Build Status Coverage Status Packagist

This package defines a MailTo class with a simple API for easily generating RFC 6068-compliant mailto: links in your markup.

Installation

You may install the Mailto: Link Formatter package via Composer:

$ composer require stevegrunwell/mailto-link-formatter

If you're already including the Composer-generated autoloader in your project, there's nothing more to do. Otherwise, you'll need to include src/MailTo.php into your project.

Usage

The MailTo class collects information about the mailto: link, then generates the link itself via its getLink() method:

use SteveGrunwell\MailToLinkFormatter\MailTo;

$mailto = new MailTo;
$mailto->setRecipients('test@example.com');
$mailto->setHeaders([
    'subject' => 'Hello World!',
    'cc'      => 'foo@example.com',
]);
$mailto->setBody('Some message.');

$mailto->getLink();
# => mailto:test@example.com?subject=Hello%20World!&cc=foo%40example.com&body=Some%20message.

If you'd prefer, you may also set properties directly on the MailTo object, but be aware that this is merely a convenience method for the corresponding setters and getters:

use SteveGrunwell\MailToLinkFormatter\MailTo;

$mailto = new MailTo;

// The same as calling $mailto->setRecipients('test@example.com').
$mailto->recipients = 'test@example.com';

// The same as calling $mailto->getRecipients().
$mailto->recipients
# => ['test@example.com']

Properties that are used that do not have corresponding setters/getters (e.g. anything except "recipients", "headers", and "body") will be treated as individual headers, passed through the setHeader() and getHeader() methods:

use SteveGrunwell\MailToLinkFormatter\MailTo;

$mailto = new MailTo;
$mailto->subject = 'Message subject';

$mailto->getHeaders();
# => ['subject' => 'Message subject']

Specifying multiple recipients

If the mailto: link should have multiple recipients, they can be set either by passing an array or a comma-separated string to setRecipients():

use SteveGrunwell\MailToLinkFormatter\MailTo;

$mailto = new MailTo;
$mailto->setRecipients([
    'foo@example.com',
    'bar@example.com',
]);

$mailto->getLink();
# => mailto:foo@example.com,bar@example.com

The same can be done for headers that might have more than one value, such as cc or bcc.

List of headers

While all headers defined in RCF 822 are considered valid, the most common headers used in mailto: links are:

to
The intended recipient(s) of the message.
subject
The subject line of the message
cc
One or more email address to "carbon-copy" (CC) on the message.
bcc
One or more emails to "blind carbon-copy" (BCC) on the message.

All headers passed to the package will automatically be made lower-cased.

Setting arguments via the constructor

The setters and getters defined by the MailTo class are rather conventional, but the class also accepts the most common arguments via its constructor:

use SteveGrunwell\MailToLinkFormatter\MailTo;

$mailto = new MailTo('test@example.com', [
    'subject' => 'Hello World!',
    'cc'      => 'foo@example.com',
], 'This is the message body.');

// This is equivalent to:
$mailto = new MailTo;
$mailto->setRecipients('test@example.com');
$mailto->setHeaders([
    'subject' => 'Hello World!',
    'cc'      => 'foo@example.com',
]);
$mailto->setBody('This is the message body.');
