README

Beautymail makes it super easy to send beautiful responsive HTML emails. It's made for things like:

  • Welcome emails
  • Password reminders
  • Invoices
  • Data exports

If you're on Laravel 4, use the 1.x branch.

Templates

There are tons of great looking HTML email templates out there. Campaign Monitor and Mailchimp has released hundreds for free. It is pretty simple to adapt a template to Beautymail. If you do, please send a PR.

Installation

Add the package to your composer.json by running:

composer require snowfire/beautymail

When it's installed, publish assets to your public folder

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Snowfire\Beautymail\BeautymailServiceProvider"

Configure your settings such as logo url and social links in config/beautymail.php

Send your first Beauty mail

Add this to your routes/web.php

Route::get('/test', function()
{
	$beautymail = app()->make(Snowfire\Beautymail\Beautymail::class);
	$beautymail->send('emails.welcome', [], function($message)
	{
		$message
			->from('bar@example.com')
			->to('foo@example.com', 'John Smith')
			->subject('Welcome!');
	});

});

Now create resources/views/emails/welcome.blade.php

@extends('beautymail::templates.widgets')

@section('content')

	@include('beautymail::templates.widgets.articleStart')

		<h4 class="secondary"><strong>Hello World</strong></h4>
		<p>This is a test</p>

	@include('beautymail::templates.widgets.articleEnd')


	@include('beautymail::templates.widgets.newfeatureStart')

		<h4 class="secondary"><strong>Hello World again</strong></h4>
		<p>This is another test</p>

	@include('beautymail::templates.widgets.newfeatureEnd')

@stop

That's it!

Lumen support

In order to get this working on Lumen follow the installation instructions except for the artisan vendor:publish command, since Lumen does not provide this command. Instead you have to copy the assets folder from vendor/snowfire/beautymail/public/ to the public folder in your Lumen project manually.

Make sure to also put the beautymail.php config file in the config folder (default available in src/config/settings.php)

Enable mailing in Lumen

After this you will need to install and configure illuminate/mailer with:

composer require illuminate/mail

and add this to your bootstrap/app.php:

$app->withFacades();
$app->register(App\Providers\AppServiceProvider::class);

See this blog post for more details and how to use different mail libraries in lumen:

Configure Beautymail classes and configuration parameters

In order to get Beautymail working on Lumen you need to add the following to your bootstrap/app.php in order to resolve missing config files, parameters and classes (before you register BeautymailServiceProvider):

// Provide required path variables
$app->instance('path.config', env("STORAGE_DIR", app()->basePath()) . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'config');
$app->instance('path.public', env("STORAGE_DIR", app()->basePath()) . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'public');

// Enable config for beautymail
$app->configure('beautymail');

// Provide class alliases to resolve Request and Config
class_alias(\Illuminate\Support\Facades\Request::class, "\Request");
class_alias(\Illuminate\Support\Facades\Config::class, "\Config");
