

Learn how to use it!


You can install SweetAlert through bower:

bower install sweetalert

Or through npm:

npm install sweetalert

Alternatively, download the package and reference the JavaScript and CSS files manually:

<script src="dist/sweetalert.min.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="dist/sweetalert.css">

Note: If you're using an older version than v1.0.0, the files are lib/sweet-alert.min.js and lib/sweet-alert.css


The easiest way to get started is follow the SweetAlert tutorial on Ludu!


The most basic message:

swal("Hello world!");

A message signaling an error:

swal("Oops...", "Something went wrong!", "error");

A warning message, with a function attached to the "Confirm"-button:

  title: "Are you sure?",
  text: "You will not be able to recover this imaginary file!",
  type: "warning",
  showCancelButton: true,
  confirmButtonColor: "#DD6B55",
  confirmButtonText: "Yes, delete it!",
  closeOnConfirm: false,
  html: false
}, function(){
  "Your imaginary file has been deleted.",

A prompt modal where the user's input is logged:

  title: "An input!",
  text: 'Write something interesting:',
  type: 'input',
  showCancelButton: true,
  closeOnConfirm: false,
  animation: "slide-from-top"
}, function(inputValue){
  console.log("You wrote", inputValue);

Ajax request example:

  title: 'Ajax request example',
  text: 'Submit to run ajax request',
  type: 'info',
  showCancelButton: true,
  closeOnConfirm: false,
  disableButtonsOnConfirm: true,
  confirmLoadingButtonColor: '#DD6B55'
}, function(inputValue){
  setTimeout(function() {
    swal('Ajax request finished!');
  }, 2000);

<link rel="stylesheet" href="dist/sweetalert.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="themes/twitter/twitter.css">

If you want to contribute:

  • Fork the repo

  • Make sure you have Node, NPM and Gulp installed. When in the SweetAlert directory, run npm install to install the dependencies. Then run gulp while working to automatically minify the SCSS and JS-files.

  • Keep in mind that SweetAlert uses Browserify in order to compile ES6-files. For easy debugging, make sure you reference the file dist/sweetalert-dev.js instead of sweetalert.js.

  • After you're done, make a pull request and wait for approval! :)
