Inky templates and CiviMail
Try out our first beta release of the Inky Compose CiviCRM extension
Inky compose brings the power of Inky (a part of Zurb's Foundation for Emails 2 framework) and Pug to CiviMail, but it is not for everyone. Users that wants a drag and drop interface will be more at home with Mosaico. Inky is worth considering if you are a power user, a designer with technical know how, or a developer.
Once installed Inky replaces the standard CiviMail compose screen with something that looks a bit like a markdown editor. You write your email on the left using Pug and Inky and get a preview of email friendly HTML that is designed to work across all email clients (even Outlook!) on the right.
Have a play around and let me know what you think. The documentation is a bit lacking at the moment but that should be rectified soon. Until then, feel free to get in contact if you have any questions on usage.
Update 2nd November 2017: Inky Compose can now be used alongside 'traditional' CiviCRM mailings and other extensions like Mosaico.
