Maktoub

Build Status

Maktoub is a Ruby on Rails engine for email newsletters.

  • Write your newsletter as you would write any view (erb partial)
  • Maktoub sends your email in multipart as both html and text

Installation

  # Add this line to your Gemfile
  gem 'maktoub'

Then bundle install

Compatibility

Compatible with Rails 4+. For Rails 3.1+ use version 0.3.1

Usage

Configuration

You can run rails generate maktoub:config to generate the configuration file. This task creates a matkoub.rb initializer file (in config/initializer) Follow instructions inside the file to configure it the way you want.

Authoring

Create a newsletter as a normal view partial in app/views/maktoub/newsletters/. The subject of the newsletter will be automatically deduced from the partial's name.

Editing Styles

Create a view partial in app/views/layouts/maktoub/_styles.erb. Note that this completely overrides the styles that come with maktoub. You can copy the built-in styles and override them.

Sending messages

Maktoub comes with two rake tasks to allow you to:

  • send a test message to the "from" address of your newsletter.

    rake maktoub:test['name_of_my_newsletter_partial']
  • publish the newsletter to all your subscribers. If you have delayed_job installed then it will use it to deliver each email as a background job

    rake maktoub:mail['name_of_my_newsletter_parial']

Alternatively you have access to a Maktoub::NewsletterMailer ActionMailer object with a publish method

   Maktoub::NewsletterMailer.publish('my_newsletter_partial', name: 'User name', email: 'user@example.com')

View in browser

To be able to view your newsletter in a browser add it to routes.rb.

  • mount the engine at a path of your choice. e.g. mount Maktoub::Engine => '/'
  • you would access the newsletter at: http://example.com/<mounted_path>/newsletter/my_awesome_newletter

Contributing

Send a pull request including documentation changes and tests.

TODO

  • create github page for project
  • allow management of multiple lists
  • allow rendering of newletter from remotely hosted views (e.g. S3)
