The default branch name for this repository has been changed to main as of 07/27/2020.

This library allows you to quickly and easily use the Twilio SendGrid Web API v3 via Go.

Version 3.X.X of this library provides full support for all Twilio SendGrid Web API v3 endpoints, including the new v3 /mail/send.

This library represents the beginning of a new path for Twilio SendGrid. We want this library to be community driven and Twilio SendGrid led. We need your help to realize this goal. To help make sure we are building the right things in the right order, we ask that you create issues and pull requests or simply upvote or comment on existing issues or pull requests.

Please browse the rest of this README for further detail.

We appreciate your continued support, thank you!

Quick Start

Hello Email

The following is the minimum needed code to send an email with the /mail/send Helper (here is a full example):

With Mail Helper Class

package main

import (
	"fmt"
	"log"
	"os"

	"github.com/sendgrid/sendgrid-go"
	"github.com/sendgrid/sendgrid-go/helpers/mail"
)

func main() {
	from := mail.NewEmail("Example User", "test@example.com")
	subject := "Sending with Twilio SendGrid is Fun"
	to := mail.NewEmail("Example User", "test@example.com")
	plainTextContent := "and easy to do anywhere, even with Go"
	htmlContent := "<strong>and easy to do anywhere, even with Go</strong>"
	message := mail.NewSingleEmail(from, subject, to, plainTextContent, htmlContent)
	client := sendgrid.NewSendClient(os.Getenv("SENDGRID_API_KEY"))
	response, err := client.Send(message)
	if err != nil {
		log.Println(err)
	} else {
		fmt.Println(response.StatusCode)
		fmt.Println(response.Body)
		fmt.Println(response.Headers)
	}
}

The NewEmail constructor creates a personalization object for you. Here is an example of how to add to it.

Without Mail Helper Class

The following is the minimum needed code to send an email without the /mail/send Helper (here is a full example):

package main

import (
	"fmt"
	"github.com/sendgrid/sendgrid-go"
	"log"
	"os"
)

func main() {
	request := sendgrid.GetRequest(os.Getenv("SENDGRID_API_KEY"), "/v3/mail/send", "https://api.sendgrid.com")
	request.Method = "POST"
	request.Body = []byte(` {
	"personalizations": [
		{
			"to": [
				{
					"email": "test@example.com"
				}
			],
			"subject": "Sending with Twilio SendGrid is Fun"
		}
	],
	"from": {
		"email": "test@example.com"
	},
	"content": [
		{
			"type": "text/plain",
			"value": "and easy to do anywhere, even with Go"
		}
	]
}`)
	response, err := sendgrid.API(request)
	if err != nil {
		log.Println(err)
	} else {
		fmt.Println(response.StatusCode)
		fmt.Println(response.Body)
		fmt.Println(response.Headers)
	}
}

General v3 Web API Usage

package main

import (
	"fmt"
	"github.com/sendgrid/sendgrid-go"
	"log"
	"os"
)

func main() {
	request := sendgrid.GetRequest(os.Getenv("SENDGRID_API_KEY"), "/v3/api_keys", "https://api.sendgrid.com")
	request.Method = "GET"

	response, err := sendgrid.API(request)
	if err != nil {
		log.Println(err)
	} else {
		fmt.Println(response.StatusCode)
		fmt.Println(response.Body)
		fmt.Println(response.Headers)
	}
}
