This is a lite version of Olark's and Intercom's functionality (without the chat part).
It lets you get feedback from users on your site to your email.
And you won't have to rely on another company anymore!
#killyourdependencies
You use it like this. Put this in your PHP page wherever you want the box to show up:
require('feedback-popup.php');
You can also embed it as a JS file:
<script src="/feedback-popup.php?action=feedback-popup-as-js"></script>
Make sure you embed it AFTER you load jQuery.
The JS will POST the message to your server at /feedback-popup.php, make sure the file is
in your root for it to work.
P.S. You need 2 dependencies, jQuery and PHPMailer
P.S. 2. Feel free to replace the PHP with JS etc and take it.

Good stuff, I like the "include as script" feature.
A few minor feedbacks:

  • why is this in a gist and not in a repo? How is people supposed to contribute?
  • the indentation is really, really wide! Oh wait, you use tabs, will skip the flame about space vs tabs :)
  • Can you set the gist language to php, so we have syntax highlighing?
  • Did you know happyfoxchat.com? It's free and I'm using it in my Elasticsearch plugin website

Hey, an important heads-up! On SMTP error it seems to me that it dumps your entire config to the user!

if(!$mail->Send()) {
	echo json_encode(
		array(
			'success'=>false,
			'message'=>$mail->ErrorInfo()." ".json_encode($config)
		)
	);
	exit;
}

Have you got the css for the custom olark form you made ?
