Requirements

This package requires ColdFusion 9+ or Lucee 4.5+

Please note that the tests require ColdFusion 10+ or Lucee 4.5+

You will need a valid Postmark account and an associated account token to interact with the API.

Examples

The API wrapper covers all of the methods available within the API. Here's a short sample of what can be achieved:

var oPostmark = new Postmark( accountToken='xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx' );

// List servers associated with the account
var servers = oPostmark.listServers();

// Get details on a specific server
var server = oPostmark.getServer( serverId='xxxxxxx' );

// Send an email with attachments
oPostmark.sendEmail(
  serverToken='xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx',
  From='[email protected]',
  To='[email protected]',
  subject='Your awesome email subject line here',
  TextBody='This is the email email.',
  HtmlBody='<p>This is the email body</p>',
  attachments=[
    {name='Text File', srcfile='/attachments/test.txt'},
    {name='Image', srcfile='/attachments/something.png'}
  ]
);

// Send batch emails
oPostmark.sendBatchEmails(
  serverToken='xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx',
  emailData = [
    {
      From='[email protected]',
      To='[email protected]',
      subject='First Batch Email',
      TextBody='This is an email.',
      attachments=[
        {name='Text File', srcfile='/attachments/test.txt'},
        {name='Image', srcfile='/attachments/something.png'}
      ]
    },
    {
      From='[email protected]',
      To='[email protected]',
      subject='Second Batch Email',
      TextBody='This is an email .'
    }
  ]
);

// Validate a template
oPostmark.validateTemplate(
  servertoken = 'xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx',
  Subject = "{{##company}}{{name}}{{/company}} {{subjectHeadline}}",
  HtmlBody = "{{##company}}{{address}}{{/company}}{{##each person}} {{name}} {{/each}}",
  TextBody = "{{##company}}{{phone}}{{/company}}{{##each person}} {{name}} {{/each}}",
  TestRenderModel: {
    "userName": "bobby joe"
  }
);

// Send an email using a template
oPostmark.sendEmailWithTemplate(
    serverToken = 'xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx',
    templateId = 'xxxxxxx',
    TemplateModel = {
      'user_name' = 'John Smith',
      'company' = {
        'name' = 'ACME'
      }
    },
    from = '[email protected]',
    to = '[email protected]'
);

CommandBox Compatible

Installation

This CF wrapper can be installed as standalone or as a ColdBox Module. Either approach requires a simple CommandBox command:

box install postmark

Then follow either the standalone or module instructions below.

Standalone

This wrapper will be installed into a directory called postmark and then can be instantiated via new postmark.Postmark() with the following constructor arguments:

accountToken	=	'xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx'

ColdBox Module

This package also is a ColdBox module as well. The module can be configured by creating a postmark configuration structure in your application configuration file: config/Coldbox.cfc with the following settings:

postmark = {
  accountToken	=	'xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx'
};

Then you can leverage the CFC via the injection DSL: postmark@postmark"
