Beautymail for Laravel 5

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 dev-master

When it's installed, add it to the providers list in config/app.php

Snowfire\Beautymail\BeautymailServiceProvider::class,

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.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
