This article is based on the question asked on StackOverflow.

The approach is to send an Angular component-based dynamically generated templates to users’ email from the Angular SSR project.

Find the example repository at the bottom of this answer.

The steps you need to follow;

  1. Design your templates in an individual routing path that is dedicated to showing only the email templates not your navigation bars, global CSS, etc.

Example:

welcome-email-component.component.ts

welcome-email-component.component.html

You need to specify a route for this component as below, so when the user navigates to the welcome-email/username route it should show only the email template generated component.

  1. Implement Angular SSR to your project from the great Angular SSR guidelines, Server-side rendering (SSR) with Angular Universal.

It’s just two lines of code.

  1. Finally create a server-side API to generate the template from your Angular component and send emails or provide the HTML code of the single component, add the API function in your server.ts as below.

server.ts

Finally when you access /api/send-email/:username, this will generate the welcome mail component and give the HTML body of that, thereafter you can proceed with your email sending function.
