extensions/SparkPost/ folder so that composer can pick up and install the required SparkPost dependencies for the extension to run smoothly.
You need to have an account on
https://www.sparkpost.com and a valid API key in order to successfully send emails via SparkPost using this extension. Getting an API key is really easy, just create an account and follow the steps, the last step will give away the API key plus, don't forget to verify your email (account after creation). See here for more information.
Security Warning: Do not paste your SparkPost keys directly in your
SparkPost/extension.jsonas this will be a vulnerability making someone else to be able to use your account to send emails or perform other bad stuff.
With a valid API Key, configure your API key in LocalSettings.php, plus this also requires that you've properly configured a sending domain using your SparkPost account (this is SparkPost specific):
$wgSparkPostAPIKey = "YOUR_API_KEY_HERE";
In addition to the API key config variable, this extension provides 3 more config variables used in setting various options when using the Spark Post API to distribute emails such as:
$wgSparkPostTransactional. These variables are set to "true" for default behavior with spark post.
Test your settings edit
Special:EmailUser and send an email to your own address to verify that the extension is working. You'll receive an email from the address you inputed and check to see if it's sent via the SparkPost API.
