Learn how to send an email using Vue Email and the Resend Node.js SDK.

1. Install dependencies

Get the resend packages.

pnpm add resend

2. Create an email using Vue

Start by building your email template in a .vue file.

<script lang="ts" setup>
defineProps<{ url: string }>()

  <e-html lang="en">
    <e-button :href="url">
      View on GitHub

Step 3: Convert to HTML and send email

Import the email template you just built, convert into a HTML string, and use the Nodemailer SDK to send it.

// server/api/
import { Resend } from 'resend'
import { useCompiler } from '#vue-email'

const resend = new Resend('re_123456789')

export default defineEventHandler(async (event) => {
  const template = await useCompiler('welcome.vue', {
    props: {
      url: '',

  const options = {
    from: '',
    to: '',
    subject: 'hello world',
    html: template.html,

  await resend.emails.send(options)
  return { message: 'Email sent' }
