I am currently working on a project that will help streamline my workflow at work. I am responsible for delivering email marketing communication from many different stakeholders. This ends up in a volley of emails with various changes from different stakeholders.
I thought a simpler solution would have the stakeholders put their copy into an app that would preview the email for them.
I recently went through Learn Python the Hard Way and a (quick) run through of Tango with Django. So I thought I would dive in an build this application.
With a help of a friend, I put some models together of the app and a small workflow.
Here is what I’ve accomplished so far:
Templates with the help of Bootstrap
User Registration using django-registration
Email sends with Mandrill
Next I’ll be tackling form processing and introducing a WYSIWG in order to complete the HTML for an email.
Any tips or suggestions are welcome 🙂
