This package allows you to send emails via mail service providers template's engine.

There are 5 drivers available:

There is also and log and null driver for testing and debug purpose.



  • PHP 7.2

You can install the package via composer:

composer require dansmaculotte/laravel-mail-template

The package will automatically register itself.

To publish the config file to config/mail-template.php run:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="DansMaCulotte\MailTemplate\MailTemplateServiceProvider"

Finally, install the email service package needed:

  • Mailjet
composer require mailjet/mailjet-apiv3-php
  • Mandrill
composer require mandrill/mandrill
  • SendGrid
composer require sendgrid/sendgrid
  • Mailgun
composer require mailgun/mailgun-php
  • SendinBlue
composer require sendinblue/api-v3-sdk


Configure your mail template driver and credentials in config/mail-template.php.


After you've installed the package and filled in the values in the config-file working with this package will be a breeze. All the following examples use the facade. Don't forget to import it at the top of your file.

use MailTemplate;
$mailTemplate = MailTemplate::make()
    ->setSubject('Welcome aboard')
    ->setFrom(config('mail.name'), config('mail.email'))
    ->setRecipient('Recipient Name', 'recipient@email.com')
        'first_name' => 'Recipient',
$response = $mailTemplate->send();

If an error occurs in the send method it will throw a SendError::responseError exception.

Via Notification

Create a new notification via php artisan:

php artisan make:notification WelcomeNotification

Set via to MailTemplateChannel:

 * Get the notification's delivery channels.
 * @param  mixed  $notifiable
 * @return array
public function via($notifiable)
    return [MailTemplateChannel::class];

Implement toMailTemplate method and prepare your template:

public function toMailTemplate($notifiable)
    return MailTemplate::prepare(
        'Welcome aboard',
            'name' => config('mail.from.name'),
            'email' => config('mail.from.email'),
            'name' => $notifiable->full_name,
            'email' => $notifiable->email,
            'first_name' => $notifiable->first_name

And that's it. When MailTemplateChannel will receive the notification it will automatically call send method from MailTemplate facade.

Mailjet Specifics

Mailjet API allows to set an email to debug templates. When a template error is encountered on email sending, Mailjet sends an error report to this mailbox. To do so, set the email in config/mail-template.php, in key mailjet.debug_email.
