Developer Stories Tutorial: Create and Test Your HTML Email Template

Tutorial: Create and Test Your HTML Email Template

Hello! I would like to share to all of you about how to create HTML Email template and test it. For example, we can include image or table inside our email content to be more interactive. Let me show a few examples:

Example: Email template from Gcalendar, Traveloka, and AWS

How to Create Email Verification with HTML

Let’s get started! We will create a simple file HTML template for Email Verification after user finished the registration, so that user can confirm their email address. The email will show the logo, user name, welcome message, link for verification, and copyright just like image below.

Example: Email Verification Template

I have already uploaded the template file in my GitHub, if you need reference.

Tips when You Create the Template

  1. If you want to insert image, use link to load it since base64 image is not supported yet.
  2. For more organized look, you can use table. Table is good for your template to make it more responsive.
  3. You can handle the screen size (mobile/tablet/laptop) in your CSS style and load your template in mobile mode to make sure that your template is still in a good form.
  4. Last but not least, you can try to test your template by using HTML Inserter Chrome Extension. Try to send new email from Gmail with HTML Inserter and paste your HTML template. See the result in mobile too to see the difference. This extension helps a lot before you finally set the template and try to test it from your server app.
