Bambu Mail

A shortcut function for sending template-based emails in HTML and plain-text format, and subscribing users to newsletters

About Bambu Mail

This package allows for the quick and simple sending of emails in both plain-text and HTML format, without needing to specify both. A base HTML template is supplied which can be overridden. Markdown is the expected format for the email body, which means it gets transformed into HTML but left alone for the text-only version.

In addition, Bambu Mail has a simple provider system for newsletter subscriptions, allowing new signups to be automatically added to a mailing list (should they choose to). The only current provider in this package is for Mailchimp, but the base type is easily extensible.

Finally, Bambu Mail provides a Postmark email backend, based on the django-postmark but with a slight bug fix.

About Bambu Tools 2.0

This is part of a toolset called Bambu Tools. It’s being moved from a namespace of bambu to its own ‘root-level’ package, along with all the other tools in the set. If you’re upgrading from a version prior to 2.0, please make sure to update your code to use bambu_mail rather than bambu.mail.


Install the package via Pip:

pip install bambu-mail

Add it to your INSTALLED_APPS list along with Bambu Markup:


Add bambu_mail.urls to your URLconf:

urlpatterns = patterns('',
    url(r'^mail/', include('bambu_mail.urls')),
