Detroit Email Tool

Website / Report Issue / Development

Build Status Gem Version     Flattr Me


The Email tool is used to send out project announcements to a set of email addresses.

By default it generates a release announcement based on a projects metadata. Release announcements can be customized via parts, including a project's README file.

Fully custom messages can also be sent by setting the message field, and or by using a message file.

Email account settings default to environment variables so they need not be set independently for every project.

@server    ENV['EMAIL_SERVER']
@from      ENV['EMAIL_FROM']
@password  ENV['EMAIL_PASSWORD']
@port      ENV['EMAIL_PORT']
@domain    ENV['EMAIL_DOMAIN']
@login     ENV['EMAIL_LOGIN']
@secure    ENV['EMAIL_SECURE']


Using RubyGems

$ gem install detroit-email
