Version 0.3.0 2014-02-05


  1. Add "samwilson/kohana_mailqueue": "0.3.0" to your composer.json
  2. Run composer update
  3. Create the database table (this is an idempotent command): php index.php mailqueue:upgrade


Copy MODPATH/kohana_mailqueue/config/mailqueue.php to APPPATH/config/mailqueue.php and edit the values therein.


  1. Add to the queue:

    $mq = new MailQueue;

    Messages are explained in the Swiftmailer documentation.

  2. View the queue:

  3. Send pending mail:

    php index.php mailqueue:send --count=n

    Where n is an integer number of messages to send in this run.


Integration tests can be run in the usual Kohana fashion. From the base application directory, run

./vendor/bin/phpunit --group=mailqueue

These tests require a database connection to be set up in config/database.php and MailQueue to be installed (see above).
