CodeIgniter Spark for SendGrid’s Newsletter API

February 16, 2012

I’ve submitted my first CodeIgniter library to GetSparks.org in an effort to start giving back to the community that has provided us with so many great tools. This library is a wrapper to the SendGrid Newsletter API and supports all of their provided methods.

What is SendGrid?

SendGrid is a easy-to-use email delivery service similar to Postmark or Amazon’s SES. They provide a great way to send transactional emails using CodeIgniter’s core email library and SMTP. However, they also offer a newsletter service at no additional cost which supports recipient lists and send scheduling.

Where Can I Get It?

Go grab the library on GetSparks or download it on GitHub.
