Mail sending Python/CLI interface using markdown or ANSI codes based content

Project description

Simple interface for sending mails. Turns input formats such as Markdown or console outputs using ANSI colors into nice dual plaintext/html messages.

Module usage

import emili

content = """
# this is a title

Read **this** is very _important_!!

"""

emili.sendmail(
    from  = "me@acme.cat",
    to = [ "abe@acme.cat", "bill@acme.cat" ],
    bcc = [ "me@acme.cat" ],
    subject = "About this email"
    md = content,
    attachments = [ 'onefile.pdf' ],
    config = '../config.py',
    )

Right now a config.py file is required containing the configuration options for the SMTP connection in a dictionary named smtp:

smtp=dict(
    host='smtp.acme.cat',
    port='',
    user='roadrunner@acme.cat',
    password='mecmec',
)

Command line usage

usage: emili.py [-h] -f SENDER -s SUBJECT -t recipient [--body TEXT]
                [--bodyfile BODYFILE] [-C CONFIG.PY] [-c CC] [-b BCC]
                [-r REPLYTO] [--format FORMAT] [--style CSSFILE]
                [--template TEMPLATE] [--dump OUTPUTFILE.eml]
                [FILE [FILE ...]]

Sends an email.

positional arguments:
  FILE                  File to attach

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -f SENDER, --from SENDER
                        Message sender ('From:' header)
  -s SUBJECT, --subject SUBJECT
                        Message subject ('Subject:' header)
  -t recipient, --to recipient
                        Message recipient ('To:' header) (multiple)
  --body TEXT           Message body (defaults to stdin)
  --bodyfile BODYFILE   File containing the message body (defaults to stdin)
  -C CONFIG.PY, --config CONFIG.PY
                        Python Module with smtp configuration defined.
  -c CC, --cc CC        Message copy recipient ('CC:' header) (multiple)
  -b BCC, --bcc BCC     Message hidden copy recipient ('BCC:' header)
                        (multiple), other recipients won't see this header

  --format FORMAT       Format for the body. 'md' takes markdown and generates
                        both html and text. 'ansi' does the same, turning ANSI
                        color codes in html or stripping them for text.
  --style CSSFILE       Style sheet for the html output, (multiple)
  --template TEMPLATE   Alternative template for the html body.
  --dump OUTPUTFILE.eml
                        Instead of sending, dump the email into a file
