Mailgun.js Build Status

A javascript sdk for Mailgun built with webpack, babel & es6. This can be used in node or in the browser*.

NOTE: If used in the browser, a proxy is required to communicate with the Mailgun api due to cors limitations. Also, do not publish your private api key in frontend code.

Documentation

Install

  • Requires node.js >= 12.x

Install mailgun.js with:

npm install mailgun.js

Setup Client

Next, require the module and instantiate a mailgun client by calling new Mailgun(formData) and then using mailgun.client setup the client with basic auth credentials (username: 'api', key: 'key-yourkeyhere').

NOTE: starting from version 3.0 you need to pass FormData (we need this to keep library universal). For node.js you can use form-data library.

const formData = require('form-data');
const Mailgun = require('mailgun.js');
const mailgun = new Mailgun(formData);
const mg = mailgun.client({username: 'api', key: process.env.MAILGUN_API_KEY || 'key-yourkeyhere'});

In the case your mailgun account is eu hosted you would need to define eu's subdomain as url in mailgun's Client constructor:

const mg = mailgun.client({username: 'api', key: process.env.MAILGUN_API_KEY || 'key-yourkeyhere', url: 'https://api.eu.mailgun.net'});

Methods

The following service methods are available to instantiated clients. The examples assume you have already created a mailgun client as mg with valid credentials.

Method naming conventions:

  • get or get{{Item}} - expected response for client is a single object
  • list or list{{Items}} - expected response for client is a list of objects
  • create or create{{Item}} - expected response for client is a single object
  • update or update{{Item}} - expected response is an object with a status message
  • destroy or destroy{{Item}} - expected response is an object with a status message

      .then(response => {
          console.log(response);
      })
  • Browser example of send file

    Before sending the file you need to somehow get the Blob of the file. Usually can get it from the onChange event of input tag with type file.

    const handleFileSelected = async (event) => {
      const files = Array.from(event.target.files)
      const fileBuffer = await files[0];
    }
    <input type="file" onChange={handleFileSelected} name="file-uploader"/>

    Then you can use the same approach as shown above for node.js apps.

      const file = {
        filename: 'test.pdf',
        data: fileBuffer
      };
    
      let messageParams = {
        from: "Excited User <mailgun@sandbox-123.mailgun.org>",
        to: ["test@example.com"],
        subject: "Test subject",
        text: "Hello here is a file in the attachment",
        attachment: file
      };
    
      const res = await mg.messages.create(DOMAIN, messageParams);

    Promise Returns:

    {
      id: '<20151025002517.117282.79817@sandbox-123.mailgun.org>',
      message: 'Queued. Thank you.'
    }

Templates

Mailgun’s templates uses a fork of the very popular template engine handlebars.

To provide values for a substitution you need to use 'h:X-Mailgun-Variables' property in the message description.

Make sure that this property is a JSON string like {"title":"A title", "body":"The body"}.

You can find few examples of how to use templates below.

  • Providing values for title and slug variables to render in template
...
  const {
    title,
    slug,
  } = someDataSource;

  const mailgunData = {
    from: 'mailer@example.com>',
    to: 'recipient@example.com',
    subject: `Email ${title}`,
    template: 'name-of-the-template-you-made-in-mailgun-web-portal',
    'h:X-Mailgun-Variables': JSON.stringify({ // be sure to stringify your payload
      title,
      slug,
    }),
    'h:Reply-To': 'reply-to@example.com',
  };

  try {
    const response = await mailgun.messages.create(DOMAIN_NAME, mailgunData);
...
  • Providing an array of objects to render them in the template
  ...
  const mailgunData = {
    from: 'mailer@example.com>',
    to: 'recipient@example.com',
    subject: `Email ${title}`,
    template: 'name-of-the-another-template-you-made-in-mailgun-web-portal',
    'h:X-Mailgun-Variables': JSON.stringify({
    "arrayItems": [
        {
            "question": "test_question",
            "answer": "test_answer"
        },
        {
            "question": "test_question",
            "answer": "test_answer"
        }
    ]})
  };
  try {
    const response = await mailgun.messages.create(DOMAIN_NAME, mailgunData);
  ...

Recipient Variables

Docs

Recipient Variables are custom variables that you define, which you can then reference in the message body. They give you the ability to send a custom message to each recipient while still using a single API Call.

...
 const mailgunData = {
    from: 'Example.com Mailer <mailer@mailer.example.com>',
    to: ['me@example.com', 'you@example.com'],
    subject: 'Recipient - %recipient.title%',
    html: 'Here\'s %recipient.title% and <a href="%recipient.link%">link</a>',
    'recipient-variables': JSON.stringify({
      'me@example.com': {
        title: 'Me',
        link: 'href-var',
      },
      'you@example.com': {
        title: 'You',
        link: 'slug-recipient-var-c',
      },
    }),
  };

  try {
    const response = await mailgun.messages.create(DOMAIN_NAME, mailgunData);
...

npm install -g http-proxy

Then run the following command from the mailgun-js directory:

http-server -p 4001 --proxy="https://api.mailgun.net"

Demo should be up and running at http://0.0.0.0:4001/examples/

Development

Requirements

  • Requires node.js >= 4.x

Install node dependencies with:

npm install

Build

Build for dev purposes(without minimizing)

npm run build

Build for release purposes(include minimizing)

npm run build:release

Merging changes

Before PR merge check that commits info will be correctly added to the CHANGELOG.md file: 'npm run release -- --dry-run'

CI process isn't working currently, so please manually run npm run test

Tests

npm run tests

Watch tests with

npm run watch-tests

To test new functionality locally using npm link please use npm script npm run link. This is needed for correct exporting d.ts files.

Release Process

Releases occur after feature branches have been tested and merged into master.

First, checkout master and pull the latest commits.

git checkout master
git pull

Next, run npm run release.

After that, cd ./dist and then run npm login and npm publish to publish changes on npm.
