Django library for separating the message content from transmission method

# Installation

1. `pip install django-herald`
2. Add `herald` to `INSTALLED_APPS`.
3. Add herald's URLS:

if settings.DEBUG:
urlpatterns = [
url(r'^herald/', include('herald.urls')),
] + urlpatterns

# Usage

1. Create a `` file in any django app. This is where your notification classes will live. Add a class like this:

from herald import registry
from herald.base import EmailNotification

class WelcomeEmail(EmailNotification): # extend from EmailNotification for emails
template_name = 'welcome_email' # name of template, without extension
subject = 'Welcome' # subject of email

def __init__(self, user): # optionally customize the initialization
self.context = {'user': user} # set context for the template rendering
self.to_emails = [] # set list of emails to send to

def get_demo_args(): # define a static method to return list of args needed to initialize class for testing
from users.models import User
return [User.objects.order_by('?')[0]]

registry.register(WelcomeEmail) # finally, register your notification class

2. Create templates for rendering the email using this file structure:


3. Test how your email looks by navigating to `/herald/`.

4. Send your email wherever you need in your code:


5. View the sent emails in django admin and even be able to resend it.
