Custom Carrier

Carrier is an element which connects the WordPress action with a service. Default Carriers are Email and Webhook.

If you want to connect with API or other delivery service, you should create a custom Carrier.

Carriers very often needs the Recipients, so you may want to add a custom one as well.

Carrier class

use BracketSpace\Notification\Interfaces\Triggerable;
use BracketSpace\Notification\Abstracts;
use BracketSpace\Notification\Defaults\Field;
​
/**
* ExampleCarrier Carrier
*/
class ExampleCarrier extends Abstracts\Carrier {
​
/**
* Carrier icon, optional
*
* @var string SVG
*/
public $icon = '<svg>...</svg>';
​
/**
* Carrier constructor
*/
public function __construct() {
// Provide the slug and translatable name.
parent::__construct( 'example-carrier', __( 'Example Carrier', 'textdomain' ) );
}
​
/**
* Used to register Carrier form fields
* Uses $this->add_form_field();
*
* @return void
*/
public function form_fields() {
​
$this->add_form_field( new Field\InputField( [
'label' => __( 'Example field', 'notification' ),
'name' => 'fieldslug',
] ) );
​
// Special field which renders all Carrier's recipients.
$this->add_form_field( new Field\RecipientsField( [
'carrier' => $this->get_slug(),
] ) );
​
}
​
/**
* Sends the notification
*
* @param Triggerable $trigger trigger object.
* @return void
*/
public function send( Triggerable $trigger ) {
// Data contains the user data with rendered Merge Tags.
$data = $this->data;
​
// Parsed recipients are also available.
$data['parsed_recipients'];
​
// This is where you should connect with your service to send out the Notifiation.
}
​
}

Registering the Carrier

To get the Carrier registered you must create an instance of your class and pass it to the Notification plugin. The best action to do that is notification/elements

add_action( 'notification/elements', function() {
notification_register_carrier( new ExampleCarrier() );
} );
