[nodebb-plugin-emailer-local] Local email plugin


  • @psychobunny

    Yep, I agree. Since it's fundamental to the running of a website, it should be core. If somebody does not want to use a local mail service, they she/he can use a 3rd-party service by installing a plugin.


  • I think it can stay as a plugin but come bundled like some of the others come. Nothing wrong with that.

    I really pushed the issue for a local smtp mailer being in the core, but was rejected for whatever reason. It shouldn't be a plugin at all. Out of all of the forums I've used, the local mailer was always built in the core for ease of use and keeps things simple. Can someone explain to me further what advantage making the local mailer would be? I don't seem to understand.

    Funny thing is, all this time I've been using NodeBB, I STILL have no mail server connected with it because I'm confused here. From core to plugin, and now we have this... 😐


  • @Chris

    Isn't that just giving site admins one more task to do, on top of countless others that they have on their hands.


  • @planner No? It would be bundled with NodeBB - like the current themes are bundled and the @mentions plugin, the markdown plugin, etc.

    I really pushed the issue ... but was rejected for whatever reason.

    This never happens @NodeBB - if anybody ever feels like their ideas are being stifled you message me and I'll deal with it. 🙂 (or not, coz ima lazy)

    EDIT: no seriously. 🙂

    EDIT2: I agree that this plugin could be bundled as default just like markdown and mentions. I didn't think about that earlier, but for me personally I feel like it should be core. So - Since @BarveyHirdman wrote this, imo its totally up to him as to what direction he wishes to take with the code he wrote 🙂 If he keeps it as a plugin, expect this as bundled in with core imo (pending internal discussion) in the upcoming versions 🙂

    emailer-local can be bundled, if you really feel strongly about it @trevor. I just really hate using local mailers because the chance is so high your mail will end up in a spam bin, but I will admit that people have different feelings on the matter.

    Plus, local mailers are a pain in the ASS to set up. 😦


  • Plus, local mailers are a pain in the ASS to set up.

    You can say that again.

    But on this matter, we have two good options - core or bundled plugin. Either one will work.

  • GNU/Linux Admin

    I prefer bundled, but I am a bit anal like that... to know that all mailer functionality is a plugin... makes me feel good.


  • any plan to update this for v0.4.0? actually does not work

  • Admin

    @barveyhirdman hasn't been online in 11 days 😞 time to find his email and start spamming 👿


  • Hello, any news from @BarveyHirdman? Thanks a lot for your fix by the way!
    I started to use your fork in the meantime:
    npm install git://github.com/psychobunny/nodebb-plugin-emailer-local
    works well with v0.4.1.!

  • Admin

    no worries! glad it's working for you 🙂

    @psychobunny, if I use the above command to install, no need for Mandrill plugin, right ?

    Yup, that's right.

    Hi, all, and congrats to the co-founders for this 'never seen a such in real time reactiv forum'...

    I'm a french geek, and i've just discovered lots of tools (then new for me...)

    And nodeJS was my choice to developp an apply... So I study all what I find ! Lol

    And, link after link, I found nodeBB... And I'm completly sidered.

    It'a a fabulous project 🙂 ! BRAVOS !

    So, I begin to read the forum... And found this plugin (@BarveyHirdman) and install it !
    But, i read after the end of the thread... And I saw the 'psychobunny 's update'... Lol.

    To remove the fisrt original version, is that enough to remove the corresponding folder in this named 'nodes_modules' or it's necessary to do something else ?

    To soon,

    Lionel.
    PS: For the moment, I only install nBB on local server (xamp/Linux)... And after some observations, one of my first goals is to do some changes for some words they arn't translated at all...
    Can you help me to find (if exists) a francophon community for nBB ?

  • GNU/Linux Admin

    @Lionel-Adel-Cote I don't believe there is a francophone community for NodeBB yet, though you're welcome to start one 🙂 All we ask is that you don't use the term "NodeBB" in the URL or site title. NBB (and other variants) are fine.

    To uninstall a plugin, just run npm remove nodebb-plugin-emailer-local. Have you tried the nodemailer plugin instead?

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    After a short check, the plugin doesn't seems to work. The 'send' method isn't called. I'm trying to fix this issue.

    Edit: seems to be the hook "action:mail.send" not fired.
    Edit2: Does the "action:mail.send" hook fired on reply posted ?

  • Admin

    Hey @Mizore, the original author hasn't updated his plugin in a while (hope he's well and just busy) - have a look at my fork - the last time I checked it was working with at least 0.4.1

    npm install git://github.com/psychobunny/nodebb-plugin-emailer-local
    

  • Hi @psychobunny,
    would you add an option to enable SSL encryption?
    Some SMTP server only support SSL connection.
    Many thanks!
