Emails

Parcel is designed around the concept of email. When you send an email, it is made up of headers and MIME parts - HTML, plaintext, and maybe AMP for Email as well.

Parcel mirrors this. Each email in Parcel supports editing all three parts in a single file.

HTML

HTML is what you think of when you think email - it is the content most of your recipients will see. You'll likely spend most of your time editing HTML.

Text

The text part should contain a plaintext version of your email. When you switch to the Text tab, the preview will change from a preview of the HTML to a preview of the text. You don't have to retype your content yourself - Parcel can automatically generate the text part from your HTML.

Generate text

You can click the Generate Text button at any time, and can edit the text manually afterwards. The Generate Text feature will overwrite any text content in the Text tab - any custom changes you've made will be lost.

AMP

AMP is a way to give your email superpowers. With it you can load dynamic content, build entire forms, or even include a checkout experience. When you switch to the AMP tab, the preview will change from a preview of the HTML to a preview of the AMP. You don't have to retype your content yourself - Parcel can automatically generate the AMP part from your HTML.

Generate AMP

You can click the Generate AMP button at any time, and can edit the AMP manually afterwards. The Generate AMP feature will overwrite any content in the AMP tab - any custom changes you've made will be lost.
