Django Development Email

This was developed as an alternative to having small if checks to send all mail to a development address. We initially wanted to just override the _send method, but since it's marked as private, we decided to copy the class and rewrite the parts I needed. We are certainly open to other ways and methods of implementing this.


pip install django-dev-email

Add the class to your EMAIL_BACKEND setting

EMAIL_BACKEND = 'dev_email.backends.development.EmailBackend'

Add the email address to your settings file
