As per subject, I am building a dash web app with dash and I would like to integrate a page where I can send email to user (for exemple user verification code or newsletter)
I have got it to work with “pure” Flask, but I am not to able to integrate flask mail lib into a dash app.
Has anyone already done something similar?
Otherwise I should use other python library to do that, but as dash is built on flask I thought I would make sense to use flask to send email, isn’t it?
If you have a solution working with flask, I believe it should be doable to adopt it to make it work with Dash. Did you try applying you currently solution using
Flask object that serves as the
app = dash.Dash(__name__)
sever = app.server # this is a flask.Flask object
thank you for your quick reply!
I think I have kind of already tried that but I have got 2 problem (which I think they could be easily solved but I do not know how )
firstly, when I try to set the email server into the app.config
app.config['MAIL_SERVER'] = 'smtp server address here'
I get the following error:
AttributeError: (‘Invalid config key. Some settings are only available via the Dash constructor’, ‘MAIL_SERVER’)
Secondly, I would like to add to the body of the email some dash component or dash/boostrap component (cards, buttons, or simply html.P etc…) or even some images, but I am not sure how. I guess this is not a big deal (I would mean that I should learn to code in html ), but it would be nice if I could get to use the dash component into the body of the email message.
I have got it to work with dash by replacing app.config with app.server.config.
However, I am still wondering how I can use dash component into an email, basically how to convert a dash component into html code.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions !
