Application for switching from Django plain-text emails to html emails with 2 bodies: html and plain-text, generated automatically from html

Project description

# Django Email HTML

[![Build Status](](

This application can be used for quickly switching all emails from plain-text to html. For using it you need to do 2 steps:

  • add email_html to INSTALLED_APPS higher, then other third-party applications;
  • change all email templates to new html version;

Application substitutes built-in send_mail function by new smart send_mail function.


send_mail(subject, message, from_email, recipient_list, fail_silently=False, auth_user=None, auth_password=None, connection=None)


send_mail(subject, message, from_email=None, recipient_list=None, fail_silently=False, auth_user=None, auth_password=None, connection=None)

## Few new features:

  • Message attribute using for html or plain-test message body. If it contains html, plain-text body will generated automatically based on html version;
  • from_email attribute is not required. By default it will set from settings.DEFAULT_FROM_EMAIL;
  • Depending on settings.EMAIL_ADMIN_DUPLICATE all copies of email messages also sending to ADMIN emails (using bcc header);

New function can be used:

send_mail(subj, html, recipient_list=emails)

## Requirements:

  • beautifulsoup4
  • w3m (for generating plain-text from html)

## Important notes:

  • Place email_html application in INSTALLED_APPS before all other applications, which sending emails you need to make html based by default;
  • Html body must contains <html> tag, otherwise function would think this is a plain-text body;
