  • Copy both system/application/config/postageapp.php and system/application/libraries/PostageApp.php
  • Edit config/postageapp.php to include your PostageApp Project API key.

Email Usage

PostageApp for CodeIgniter works very similarly to built-in Email class. Here's a simple example:


$this->postageapp->subject('Example Email');
$this->postageapp->message('Example Message');

$this->postageapp->variables(array('variable' => 'value'));

$this->postageapp->send(); # returns JSON response from the server

If you wish to send both html and plain text parts call message function like this:

  'text/html'   => 'html content',
  'text/plain'  => 'text content'

You can set headers all in one go:

  'subject' => 'Example Subject',
  'from'    => ''

Recipients can be specified in a number of ways. Here's how you define a list of them with variables attached:

  '' => array('variable1' => 'value',
                                    'variable2' => 'value'),
  '' => array('variable1' => 'value',
                                    'variable2' => 'value')

For more information about formatting of recipients, templates and variables please see documentation
