The library eases the definition and sending of mails in multiple languages within an PHP application. It's main objective is to allow an easy mail sending without a lot of code. A mail is described in an abstract way in a so-called message which is rendered in multiple steps.


  • Text & HTML Mails
  • Automatic translation into the user's locale (including the sender's email address and name)
  • Text can be fetched from an arbitrary resource / translator (currently, there is only one resolver for the Symfony translator)
  • Templates can be rendered with an arbitrary template engine (currently, there is only a Twig renderer)
  • Mails can be sent via various transport ways (currently, there is a transport via Swift Mailer)


At first, you need to instantiate the mailer (here with Twig as renderer and Symfony translator as template resolver):

$mailer = new DaaMailer(
	new SymfonyTemplateResolver($translator),
	new TwigTemplateRenderer($twig),

Afterwards, you can define senders that are used to send the message:

// Here you define the login data, the sending email address and the name of the sender for a specific locae
$mailer->registerSender('support', 'de_DE', new SmtpSender('smtp.googlemail.com', 'foo@acme.com', 'password123', 'kundenservice@acme.com', 'Kundenservice'));
$mailer->registerSender('support', 'en_US', new SmtpSender('smtp.googlemail.com', 'foo@acme.com', 'password123', 'support@acme.com', 'Service'));

Then, you have to define a new message class. A message class is the abstract definition of a mail and is rendered by the mailer before sending.


use Daa\Library\Mail\Message\MessageInterface;
use Daa\Library\Mail\RecipientContainer;

class RegistrationMessage implements MessageInterface

    private $user;

    public function __construct(User $user)
        $this->user = $user;

    public function getLocale()
        return $this->user->getLocale();

    public function getSenderId()
        return 'support';

    public function getRecipients()
        return new RecipientContainer($this->user->getEmail());

    public function getSubjectKey()
        return 'user.registration.subject';

    public function getTemplateKey()
        return 'user.registration.text';

    public function getParameters()
        return ['user' => $this->user];

At last, you only have to put the mail texts into your translation files (or in any other way the template resolver expects them).

And now, you can send an email:

$message = new RegistrationMessage($user);

And that's it. Easy, huh?

Advanced Usage

You can extend this library to allow some more advanced usages. For example, you can embedd your own template resolver and renderer.
