    • Multiple email service providers
    • Multiple cdn integrations
    • Smart cache for image uploads
    • Contact management
    • Screenshots
    • build and export
    • Minify HTML

    $ npm i pochta-mjml -g 

    Example Usage

    Below are a few basic examples, run $ pochta help for more details.

    Send an email:

    $ pochta send 

    Create a profile:

    $ pochta profiles new

    • The example below will generate 320 and 800 pixel wide screenshots @3 device scale factor. The output will be in the pdf format.
    $ pochta capture -w 320 -w 800 -d 3 -f pdf

    Why Pochta?

    If you are using MJML app you can use MailJet integration to test your emails. However, neither your local images get hosted on MailJet server, nor you get an option to embed images as inline attachments or get to host on your preferred CDN directly.

    Of course, these limitations can be overcome by exporting html manually and/or updating image sources but, if your assets are constantly changing during the development, then this can be a tedious task.

    If you don't have a MailJet account than you're probably relying on Outlook 2010's stationary feature. Outlook is notorious for changing html content and will mess up your layouts in unintended ways.

    Pochta eliminates this limitations and you can have multiple CDN and ESP for your need. Additionally, you can build and export your email with a CDN provider for the e-blast distribution.

    Pochta also has a built in capture feature which can take screenshots of your email for various devices widths and scale factors.

    Below are some email and CDN service providers that are currently supported by Pochta:

    • SendGrid
    • MailJet
    • Amazon SES
    • Gmail
    • Microsoft Exchange


    • AWS S3

    pochta build

    Build html/mjml files and export content into a new directory

      $ pochta build
      -c, --cache=cache  Boolean flag to enable/disable upload cache
      This command generates HTML by parsing MJML/HTML and hosting images to the dedicated cdn provider. If no host selected 
      then, either the images can be embedded as Base64 or can be exported to a directory related to the generated html 
      By default the cache is disabled, meaning on each usage of this command it will try to upload images to the preferred 
      cdn provider. If you want to enable cache use with --cache=true flag.

    See code: src/commands/build.js

    pochta capture

    Capture html/mjml screenshot and save in various format (i.e. png, jpg, pdf)

      work a Chrome browser must be installed on the machine. The default screenshot width is 800px and will export as a 
      The default width can be overwritten with the width flag. This command supports multiple widths and it is helpful if 
      you like to capture different sizes. This is extremely helpful for responsive emails or checking email behaviour on 
      multiple sizes.
      If the dfg (Device Scale Factor) flag is set, the screenshots will result as scaled without loosing the quality. Ideal 
      for mimicking mobile devices screenshots.
