What is Clojurewerkz Mailer

Mailer is an ActionMailer-inspired mailer library for Clojure. It combines Postal, Clostache and a number of its own features and conventions to make delivering complex template-based emails as painless as possible.

Project Goals

  • Do not reinvent the wheel
  • Email delivery should be testable
  • Steal good parts from ActionMailer

Project Maturity

Mailer is a moderately mature project, the API hasn't changed in over a year.

Documentation

Mailer uses Mustache templates on the classpath and Postal mail message attribute maps. Key functions are:

  • clojurewerkz.mailer.core/build-email
  • clojurewerkz.mailer.core/deliver-email
  • clojurewerkz.mailer.core/render
  • clojurewerkz.mailer.core/delivery-mode!
  • clojurewerkz.mailer.core/with-delivery-mode
  • clojurewerkz.mailer.core/with-settings
(ns my-app
  (:require [clojurewerkz.mailer.core :refer [delivery-mode! with-settings with-defaults with-settings build-email deliver-email]]))

;; set default delivery mode (:smtp, :sendmail or :test)
(delivery-mode! :test)

;; build a message (can be used in unit tests or for various forms of delayed delivery)
;;
;; Pleasen note that email/templates/warning.mustache should be on your classpath. For example, with Leiningen 2,
;; you would use :resource-paths for this, like so: :resource-paths ["src/resources"]
(build-email {:from "Joe The Robot", :to ["ops@megacorp.internal" "oncall@megacorp.internal"] :subject "OMG everything is down!"}
  "email/templates/warning.mustache" {:name "Joe" :host "host3.megacorp.internal"})

;;build a message using an HTML template, specify parameter mime type :text/html
(build-email {:from "Joe The Robot", :to ["ops@megacorp.internal" "oncall@megacorp.internal"] :subject "OMG everything is down!"}
  "email/templates/warning.html.mustache" {:name "Joe" :host "host3.megacorp.internal"} :text/html)

;; deliver mail, uses *delivery-mode* value to determine how exactly perform the delivery, defaults to :text/plain
(deliver-email {:from "Joe The Robot", :to ["ops@megacorp.internal" "oncall@megacorp.internal"] :subject "OMG everything is down!"}
  "email/templates/warning.mustache" {:name "Joe" :host "host3.megacorp.internal"})

;; deliver mail, specify html content type
(deliver-email {:from "Joe The Robot", :to ["ops@megacorp.internal" "oncall@megacorp.internal"] :subject "OMG everything is down!"}
  "email/templates/warning.html.mustache" {:name "Joe" :host "host3.megacorp.internal"} :text/html)

;; alter message defaults, for example, From header
(with-defaults { :from "Joe The Robot <robot@megacorp.internal>" :subject "[Do Not Reply] Warning! Achtung! Внимание!" }
  (send-warnings))

;; alter delivery mode (effective for current thread only):
(with-delivery-mode :smtp
  (do-something))

;; alter SMTP settings (effective for current thread only, only makes sense for :smtp delivery mode):
(with-settings { :host "smtp.megacorp.internal" }
  (with-delivery-mode :smtp
    (do-something-that-delivers-email-over-smtp)))

;; render a template
(render "templates/hello.mustache" {:name "Joe"}) ;; => "Hello, Joe"
