This small module is inspired by my need for sending templated emails, with the option of attaching an HTML formatted alternative.

Installation

Installing:

easy_install django-email-templates

or:

pip install django-email-templates

Example usage

The following example demonstrates how to send a templated email, in this case the user has submitted a contact form. The module will look for the templates contact.txt and contact.html which will serve as the plaintext and html alternative of the email. The default location of the templates is a directory named email_templates.:

from email_templates import send_templated_mail

context = {
    'name': request.POST['name'],
    'email': request.POST['email'],
    'telephone': request.POST['phone'],
    'message': request.POST['message'],
}

success = send_templated_mail(
    'Contact form submission',
    None,
    [a[1] for a in settings.ADMINS],
    'contact',
    context
)
