Tool to send messages via Sendgrid/Slack

Project description

Tool to send messages via Sendgrid/Slack

PyPI package: ppmail

If you spot any problems or have any improvement ideas then feel free to open an issue and I will be glad to look into it for you.


A recommended way of installing the tool is pip install.

Once installed, a command line tool ppmail should be available in your system’s PATH.

pip install

The tool is available in PyPI and can be installed using pip:

$ pip install --user ppmail
$ ppmail --help


By default, the tool reads its configuration from ~/.config/ppmail file (the location can be overridden by setting environment variable XDG_CONFIG_HOME). If the config file (or directory) does not exist then it will be automatically created and populated with sample config upon the next run.

Usage - Help

$ ppmail --help
usage: ppmail [--version] [--help] [--debug] [--verbose] [-S] [-f SENDER] -t
              RECIPIENTS [RECIPIENTS ...] [-c CC [CC ...]] [-s SUBJECT] [-H]
              [-F FONT_SIZE]
