At Rackspace we've been putting a lot of work into SDKs lately. Recently the team at Mailgun joined the SDK club and released an officially supported SDK for PHP. They are also working on SDKs for additional languages like C#, Ruby and Python which will be coming soon.
In addition to providing a way to interact with the Mailgun API, the PHP SDK has a few really cool utilities that make it way easier to do some common, but complex tasks.
As many of you know, Rackspace acquired the transactional email provider Mailgun almost a year ago. Mailgun has a super easy-to-use API for sending, receiving and tracking on your application emails (they also support SMTP is that's your thing). We've blogged about Mailgun a bunch this year, and recently Mailgun was integrated into the Rackspace cloud control panel making it that much easier to integrate Mailgun into your app (and get 50,000 free emails per month in the process). The Mailgunners just released a new feature that we are really excited about: email validation for web forms. So today, we're reblogging their post announcing the new feature which is completely free for Rackspace and Mailgun customers. Read on, and remember that you can enable your Mailgun account directly through the Cloud Control Panel!
One of my favorite services here at Rackspace is Mailgun, a set of APIs that allow you to send email and manage mailing lists via a REST API. Coming back from a recent trip to San Antonio I decided that I would add an Objective-C interface to send email via Mailgun using my own iOS interface instead of using Apple's
MFMailComposeViewController. This library is now open sourced on Github and available via Cocoapods.
The team over at Mailgun just posted a Python tutorial written by Mailgun customer Paul Finn about how to use Python and the Mailgun API to upload large images to Cloud Files. The use case for the post is uploading photos from your phone, but the same process could be used anytime to want to parse an email attachment and store it in the cloud. You can check out the full Mailgun and python tutorial at the Mailgun blog, but we have the highlights here. --Hart
The team over at Mailgun just posted a case study about how the Rackspace Cloud Monitoring team successfully migrated their email alerts to the Mailgun email automation platform. It's a really interesting read that is as much about how to plan for and deploy 3rd party tools in a production application as it is about using Mailgun to automate and monitor email alerts.
The guys over at Mailgun just posted an overview of how to use Mailgun to power email notifications from your Capistrano recipes. We've got a lot of customers using Capistrano to automate their big web deployments, so we thought we'd share a summary. You can read the full post on the Mailgun blog.
In case you didn't hear, Rackspace recently acquired Mailgun, a YCombinator startup that makes it really easy to integrate email into your application. Mailgun does the simple things like sending password confirmations and shipping notifications, but it also makes it A LOT easier to build some really good stuff.
Figuring out how to make email work with the cloud is one of the biggest questions that we get at Rackspace, so we're publishing some code samples that show you how to build some really cool things with Mailgun. Mailgun has a free plan that will let you try all these things and send up to 200 emails per day for free. Then they've got plans starting at only $20 a month. So, onto the cool stuff!
Rackspace has acquired Mailgun. Mailgun simplifies email integration into websites and applications. Developers can easily use their powerful set of APIs to send, receive, and track email effortlessly – without managing an email server or becoming an expert in email setup, operations and deliverability. Mailgun is built for developers. It has server-side MIME assembly, which means that no libraries are required. The service allows you to receive event notifications via a webhook, and everything is priced to scale as you scale.
Our cloud is open. We believe our company should be too. One of our Core Values at Rackspace is full disclosure and transparency, and we want to build a community for our developers that is open, transparent and helps them build amazing applications on the open cloud.
