Sinatra Contact Form

A quick Sinatra app that can accept a contact form's POST, verify non-robotness with Google's reCAPTCHA, and send an email with SMTP.

How it works

This app expects a web form to POST the following:

  • name
  • email
  • message
  • h-recaptcha-response, which is from a hCaptcha

The app will then use the SMTP settings defined in ENV variables (see .env-example) to send you the form contents in an email.

On success (or captcha fail), users will be redirected to the URLs of your choice (also defined in ENV variables).

Running in development

shotgun app.rb -p 4567

You will need to save .env-example as .env, and replace the contents according to your own preferences.

Deploying to production

I recommend Heroku. If you use them, you'll need to set some environment variables. You can do this from your .env file by running this command (Mac only):

cat .env | sed "s/#.*//" | tr "\n" " " | pbcopy

You then type heroku config:set and paste your clipboard, which will have all the environment variables in the right format for the heroku command. (I tried to do this all in one command but it didn't work.)

Sending email

Try Postmark or one of the similar alternatives for sending email.
