SendGrid library for Python

Project Description

NEW: Subscribe to email notifications for releases and breaking changes.
     Quickly get started with Docker.

This library allows you to quickly and easily use the SendGrid Web API v3 via Python.

Version 3.X.X+ of this library provides full support for all SendGrid Web API v3 endpoints, including the new v3 /mail/send.

This library represents the beginning of a new path for SendGrid. We want this library to be community driven and SendGrid led. We need your help to realize this goal. To help make sure we are building the right things in the right order, we ask that you create issues and pull requests or simply upvote or comment on existing issues or pull requests.

Please browse the rest of this README for further detail.

We appreciate your continued support, thank you!

Table of Contents

# Installation

Prerequisites

  • Python version 2.6, 2.7, 3.4, 3.5 or 3.6
  • The SendGrid service, starting at the free level

Setup Environment Variables

Update the development environment with your SENDGRID_API_KEY, for example:

echo "export SENDGRID_API_KEY='YOUR_API_KEY'" > sendgrid.env
echo "sendgrid.env" >> .gitignore
source ./sendgrid.env

Install Package

pip install sendgrid

Dependencies

# Quick Start

Hello Email

The following is the minimum needed code to send an email with the /mail/send Helper (here is a full example):

With Mail Helper Class

import sendgrid
import os
from sendgrid.helpers.mail import *

sg = sendgrid.SendGridAPIClient(apikey=os.environ.get('SENDGRID_API_KEY'))
from_email = Email("test@example.com")
to_email = Email("test@example.com")
subject = "Sending with SendGrid is Fun"
content = Content("text/plain", "and easy to do anywhere, even with Python")
mail = Mail(from_email, subject, to_email, content)
response = sg.client.mail.send.post(request_body=mail.get())
print(response.status_code)
print(response.body)
print(response.headers)

The Mail constructor creates a personalization object for you. Here is an example of how to add to it.

Without Mail Helper Class

The following is the minimum needed code to send an email without the /mail/send Helper (here is a full example):

import sendgrid
import os

sg = sendgrid.SendGridAPIClient(apikey=os.environ.get('SENDGRID_API_KEY'))
data = {
  "personalizations": [
    {
      "to": [
        {
          "email": "test@example.com"
        }
      ],
      "subject": "Sending with SendGrid is Fun"
    }
  ],
  "from": {
    "email": "test@example.com"
  },
  "content": [
    {
      "type": "text/plain",
      "value": "and easy to do anywhere, even with Python"
    }
  ]
}
response = sg.client.mail.send.post(request_body=data)
print(response.status_code)
print(response.body)
print(response.headers)

General v3 Web API Usage (With Fluent Interface)

import sendgrid
import os

sg = sendgrid.SendGridAPIClient(apikey=os.environ.get('SENDGRID_API_KEY'))
response = sg.client.suppression.bounces.get()
print(response.status_code)
print(response.body)
print(response.headers)

General v3 Web API Usage (Without Fluent Interface)

   import sendgrid
   import os

   sg = sendgrid.SendGridAPIClient(apikey=os.environ.get('SENDGRID_API_KEY'))
   response = sg.client._("suppression/bounces").get()
   print(response.status_code)
   print(response.body)
   print(response.headers)
