Get started
===========

Installing
----------
::

pip install django-template-mail

Configure your mail backend
---------------------------

django-template-mail ships with same backends as Django (https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/topics/email/#email-backends). Just replace **django.core.mail** by **templatemail** ::

EMAIL_BACKEND = 'templatemail.backends.smtp.EmailBackend'

Convert HTML into plain text
----------------------------

By default, django-template-backend use a minimalist process to convert HTML into plain text. I suggest you to use **html2text** (https://github.com/aaronsw/html2text) ::

EMAIL_HTML2TEXT = 'html2text.html2text'

You can also write your own method and use it ::

EMAIL_HTML2TEXT = 'your.module.yourhtml2textmethod'

Sending emails
==============

To send email with django-template-mail you simply should use the method described in the Django documentation (https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/topics/email/) and replacing the **message** attribute as a tuple **('directory_template/template.html', {'key': 'value'}, context_instance)** ::

from django.core.mail import send_mail
send_mail(
'Welcome',
(
'mail/welcome.html',
{
'username': request.user.username,
'full_name': request.user.get_full_name(),
'signup_date': request.user.date_joined
}
),
'from@example.com',
['to@example.com'],
fail_silently=False
)

django-template-mail looked in django template directories/loaders ::

<p>Hi {{full_name}},</p>
<p>
You just signed up using:
<ul>
<li>username: {{username}}</li>
<li>join date: {{signup_date}}</li>
</ul>
</p>
<p>Thanks!</p>
