Project description

Emailable Python Library Backport

License Python versions Version

This is the backport to Python 2.7 of the Emailable's official python wrapper for the Emailable API.

Documentation

See the Python API docs.

Installation

pip install emailable-backport

Usage

The library needs to be configured with your account's API key which is available in your Emailable Dashboard.

Setup

import emailable

client = emailable.Client('live_...')

Verification

# verify an email address
response = client.verify('evan@emailable.com')
response.state
=> 'deliverable'

# additional parameters are available. see API docs for additional info.
client.verify('evan@emailable.com', smtp=False, accept_all=True, timeout=25)

Slow Email Server Handling

Some email servers are slow to respond. As a result, the timeout may be reached before we are able to complete the verification process. If this happens, the verification will continue in the background on our servers. We recommend sleeping for at least one second and trying your request again. Re-requesting the same verification with the same options will not impact your credit allocation within a 5 minute window.

A slow response will return with a 249 status code.

response = client.verify('slow@example.com')
response.status_code
=> 249
response.message
=> 'Your request is taking longer than normal. Please send your request again.'

Batch Verification

Start a batch

emails = ['evan@emailable.com', 'support@emailable.com', ...]
response = client.batch(emails)
response.id
=> '5cff27400000000000000000'

# you can optionally pass in a callback url that we'll POST to when the
# batch is complete.
response = client.batch(emails, callback_url='https://emailable.com/')

Get the status / results of a batch

To get the status of a batch call batch_status with the batch's id. If your batch is still being processed, you will receive a message along with the current progress of the batch. When a batch is completed, you can access the results in the emails attribute.

response = client.batch_status('5cff27400000000000000000')

# if your batch is still running
response.processed
=> 1
response.total
=> 2
response.message
=> 'Your batch is being processed.'

# if your batch is complete
response.emails
=> [{'email': 'evan@emailable.com', 'state': 'deliverable'...}, {'email': 'support@emailable.com', 'state': 'deliverable'...}...]

# get the counts
response.total_counts
=>{'deliverable': 2, 'undeliverable': 0 ...}
response.reason_counts
=>{'accepted_email': 2, 'rejected_email': 0 ...}

Development

Tests can be run with the following command:
