A Plone add-on that makes the standard Plone status messages appear like a Growl notification using the jQuery Gritter plugin.

It transforms the Plone status messages from this

The default Plone messages

to this

The gritterized Plone messages

How it works

It just works! If JavaScript is disabled you will have the standard Plone behaviour. Test it visiting:


To install redturtle.gritterize you simply add redturtle.gritterize to the list of eggs in your buildout, run buildout and restart Plone. Then, install redturtle.gritterize using the Add-ons control panel.


At the moment it is really basic, this will change. You can configure the stickiness and the persistence time (in milliseconds) by adding a custom a config object to the igritter global object:

igritter.config = {
    time: {
      'portalMessage info': 10000,
      'portalMessage warning': 20000,

According to the matching portal message class the right persistnece time will be set (in this case 10 seconds for the info ones, 20 for the warning ones). If the lookup fails the gritter message will be sticky.
