standby offers several types of alerts, notifications and tooltips. This document is a quickstart guide for using standby in your Shiny applications. Let us look at a simple example below:


ui <- fluidPage(
  useToast(), # include dependencies
  actionButton(inputId = "btn",
               label   = "iziToast Demo")
server <- function(input, output, session) {

  observeEvent(input$btn, {
    # display toast notification
    toast("Hey there!", "Thank you for exploring buzz!")

shinyApp(ui, server)

To use alerts or notifications from buzz in your Shiny application, follow the below steps:

  • Include the dependencies in the UI part of the app using the appropriate use* functions (useToast() in the above example).
  • Include the corresponding rendering function in the Server part of the app (toast() in the above example).
