This is a simple module that retrieves new emails from an IMAP server and creates posts in a WordPress site.
A working IMAP email address and a WordPress with WP Rest API enabled with basic authentication.
As simple as installing any other global node package. Be sure to have npm and node installed and launch:
$ npm install -g email2postwp
The email2postwp is configurable through environment variables. There are several variables available:
|EMAIL2POSTWP_HOST||imap mail host.|
|EMAIL2POSTWP_WPENDPOINT||wordpress rest api endpoint.|
|EMAIL2POSTWP_WPUSERNAME||wordpress basic auth username.|
|EMAIL2POSTWP_WPPASSWORD||wordpress basic auth password.|
|EMAIL2POSTWP_WPPOST_STATUS||new post status (default is draft).|
|EMAIL2POSTWP_WPPOST_CATEGORY_IDS||new post category ids (default is none).|
|EMAIL2POSTWP_WPALLOWED_EMAILS||the list of sender emails that post will be created (default is all).|
Launching from source
If you downloaded the source code of the bot you can run it using NPM with:
$ npm start
Don't forget to configure the environment variables before doing so. Alternatively you can also create a file called
imapsettings.js in the root folder and put your token there (you can use the
imappsettings.js.example file as a reference) and a file called
wpsettings.js in the root folder and put your token there (you can use the
wpsettings.js.example file as a reference).
