A toast is a modeless, unobtrusive message used to display a brief, auto-expiring notification to the user.

This transient message appears and fades into the background automatically after a short while, e.g. informing the user that a command has been executed properly. (The name toast is because it is like a friend lifting and lowering his glass towards you non-intrusively thus assuring you that all is well.) Read more about toasts in the UX Guidelines.

Wrap any text and an dismiss button in .toast for basic toast messages.
