django-mailman is a simple way to manage one or more mailman mailing lists which are not installed on your server. It uses the webinterface to subscribe or unsubscribe a mailinglist member. Additional you are able to request a list of all subscribed members for a specific mailing list.
django-mailman is tested and works with mailman version 2.1.5. It's possible that mailman also works with the 2.1.x series, but I guess it wouldn't work with the 3.x series which is under development at the moment
django-mailman requires Django 1.3 or later.
First of all, you must add this project to your list of INSTALLED_APPS in settings.py:
INSTALLED_APPS = ( 'django.contrib.admin', 'django.contrib.auth', 'django.contrib.contenttypes', 'django.contrib.sessions', 'django.contrib.sites', ... 'django_mailman', ... )
Run manage.py syncdb. This creates the appropriate tables in your database that are necessary for operation.
from django_mailman.models import List
Create new List
list_name = 'testlist' list_pwd = 'pwd' list_email = 'email@example.com' list_url = 'http://mailman.listdomain.com' list_encoding = 'iso-8859-1' # must match the encoding of your mailman installation list = List(name=list_name, password=list_pwd, email=list_email, main_url=list_url, encoding=list_encoding)
Subscribe new member
list.subscribe('firstname.lastname@example.org', 'first-name', 'last-name')
Show a list of all subscribed members
This method will return a list of all members in the following format: [[u'first-name last-name', email@example.com']]
Admin Moderation Url
If you would like to provide some functionality to log into your mailman moderation area you could request the complete url from your list.
