Unwrapping Our New NodeJS API Wrapper
15 Sep 2015
When Mailjet first came to be, our team set out to build a fast and scalable platform for developers. In 2010, after seeing many companies struggle to set up transactional email in-house, co-founders Julien Tartarin and Wilfried Durand wanted to mutualize email sending to make it easy for anyone to get started within minutes. We’ve come a long way since then, with a full library of API features to optimize your transactional email.
Build more, faster on NodeJS
Our new wrapper gives you the freedom to use callbacks or EventEmitters, store your API calls so you can reuse your previous requests, and learn more about the Mailjet API. We’ve coded the wrapper using the soon-to-be released EcmaScript 2015 specifications, including native Promises, string templating and more.
Made for everyone
I recently joined Mailjet as a Developer Evangelist, so I’m especially familiar with learning and navigating my way through the API for the first time. While I was able to pick it up in barely no time, when it came to coding the NodeJS wrapper, my goal was to make it even easier for anyone to pick up and use the Mailjet API. The code is light and focuses on developer experience and readability. It takes little effort to decrypt and the internal process is intuitive. The wrapper code is designed to be flexible for everyone, whether you prefer to use callbacks or Promises:

Like the rest of our Mailjet wrapper library, the NodeJS code is MIT licensed. We’ll be releasing use cases over the next few weeks and months – so keep your eyes peeled!
Last but not least, we know that we can’t build a great product without the help of you – our developer community. That’s why we love feedback and code contributions. Whether you’re just starting out at coding, or are a seasoned developer that’s been in this business for years, as long as you document your features, we will send you feedback and consider merging your code with the official repository!
