The other day I wrote about using Postmark for sending out HTML emails. We wanted to have a way to backup our Postmark email templates automatically, so we coded a simple Github Actions workflow which is available on our Github.

There is about 10 minutes of setup for you to do, and it works well enough to backup your Postmark templates and server information on a schedule.

Basically, you need to:

  • Visit our postmark-backup repo on Github.
  • Click “Use this template” to copy the repo to your own account where you can set your repo’s visibility.
  • Make a couple of adjustments to the workflow yaml file.
  • Add some repository secrets to reference your Postmark account and server tokens as appropriate.

Once it’s setup, it’s basically set and forget, and will backup on a schedule, or when you push.
