Kohana Mailer Module

This module provides an interface for creating emails similar to the way ActionMailer does for Ruby on Rails. Its main purpose is to make emails more object oriented and allow the application developer to send emails with a single line of code. Each mailer is comprised of the following pieces:

  • A mailer class found in the classes/mailer/ folder.
  • The mailer class should implement a build() function that handles setting up the mailer properties.
  • Corresponding views found in views/mailer/name/name.(text|html).php.

Below is an example showing how to send the mailer in your application and the supporting mailer code.

	# Sending email from your controller or model.
	Mailer::factory('<name>', param1, param2);

	# application/classes/mailer/name.php
	Class Mailer_Name extends Mailer {
	
			public function build($param1, $param2) {
				$this->to = $param1;
				$this->subject = 'Email Subject';
				$this->formats = array('html');
			}
	
	}

	# applications/view/mailer/name.php
	Some HTML content for the mailer gets built here.
	
	<?= $data->param1 ?>

Available Properties

$to - The address to which the email should be sent

$from - The from address

$auto_render - Whether or not to render the template automatically just before deliver() is executed on the mail driver. If this is FALSE, you should ensure to set the contents of the email inside of $content[$format] where $format is each of the formats you wish to send the email in.

$formats - An array of supported mail formats, typically this would include text and/or html.

$template - The name of the template to render for each format. Defaults to $name/$name, which maps to views/mailer/$name/$name.$format.php. Make sure not to include the $format suffix as part of the template name.

$layout - The layout template that should be used as a shell for rendering the template. By default its set to the 'blank' layout as included in this module.
