This code creates an Interactive Notification Center UI in Vanilla JS. It displays notifications with user actions. The dropdown button toggles the visibility of notifications. The delete button removes notifications with a slide-out animation, and the like button changes to a ✔ symbol upon click. The time updates every minute.

Moreover, it enhances user experience by providing interactive notifications with customizable actions. Its Vanilla JS implementation ensures lightweight and easy integration without additional dependencies.

How to Create Interactive Notification Center UI in Vanilla JS

1. First of all, load the Google Fonts by adding the following CDN links into the head tag of your HTML document.

<link rel="preconnect" href="https://fonts.googleapis.com" />
    <link rel="preconnect" href="https://fonts.gstatic.com" crossorigin />
    <link
      href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Open+Sans:ital,wght@0,300..800;1,300..800&display=swap"
      rel="stylesheet"
    />

2. Now, let’s set up the HTML structure. You’ll need a container element for the notification center, notification items, and buttons for user actions.

<div class="phone">

3. Style the notification center and its components using CSS to achieve the desired appearance and layout. You can customize the CSS according to your needs.

:root {
	margin: 0;
	padding: 0;
	box-sizing: border-box;

	--color-black: #1f1f1e;
	--color-white: #fafbfc;
	--color-yellow: #feca45;
	--color-gray: #5c595a;
	--phone-background: linear-gradient(
		to right bottom,
		#4a3972,
		#473279,
		#432a7f,
		#3e2185,
		#39178b
	);
	--color-accent: #39178b;
	--color-red: #ed054e;
}

body{
	font-family: "Open Sans", sans-serif;
	font-size: 1rem;
	color: var(--color-black);
	background-color: var(--color-yellow) !important;
}

.phone {
	max-width: 250px;
	height: 550px;
	margin: 1rem auto;
	border: 10px solid var(--color-black);
	border-radius: 24px;
	background-image: var(--phone-background);
}

.phone__indicators {
	display: flex;
	justify-content: space-between;
	align-items: center;
	padding: 0 10px;
	margin: 5px auto;
	color: var(--color-white);
}

.phone__icons {
	display: flex;
	gap: 10px;
}

.time {
	font-size: 0.8rem;
}

.notification__center {
	max-width: 200px;
	margin: 0 auto;
	padding: 5% 3%;

	> button {
		display: flex;
		justify-content: center;
		align-items: center;
		gap: 8px;
		font: inherit;
		width: 100%;
		border-radius: 4px;
		cursor: pointer;
		font-weight: bold;
		color: var(--color-accent);
		border: 2px solid var(--color-accent);
		background-color: var(--color-white);
	}
	> button:hover {
		color: var(--color-white);
		border: 2px solid var(--color-white);
		background-color: var(--phone-background);
	}
}

.notifications__container {
	width: 100%;
	margin: 1rem auto;
	animation: bounce 0.5s linear forwards;
}

.notification__item {
	padding: 1rem;
	margin-bottom: 10px;
	display: grid;
	grid-template-columns: repeat(3, 1fr);
	align-items: center;
	font-size: 0.5rem;
	border: 1px solid transparent;
	border-radius: 4px;
	background-color: var(--color-white);
}

.notification__image {
	width: 50px;
	height: 50px;
	border: none;
	border-radius: 50%;
	overflow: hidden;
	margin-right: 11px;

	> img {
		height: 100%;
		width: 100%;
		object-fit: cover;
	}
}

.notification__content {
	width: 40px;
}

.user__name {
	font-weight: bold;
	color: var(--color-accent);
}

.actions {
	display: flex;
	align-items: center;
	justify-content: center;

	> button {
		border: none;
		background-color: transparent;
		cursor: pointer;
		font-size: 1.2rem;
	}
}

.hidden {
	display: none;
}

.delete {
	color: var(--color-gray);
	animation: shake 0.5s infinite;
}

@keyframes bounce {
	0%,
	40%,
	75%,
	95% {
		transform: translateY(0);
	}

	15% {
		transform: translateY(-20px);
	}

	65% {
		transform: translateY(-15px);
	}

	85% {
		transform: translateY(-5px);
	}

	100% {
		transform: translateY(0);
	}
}

@keyframes slideout {
	0% {
		transform: translateX(0);
	}

	50% {
		opacity: 0;
	}

	100% {
		transform: translateX(-200px);
		opacity: 0;
	}
}

@keyframes heartbeat {
	from {
		transform: scale(1);
	}

	to {
		transform: scale(1.3);
	}
}

@keyframes shake {
	0% {
		transform: rotateZ(0);
	}

	34% {
		transform: rotateZ(-15deg);
	}

	68% {
		transform: rotateZ(15deg);
	}

	100% {
		transform: rotateZ(0);
	}
}

4. Finally, add the following JavaScript code to make the notification center interactive. We’ll handle dropdown functionality, deleting notifications, and liking notifications.

const dropdownButton = document.querySelector(".notification__center > button");
const notificationsContainer = document.querySelector(
	".notifications__container"
);
const notifications = document.querySelectorAll(".notification__item");
const deleteButton = document.getElementsByClassName("delete");
const likeButton = document.getElementsByClassName("like");
const timeElement = document.querySelector(".time");

let i = 0;

for (i = 0; i < deleteButton.length; i++) {
	deleteButton[i].addEventListener("click", function () {
		this.parentElement.parentElement.style.animation = "slideout 1s forwards";
	});
}

for (i = 0; i < likeButton.length; i++) {
	likeButton[i].addEventListener("click", function () {
		this.style.animation = "none";
		this.textContent = "✔";
		this.style.color = "#60c91a";
		this.style.fontSize = "24px";
	});
}

dropdownButton.addEventListener("click", function () {
	for (const notification of notifications) {
		notification.style.animation = "none";
	}

	for (const like of likeButton) {
		like.textContent = "❤︎";
		like.style.color = "#ed054e";
		like.style.animation = "heartbeat 1s infinite forwards";
	}

	if (dropdownButton.getAttribute("aria-expanded") === "true") {
		dropdownButton.setAttribute("aria-expanded", "false");
	} else {
		dropdownButton.setAttribute("aria-expanded", "true");
	}

	notificationsContainer.classList.toggle("hidden");
});

setCurrentTime();
setInterval(setCurrentTime, 60 * 1000);

function setCurrentTime() {
	const currentDate = new Date();
	let hours = currentDate.getHours() + "";
	if (hours.length <= 1) {
		hours = 0 + hours;
	}
	let minutes = currentDate.getMinutes() + "";
	if (minutes.length <= 1) {
		minutes = 0 + minutes;
	}

	timeElement.textContent = `${hours} : ${minutes}`;
}
