Email notifications for Sloth CI apps

Project description

Send email notifications when builds complete or fail.

Executing actions of an app is called *build*. A build is considered *completed* if all its actions were completed. If some actions were completed and some failed, it's a *partially completed*; if all actions fail, the build *failed*.

This extension sends you emails via SMTP when your builds complete (fully or partially) or fail; just pick the desired notification level, list the recepient emails, and enter your SMTP credentials. Optionally, you can set the subject for each notifcation level.

.. warning::

This extension uses `SMTPHandler <>`__ from logging.handlers. SMTPHandler doesn't work with GMail because it creates an smtplib.SMTP object to connect to the host, whereas GMail requires smtplib.SMTP_SSL. works fine.
