How to display a plugin error to the user?

When building a plugin, how do I show errors to the user?

At the moment I’m using this:

if (variable_that_equates_to_true) {
    throw new Error(
        "Error text goes here"

But it just prints the error to the console. I want it to display as an alert (or something similar) to the user.

Bubble shows errors in alert messages for a myriad of other things. Is there anyway to hook into that?

@Minty did you ever solve this?

Bubble allows you to do this:

Thanks @tylerboodman, was more thinking of using the window.alert() function in the JavaScript server side action to display a custom error/alert to the browser.

I’m guessing it’s not possible if the plugin action is server side.

Where you are writing this code in the “action” or “element” tab?

Its in the action tab, server-side. I’ve posed the question to Bubble to see if they can enlighten us.
