Here we'll show you how to use our Python SDK to send an email with the Gmail API.
3You'll also need a Gmail account, which you can create here. To authenticate with Google, you'll want to enable 2-Step Verification and generate an App Password for Temboo.
4Sign in to your Google Account settings page by clicking on your name or picture in the upper right corner of the screen and then clicking Account.
5Scroll down to the "Signing in" box.
6Click 2-Step Verification. This will bring you to the 2-Step Verification settings page.
7You will then see a step-by-step guide which will guide you through the setup process.
8After you've enabled 2-Step Verification, you'll be prompted to create an App Password.
9In the Select app dropdown menu, choose "Other", and give this app a name (e.g., TembooApp).
10Click "Generate". You'll be given a 16-digit passcode that can be used to access your Google Account from Temboo.
Note: If you wish to authenticate with OAuth credentials, you should use the Google > Gmailv2 Choreos.
11 Go to the Google > Gmail > SendEmail Choreo in our Library. Select Python from the drop down menu at the top of the page.
12Fill in your Gmail username (email address) and App-specific password, then hit the Save Profile button to save a Profile for your Gmail account. Now you can reuse your Gmail authentication details on any of our Gmail Choreos and it will also make your Python code simpler and more secure.
13Now let's test the Google > Gmail > SendEmail Choreo directly from our website. Insert your new Profile and fill in the rest of the required inputs.
14 Click Generate Code and you'll see the value "true" for the Success output in the Output section. Assuming you emailed yourself, you can go to your inbox and see the email appear!
15To send an email from your Python code, copy the generated code from your browser directly into a new .py file and try running it there. Your code should look something like the script below.
from temboo.Library.Google.Gmail import SendEmail from temboo.core.session import TembooSession # Create a session with your Temboo account details session = TembooSession('ACCOUNT_NAME', 'APP_NAME', 'APP_KEY') # Instantiate the Choreo sendEmailChoreo = SendEmail(session) # Get an InputSet object for the Choreo sendEmailInputs = sendEmailChoreo.new_input_set() # Set Profile to use for execution sendEmailInputs.set_credential('GmailProfile') # Set the Choreo inputs sendEmailInputs.set_MessageBody("Test from Temboo") sendEmailInputs.set_Subject("Hello world!") sendEmailInputs.set_FromAddress("firstname.lastname@example.org") sendEmailInputs.set_ToAddress("email@example.com") # Execute the Choreo sendEmailResults = sendEmailChoreo.execute_with_results(sendEmailInputs) # Print the Choreo outputs print("Success: " + sendEmailResults.get_Success())
16Run the code and check your inbox - your email should be waiting.
We're all finished! Now your Python application is sending email via your Gmail account. Check out what else you can do with our Python SDK by exploring the 2000+ Choreos in our Library.
Once you've got your code up and running, you're ready to move on and do more. From monitoring your running applications, to moving your generated Temboo code to your preferred development environment and sharing it with colleagues, collaborators and friends - we've got you covered.
