Upgrade from 1.x to 3.x

Mailchecker public API has been normalized, here are the changes:

  • NodeJS/JavaScript: MailChecker(email) -> MailChecker.isValid(email)
  • PHP: MailChecker($email) -> MailChecker::isValid($email)
  • Python
import MailChecker
m = MailChecker.MailChecker()
if not m.is_valid('bla@example.com'):
  # ...

became:

import MailChecker
if not MailChecker.is_valid('bla@example.com'):
  # ...
