A full featured email status notifier for python
A module for quickly sending email status and alerts from python programs
This script was created to notify me when a job was completed (and sometimes include an exit status and relevant results)
Notipy is compatible with both python2 and python3
pip install notipymail
git clone https://github.com/nbryans/notipymail.git python setup.py sdist # Move dist\*.zip to desired location. Extract zip cd Notipy-X.X python setup.py install
On First Run
In a python session
import notipymail.notipy as notipy notipy.updateSendDetails('yourEmail@emailProvider.com', 'yourPassword', 'smtp.emailProvider.com', '587')
This will create file senddetails.dat containing the following contents:
email:email@emailProvider.com password:yourPassword server:smtp.emailProvider.com port:587
Optionally, you can create this file manually.
Sending Emails with Notipy:
import notipymail.notipy as notipy notipy.sendMail("email@example.com", "This is a message")
Use notipy.sendMailAsync(..) to send mail in the background asynchronously.
Send status are logged in notipy.log. The log file can be changed in the #Constants section of notipy.py
To query the log through python, use notipy.queryLog(5) where 5 specifies the number of log entries (most recent to least) to retrieve. This operation may be slow for large logs.
In sendMail and sendMailAsync, there is an optional third parameter where you can specify a subject. i.e. notipy.sendMail("firstname.lastname@example.org", "This is the message", "Custom Subject"). The default subject is “Notipy Automail”
