rohberg.mailin

The service rohberg.mailin listens to incoming mails of defined mail accounts and sends a request to a Plone website. This creates content in Plone.

Use cases

  • Create instant content from mobile and work on later on desktop
  • Display newsletters. Do it searchable.
  • Mail reports, bills, snapshots, etc. as attachments to Plone.

Download code to arbitrary location and install with

yarn install

configure with config.env

and start with

yarn mailin

Configuration is made in config.env. See an example configuration at config.env.example

IMAP_USER = foo@gmail.com
IMAP_PASS = abc
IMAP_HOST = imap.gmail.com
IMAP_PORT = 993
WEBHOOK_TARGET = 'http://code.example.com'
PLONE_LOGIN = 'admin'
PLONE_PASSWORD = 'secret'
PLONE_CONTENTTYPE = 'mycontenttype'
ALLOWED_SENDERS = 'foo@gmail.com,bar@gmail.com'

Plone configuration

  1. plone.restapi is installed.
  2. User PLONE_LOGIN has write access to WEBHOOK_TARGET for PLONE_CONTENTTYPE.

Dependencies:

mail-notifier https://www.npmjs.com/package/mail-notifier

In fact there is no dependency on Plone. config.env defines the target. This target can be anything.

Content Tagging

Categorize your content with tags by appending them to the mail subject.
Example subject of Mail: "my note #Python #Plone"
