Build Status

Allows you to use Foundation's Inky email templates nicely in Laravel 5.

Any views with a .inky.php extension will be compiled with both Inky and Blade, allowing you to use both templating engines seamlessly together. CSS is automatically inlined so styles work in email clients that don't support external stylesheets.

Installation

Require with composer

composer require petecoop/laravel-inky

Once installed, you'll need to register the service provider. Open config/app.php and add to the providers key:

Petecoop\LaravelInky\InkyServiceProvider::class

Usage

Check the Foundation for Emails docs for full usage on how to use Inky and Foundation for Emails CSS.

Create an Inky view e.g. emails/welcome.inky.php

<container>
  <row>
    <columns>Welcome, {{ $name }}</columns>
  </row>
</container>

Use Mail as usual in Laravel

Mail::send('emails.welcome', ['name' => $user->name], function ($m) use ($user) {
  $m->from('hello@app.com', 'Your Application');

  $m->to($user->email, $user->name)->subject('Welcome!');
});

You can create a Blade layout to inherit from e.g. emails/layout.inky.php

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width"/>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="foundation-emails.css">
</head>
<body>
  @yield('content')
</body>
</html>

then

@extends('emails.layout')

@section('content')
  <container>
    <row>
      <columns>Welcome, {{ $name }}</columns>
    </row>
  </container>
@stop

CSS Inlining

<style> and <link rel="stylesheet"> are automatically inlined.

The location of your <link rel="stylesheet"> href is resolved to the resources/assets/css directory, so in the example above it expects some CSS at resources/assets/css/foundation-emails.css.
