Better toast for React
#250 — August 4, 2021
What’s New in React-Hot-Toast 2.0 — React Hot Toast is a popular React on-page notifications system. Although the opportunity to customize the notifications in the new release chips away at the original ‘toast’ metaphor, there’s a lot of configurability in the new version that will prove valuable for many. It also has better accessability and a custom renderer. GitHub repo.
