Project description

Purpose

The content has to be written in Markdown syntax. The text part of the e-mail will be filled verbatim; the html part will be a converted HTML from the Markdown content.

E-mail rendering for the user (HTML part)

Install

$ pip install markdownmail

Basic Usage

import markdownmail

CONTENT = u"""
SPAMS AND EGGS
==============

This is a demo with a list:

1. Spam
2. Second spam
3. ...and eggs
"""

email = markdownmail.MarkdownMail(
    from_addr=u'alice@example.org',
    to_addr=u'bob@example.org',
    subject=u'MarkdownMail demo',
    content=CONTENT
)

email.send('localhost')

Content must be unicode.

More infos

Additional informations are addable:

email = markdownmail.MarkdownMail(
    from_addr=(u'alice@example.org', u'Alice'),
    to_addr=(u'bob@example.org', u'Bob'),
    subject=u'MarkdownMail demo',
    content=CONTENT
)

The from_addr and to_addr parameters are the same as Enveloppe library.

Change SMTP port:

email.send("example.org", port=3325)

Style

A default CSS is automatically added to the e-mail. It includes a font sans serif and minor improvements.

To override the default CSS, pass a string including the style to the css optional parameter of MardownMail:

import markdownmail

email = markdownmail.MarkdownMail(
    from_addr=u'alice@example.org',
    to_addr=u'bob@example.org',
    subject=u'MarkdownMail demo',
    content="CONTENT",
    css="font-family:monospace; color:green;"
)

Run tests

Tox is automatically installed in virtualenvs before executing the tests. Execute them with:

$ python setup.py test

Disable sending e-mails in your tests

The e-mail is not send if the parameter passed to send() method is an instance of NullServer.

email = markdownmail.MarkdownMail(
    #params
)

email.send(markdownmail.NullServer())

Assert about e-mails in your tests

Subclassing NullServer allows to provide a custom behaviour in the check() method:

class MyServer(markdownmail.NullServer):
    def check(self, email):
        assert u'bob@example.org' == email.to_addr[0]

email.send(MyServer())
