django-email-bandit is a Django email backend for hijacking email sending in a test environment.

Project description

Build Status

master:Build Status
develop:Build Status

A Django email backend for hijacking email sending in a staging/test environment. It extends the default SMTP backend to intercept outgoing emails and instead send them to a single email address that you specify. It does not intercept emails going to the site admins (as defined by the ADMINS setting) so it will not interfere with 500 error emails.

You can also configure the hijacked emails to be logged through standard Python logging. Mixin classes are provided to use the same hijack logic for any existing email backend such as django-ses.

Requirements

  • Python 2.6, 2.7 or 3.2+ (Python 3 support required Django >= 1.5)
  • Django >= 1.3

Installation

To install django-email-bandit via pip:

pip install django-email-bandit

Add django-email-bandit to your installed apps:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...
    'bandit',
    ...
)

For your test environment you should enable the backend:

EMAIL_BACKEND = 'bandit.backends.smtp.HijackSMTPBackend'

and set the email which will receive all of the emails:

BANDIT_EMAIL = 'bandit@example.com'
