Laravel. Mail Without Views


Here is a little helper class that allows to easily send email with Laravel without using views.

 

class EmailHelper{

    /**
     * Sends an email
     *
     * EmailHelper::sendMail(array(
     *      'From' => 'sender@email.com',
     *      'To' => 'recipient@email.com',
     *      'Cc' => 'cc@email.com',
     *      'Bcc' => 'bcc@email.com',
     *      'Text' => 'Here is the text part',
     *      'Html' => '

Here is the HTML part

',
     *      'Subject' => 'This is a test email at ' . date('Y-m-d H:i:s'),
     * ));
     *

     * @return boolean
