Latest Version on Packagist [Tests Total Downloads

A Laravel wrapper for working with the Buttondown Email API, allowing you to manage subscribers with ease. If you would like to read the API documentation for yourself you can find it here.

So far I have only integrated the Subscribers endpoints, as it is all I needed right now. Feel free to PR anything else!

Installation

You can install the package via composer:

composer require juststeveking/laravel-buttondown-email

You can publish the config file with:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="JustSteveKing\Laravel\ButtonDownEmail\ButtonDownServiceProvider" --tag="config"

This is the contents of the published config file:

return [
    'api' => [
        'key' => env('BUTTONDOWN_KEY'),
        'url' => env('BUTTONDOWN_URL', 'https://api.buttondown.email/v1'),
        'timeout' => env('BUTTONDOWN_TIMEOUT', 10),
        'retry' => [
            'times' => env('BUTTONDOWN_RETRY_TIMES', null),
            'milliseconds' => env('BUTTONDOWN_RETRY_MILLISECONDS', null),
        ],
    ]
];

Usage

This library is aimed to be easy to use, and slots into Laravel with no issues.

The package will install a Service Provider for you, meaning that all you need to do is resolve the Client from the container, and start using it.

Please bear in mind as this is a Laravel package I have leveraged the Laravel Validator to validate requests before sending them to the API. This will throw a basic Exception if it fails. Subscription rules are as follows:

$rules = [
    'email' => ['required', 'email:rfc,dns'],
    'metadata' => ['nullable', 'array'],
    'notes' => ['nullable', 'string'],
    'referrer_url' => ['nullable', 'string', 'max:500'],
    'tags' => ['nullable', 'array'],
];

List all Subscribers

use JustSteveKing\Laravel\ButtonDownEmail\Client;

class SubscribersController extends Controler
{
    public function __construct(
        protected Client $service,
    ) {}

    public function __invoke(Request $request)
    {
        // This will return a Collection of subscribers
        $subscribers = $this->service->subscribers()->get();
    }
}

Create a new Subscriber

use JustSteveKing\Laravel\ButtonDownEmail\Client;

class SubscribeController extends Controler
{
    public function __construct(
        protected Client $service,
    ) {}

    public function __invoke(Request $request)
    {
        $subscriber = $this->service->subscribers()->create([
            'email' => $request->get('email'), // required
            'metadata' => $request->get('metadata', null), // optional
            'notes' => $request->get('notes', null), // optional
            'referrer_url' => $request->get('referrer_url', null), // optional
            'tags' => $request->get('tags', null), // optional
        ]);
    }
}

    ) {}

    public function __invoke(Request $request)
    {
        // This will return true if successful, otherwise throw an exception
        $deleted = $this->service->subscribers()->delete(
            id: $request->get('id'),
        );
    }
}

        $subscriber = $this->service->subscribers()->update(
            attributes: [
                'email' => $request->get('email'), // This is required for creating and updating
                'notes' => 'Here is a note from my controller',
