Project description

A reusable Django app, that handles newsletter subscriptions.

Installation

To get the latest stable release from PyPi

pip install django-newsletter-signup

To get the latest commit from GitHub

pip install -e git+git://github.com/bitmazk/django-newsletter-signup.git#egg=newsletter_signup

Add newsletter_signup to your INSTALLED_APPS

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...,
    'newsletter_signup',
)

Add the newsletter_signup URLs to your urls.py

urlpatterns = patterns('',
    ...
    url(r'^newsletter/', include('newsletter_signup.urls')),
)

Don’t forget to migrate your database

./manage.py migrate newsletter_signup

Usage

Just link to the signup page or fetch it’s contents via AJAX into e.g. a bootstrap modal. Once a user fills out the subscription form she gets a verification email, that on click makes the Subscription verified.

Future updates might include mailchimp integration to have everything setup right away. For now you then need to gather the emails from the admin or your own custom management views that you want to send mails to, or alternatively create a custom management command.

Settings

NEWSLETTER_SIGNUP_FROM_EMAIL

To set the from email in the mails, you can either specifically set the NEWSLETTER_SIGNUP_FROM_EMAIL setting or only the FROM_EMAIL setting, which it per default falls back to.

..code-block:: python

NEWSLETTER_SIGNUP_FROM_EMAIL = ‘news@example.com

NEWSLETTER_SIGNUP_SUBSCRIBE_SUBJECT and NEWSLETTER_SIGNUP_UNSUBSCRIBE_SUBJECT

Both of these setting work in the same way as they set the email subject for the subscripe and unsubscribe email. You can either provide a string or a callable object receiving the subscription object as a parameter. See models.py for details. Alternatively you could overwrite those two templates email/unsubscripe_subject.html and email/subscripe_subject.html.

..code-block:: python

SUBSCRIBE_SUBJECT = ‘Your subscription to our newsletter!’

UNSUBSCRIBE_SUBJECT = lambda sub: ‘{0} was unsubscribed.’.format(
sub.email)
