How to create email templates using MJML - Step-by-step guide

    Nice. We've used MJML in our SaaS for designing all emails for quite a while now. Makes it so easy to get new layouts done. Pity that the MJML plugin for Atom (my editor of choice) is outdated now though.

    1. 1

      VS Studio dominates the market at the moment, have you had any complaints about compatibility issues around email clients from your customers/subscribers?

      1. 3

        No complaints for the past 4 or so years, and we send out ~800 transactional emails per day to our customer base at the moment. And yes, I might have to make the leap over to VS Code - so many things seem to run better on it than Atom...

    As a non-dev I really liked using this tool, but I wish they would update the templates, I don't think they've changed in the 3 years since I first used it and some of the code has changed that breaks them.

    Thanks for the simple and useful guide.
    Is mjml compatible with outlook? Is there a problem when rendering?

    1. 1

      For basic layouts mostly it's okay. But for the complex layouts (like a grid) you might see some inconsistencies among the different email clients, but still, it's easier to fix compared to coding from scratch

    2. 1

      Basically it depends on what components you're using....here is the full list https://mjml.io/faq#email-clients
