Swift Twig Mail Generator

This package takes a Twig template and generates a Swift mail from this template.


composer require thecodingmachine/swift-twig-mail-template

Once installed, you can start creating an instance of the SwiftTwigMailTemplate class.

The SwiftTwigMailTemplate represents a mail template that can generate Swift mails.


Because we consider that an example is better than everything else...

Start by creating your mail template. Your template should have two blocks:

{% block subject %}
    Your suject
{% endblock %}

{% block body_html %}
    Body with HTML.
{% endblock %}

If you want you can add another block containing your text body. This block is optional since we can get your the text body directly from the html one.

{% block body_text %}
    Body without HTML.
{% endblock %}

Also, you can create a mail with a text body only (and no HTML):

{% block subject %}
    Your suject
{% endblock %}

{% block body_text %}
    Body with text only.
{% endblock %}

Now, let's create a SwiftTwigMailTemplate instance. This object will generate a SwiftMail from the twig template.

// We assume that $twigEnvironment is a valid TwigEnvironment instance
$twigSwiftMailTemplate =  new SwiftTwigMailTemplate($twigEnvironment, 'path/to/template.twig');

// The renderMail method generates a Swift mail object.
$swiftMail = $twigSwiftMailTemplate->renderMail(['paramKey' => paramValue]);

// We fill the swift mail with additional information

// We assume that $mailer is a valid Swift_Mailer instance

You can also embed images directly into the email by using the embedImage function. By embedding an image into the email, most mail clients will display the image directly without printing the traditional warning.

Note: embedImage expects one parameter: the full path to the image file.

{% block subject %}
    Welcome !
{% endblock %}

{% block body_html %}
    <img src="{{ embedImage(constant('ROOT_PATH')~'/public/img/header.png') }}" alt="header">

    <h1>Hello World!</h1>
{% endblock %}
