Pinax is an open-source platform built on the Django Web Framework. It is an ecosystem of reusable Django apps, themes, and starter project templates. This collection can be found at http://pinaxproject.com.
This app was developed as part of the Pinax ecosystem but is just a Django app and can be used independently of other Pinax apps.
django-mailer is a reusable Django app for queuing the sending of email.
Simple usage instructions:
INSTALLED_APPS = [ ... "mailer", ... ] EMAIL_BACKEND = "mailer.backend.DbBackend"
Run database migrations to set up the needed database tables.
Then send email in the normal way, as per the Django email docs, and they will be added to the queue.
To actually send the messages on the queue, add this to a cron job file or equivalent:
* * * * * (/path/to/your/python /path/to/your/manage.py send_mail >> ~/cron_mail.log 2>&1) 0,20,40 * * * * (/path/to/your/python /path/to/your/manage.py retry_deferred >> ~/cron_mail_deferred.log 2>&1)
