Code Samples

Example: a simple Mail

<?php

namespace App\Containers\User\Mails;

use App\Containers\User\Models\User;
use Illuminate\Bus\Queueable;
use App\Ship\Parents\Mails\Mail;
use Illuminate\Contracts\Queue\ShouldQueue;

class UserRegisteredMail extends Mail implements ShouldQueue
{
    use Queueable;

    protected $user;

    public function __construct(User $user)
    {
        $this->user = $user;
    }

    public function build()
    {
        return $this->view('user::user-registered')
            ->to($this->user->email, $this->user->name)
            ->with([
                'name' => $this->user->name,
            ]);
    }
}

Usage from an Action:

Notifications can be sent from Actions or Tasks using the Mail Facade.

Mail::send(new UserRegisteredMail($user));

Email Templates

Templates should be placed inside a folder Templates inside the Mail folder.

To access a Mail template (same like accessing a web view) you must call the container name then the view name.

In the example below we’re using the user-registered.blade.php template in the User Container.

$this->view('user::user-registered')

Configure Emails

Open the .env file and set the From mail and address, this will be used globally whenever the from function is not called in the Mail.

MAIL_FROM_ADDRESS=test@test.test
MAIL_FROM_NAME="apiato"

To use different email address in some classes add ->to($this->email, $this->name) to the build function in your Mail class.

By default Apiato is configured to use Log Driver MAIL_DRIVER=log, you can change that from the .env file.

Queueing A Notification

To queue a notification you should use Illuminate\Bus\Queueable and implement Illuminate\Contracts\Queue\ShouldQueue.
