🔥 This query is already included in Gato GraphQL, as Persisted Query “Send email to admin about post”.

This query sends an email to the admin user, notifying of the creation of a new post on the site:

query GetPostAndExportData($postId: ID!) {
post(by: { id: $postId }, status: any) {
content @export(as: "postContent")
title @export(as: "postTitle")
url @export(as: "postURL")

query GetEmailData
@depends(on: "GetPostAndExportData")
adminEmail: optionValue(name: "admin_email")
@export(as: "adminEmail")

emailMessageTemplate: _strConvertMarkdownToHTML(
text: """

There is a [new post on the site]({$postURL}):




emailMessage: _strReplaceMultiple(
search: ["{$postTitle}", "{$postContent}", "{$postURL}"],
replaceWith: [$postTitle, $postContent, $postURL],
in: $__emailMessageTemplate
@export(as: "emailMessage")
