    BuildStatus npm version Email Notifications Badge

    NEW: Subscribe to email notifications for releases and breaking changes.

    This library allows you to quickly and easily use the SendGrid Web API v3 via Node.js.

    Version 3.X.X+ of this library provides full support for all SendGrid Web API v3 endpoints, including the new v3 /mail/send.

    This library represents the beginning of a new path for SendGrid. We want this library to be community driven and SendGrid led. We need your help to realize this goal. To help make sure we are building the right things in the right order, we ask that you create issues and pull requests or simply upvote or comment on existing issues or pull requests.

    Please browse the rest of this README for further detail.

    We appreciate your continued support, thank you!

    Installation

    Prerequisites

    • Node.js version 4, 6 or 7
    • The SendGrid service, starting at the free level

    Setup Environment Variables

    Update the development environment with your SENDGRID_API_KEY, for example:

    echo "export SENDGRID_API_KEY='YOUR_API_KEY'" > sendgrid.env
    echo "sendgrid.env" >> .gitignore
    source ./sendgrid.env

    Install Package

    npm install --save sendgrid

    Dependencies

    Quick Start

    Hello Email

    The following is the minimum needed code to send an email with the /mail/send Helper (here is a full example):

    With Mail Helper Class

    var helper = require('sendgrid').mail;
    var fromEmail = new helper.Email('test@example.com');
    var toEmail = new helper.Email('test@example.com');
    var subject = 'Sending with SendGrid is Fun';
    var content = new helper.Content('text/plain', 'and easy to do anywhere, even with Node.js');
    var mail = new helper.Mail(fromEmail, subject, toEmail, content);
     
    var sg = require('sendgrid')(process.env.SENDGRID_API_KEY);
    var request = sg.emptyRequest({
      method: 'POST',
      path: '/v3/mail/send',
      body: mail.toJSON()
    });
     
    sg.API(request, function (error, response) {
      if (error) {
        console.log('Error response received');
      }
      console.log(response.statusCode);
      console.log(response.body);
      console.log(response.headers);
    });

    The Mail constructor creates a personalization object for you. Here is an example of how to add to it.

    Without Mail Helper Class

    The following is the minimum needed code to send an email without the /mail/send Helper (here is a full example):

    var sg = require('sendgrid')(process.env.SENDGRID_API_KEY);
    var request = sg.emptyRequest({
      method: 'POST',
      path: '/v3/mail/send',
      body: {
        personalizations: [
          {
            to: [
              {
                email: 'test@example.com'
              }
            ],
            subject: 'Sending with SendGrid is Fun'
          }
        ],
        from: {
          email: 'test@example.com'
        },
        content: [
          {
            type: 'text/plain',
            value: 'and easy to do anywhere, even with Node.js'
          }
        ]
      }
    });
     
    // With promise
    sg.API(request)
      .then(function (response) {
        console.log(response.statusCode);
        console.log(response.body);
        console.log(response.headers);
      })
      .catch(function (error) {
        // error is an instance of SendGridError
        // The full response is attached to error.response
        console.log(error.response.statusCode);
      });
     
    // With callback
    sg.API(request, function (error, response) {
      if (error) {
        console.log('Error response received');
      }
      console.log(response.statusCode);
      console.log(response.body);
      console.log(response.headers);
    });

    General v3 Web API Usage

    var sg = require('sendgrid')(process.env.SENDGRID_API_KEY);
     
    // GET Collection
    var request = sg.emptyRequest({
      method: 'GET',
      path: '/v3/api_keys'
    });
     
    // With promise
    sg.API(request)
      .then(function (response) {
        console.log(response.statusCode);
        console.log(response.body);
        console.log(response.headers);
      })
      .catch(function (error) {
        // error is an instance of SendGridError
        // The full response is attached to error.response
        console.log(error.response.statusCode);
      });
     
    // With callback
    sg.API(request, function (error, response) {
      if (error) {
        console.log('Error response received');
      }
      console.log(response.statusCode);
      console.log(response.body);
