Q:

email - How to set Mailersend PHP API - template variables?

I'm trying to set up the Mailersend PHP API for my email templates, but I'm not sure how to incorporate template variables. I want to personalize my emails with dynamic content, such as the user's name, email, and other custom details.

Could someone guide me on how to use template variables with Mailersend PHP API? I would appreciate any code examples or step-by-step instructions on how to implement template variables effectively.

Thanks in advance!

Hey,

I went through a similar situation a while back, and I found a straightforward way to implement template variables using the Mailersend PHP API. Here's what worked for me:

First, ensure that you have the Mailersend PHP SDK properly installed in your project. You can easily do this by including the following line in your composer.json file:


"mailersend/mailersend-php": "^1.0"


Next, initialize the Mailersend client by providing your API key, like this:
php
$mailerSend = new MailerSend('YOUR_API_KEY');


To create a template with variables, you can make use of the `createTemplate` method, as shown in the example below:
php
$templateData = [
'name' => 'Welcome Template',
'html' => file_get_contents('path/to/your/template.html'),
'subject' => 'Hello {{name}}',
'template_type' => 'transactional', // Adjust this based on your requirements
'variables' => ['name', 'email'] // Provide the variables you intend to use
];

$template = $mailerSend->template()->createTemplate($templateData);


In the code snippet above, `template.html` is the HTML file containing your email template. You can include `{{name}}` (or any other variable name) within the template to indicate where the personalized content should appear.

Once the template is created, you can send out personalized emails by setting the template ID and variables like this:
php
$emailData = [
'from' => ['email' => 'sender@example.com'],
'personalizations' => [
[
'to' => [['email' => 'recipient@example.com']],
'subject' => 'Hello {{name}}', // Ensure the subject matches your template
'variables' => [
'name' => 'John Doe',
'email' => 'johndoe@example.com',
]
]
]
];

$response = $mailerSend->email()->send($emailData);


In the `personalizations` section, you can define the recipient email, subject, and the corresponding variable values. Mailersend will automatically replace the variables in your template with the provided values when sending the email.

That's all there is to it! I hope this helps you set up template variables with the Mailersend PHP API effectively. Feel free to ask if you have any further questions or need assistance with anything else.

Best regards!

Hey there!

Setting up template variables with Mailersend PHP API is quite straightforward. You can easily personalize your email templates by following these steps:

1. First, make sure you have the Mailersend PHP SDK installed in your project. You can install it via Composer by running the following command:


composer require mailersend/mailersend-php


2. Next, initialize the Mailersend client by adding the following code to your PHP file:
php
use MailerSend\MailerSend;
use MailerSend\Helpers\Builder\Variable;

$mailerSend = (new MailerSend())
->setApiKey('YOUR_API_KEY');


3. Once you have the Mailersend client instance, you can create a template by using the `createTemplate` method. Here's an example:
php
$template = $mailerSend->template()
->createTemplate([
'name' => 'My Template',
'html' => file_get_contents('path/to/your/template.html'),
'subject' => 'Welcome {{name}}', // You can use template variables in the subject as well
]);


4. After creating the template, you can make use of template variables by adding them to your email request. For example:
php
$mailerSend->email()
->setFrom('sender@example.com')
->setTo('recipient@example.com')
->setTemplateId($template->template_id)
->setVariables([
'name' => 'John Doe',
'email' => 'johndoe@example.com',
'custom_variable' => 'Some custom value',
])
->send();


In the example above, I included the `name`, `email`, and `custom_variable` template variables. You can add as many variables as you need, and they will be replaced with the corresponding values when the email is sent.

That's it! With these steps, you should be able to set up Mailersend PHP API with template variables successfully. Let me know if you have any further questions or need more clarification!

Cheers!
