E-mails in Django. Classy.
Django makes it really easy to send simple e-mail messages. But e-mails sometimes gets really complicated and un-DRY. That’s where ClassyMail steps in.
Django-ClassyMail is a library for building e-mail messages in a fashion similar to django’s class based views.
You can create mixins, override attributes with keyword arguments and there’s a lot of builtin functionality. Just like class based views.
Django-ClassyMail will handle css inlining, timezone, language and urls for you.
Read the docs for more info:
And here’s an example:
class UserMixin(ClassyMail): """ Sets language and timezone according to user preferences, adds "user" to template context and sets recipient to user's email address. """ user = None def get_timezone(self): return self.user.get_profile().timezone def get_language(self): return self.user.get_profile().language def get_to(self): return [self.user.email] def get_context_data(self): data = super(UserMixin, self).get_context_data() data['user'] = self.user return data class WelcomeEmail(UserMixin, ClassyMail): html_template_name = 'emails/welcome.html' text_template_name = 'emails/welcome.txt' def get_subject(self): return _("Welcome %s! Thanks for joining us!") % self.user.first_name
