Bad libraries build collections, good libraries build services, great libraries build communities. The last one is true about JS libraries. The JavaScript environment has grown huge and its collection of libraries as well. Let’s talk about one of the latest. Bootbox.js is a JS library to create programmatic dialog boxes using Bootstrap modals. 

Bootbox.js is a small JavaScript library which allows you to create programmatic dialog boxes using Bootstrap modals. You don’t have to worry about creating, managing, or removing any of the required DOM elements or JavaScript event handlers.

Bootbox provides three functions, alertconfirm, and prompt, whose aim is to mimic their native JavaScript equivalents. Each Bootbox function calls a fourth public function, dialog, which you can use to create your own custom dialogs.

Tests are run using Karma using the Mocha test adapter. To run the tests yourself, simply run npm install within the project followed by npm test. Please note that this will require PhantomJS being installed and in your path – if it is not, you may run the tests and capture browsers manually by running karma start from the root of the project.

Bootbox is a wrapper around Bootstrap’s modal functionality, so you need to include the libraries in order:

  1. jQuery
  2. Popper.js
  3. Bootstrap
  4. Bootbox
  5. Bootbox Locales
