Inline Email - CLI
A CLI for converting HTML files to inline styled HTML suitable for emails.
The CLI also supports Inky HTML-based templating using
--inky as an argument.
The CLI is designed to make working with ExactTarget, MailChimp, Emarsys, or any other email service easier if you're simply pasting the output into those systems.
Supported NodeJS Versions
Current 2.x version of
inline-email are tested against NodeJS 8.x -> 11.x.
The 2.x will work on version 6.x and 8.x, but the test runners no longer support these so validation is not guaranteed.
Previous 1.x versions of
inline-email support NodeJS 6.x -> 9.x. Older NodeJS will not work with this package.
What this does not do.
inline-email does NOT check you're using email safe HTML tags.
It also won't replace any non-safe tags.
npm install -g inline-email
<style> tags and inlines the styles found within after which it removes the
<style> tags from the HTML. This process is done using Juice. Currently not all of Juice's options can be passed through the CLI, though it will use the appropriate Juice function to handle your HTML input depending on if you provided css or not.
You can simple print the output to the console.
$ inline-email some.html> your-html-to-stdout
Or you can send it to a file.
$ inline-email some.html --out inlined.html
If you wish to pass in a
.css files (or files) on your own (if your HTML doesn't have
<style> tags) you can. Note that if the file does have these tags they will be ignored and the passed in files will be used instead.
$ inline-email --css some.css --out inlined.html some.html
--inky nothing changes, but the HTML file is pre-proccessed through Inky. All the other agruments operate exactly the same.
$ inline-email --inky inky.html> your-slightly-different-inkyish-output
