Standardizing Rails Flash Messages

Free Resource
a proposal from Luke Randall on the rails mailing list

:notice for positive feedback (action successful, etc)
:message for neutral feedback (reminders, etc)
:warning for negative feedback (action unsuccessful, error encountered, etc)

Then, in your controller or view you could place code such as the following:

FLASH_NAMES = [:notice, :warning, :message]

<% for name in FLASH_NAMES %>
  <% if flash[name] %>
    <%= "
" %> <% end %> <% end %>
