Command line utility to send emails of web pages to specified email addresses.
Lets say you have some dashboards showing up-to-date information about, well, anything. But sometimes going to view the dashboards is too much effort and what you want it a regular email report. Or maybe your boss wants a nice weekly or month summary.
> inboxer Send emails of HTML pages to a mailing list based on configuration file usage: inboxer [global options] command [command options] Version: 0.0.1 Global Options: --help - Show this message Commands: help - Shows list of commands or help for one command pdf - Send all emails described in configuration file as PDF send - Send all emails described in configuration file view - Display what is going to happen
So, given a yaml configuration file like so:
- URL: http://example.com/1/ Subject: Example report 1 Recipients: - firstname.lastname@example.org - email@example.com - URL: http://example.com/2/ Subject: Example report 2 Recipients: - firstname.lastname@example.org
We can run inboxer against it:
inboxer send example.yml
You would tend to have separate yaml files for different frequencies (say daily, weekly, monthly) and then setup a cron to trigger those at the relevant times.
The default is to send an html and inline css version of the page via email. As an alternative you can also send a pdf.
inboxer pdf example.yml
inboxer is written in ruby and available as a gem. I'd recommend using bundler but you can also just install with:
gem install inboxer
