Feature #16888: Have an increasing number of subscriptors to our newsletter
Send hybrid HTML + plain text to amnesia-news
From the discussion on how to inform better our users about new features:
Right now people receive something like this:
- Unappealing and probably off-putting for most people
- Incomplete as it doesn't include screenshots for example
- Hard to read and scan due to markdownish syntax and plain text
Sending HTML emails to amnesia-news might increase its popularity. For example, receiving release notes with their screenshots could help letting people know about new features.
rss2email seems to have some options to handle HTML emails:
HTML conversion html-mail True: Send text/html messages when possible. False: Convert HTML to plain text. use-css Use CSS css Optional CSS styling html2text options unicode-snob Use Unicode characters instead of their ascii psuedo-replacements links-after-each-paragraph Put the links after each paragraph instead of at the end. body-width Wrap long lines at position. 0 for no wrapping.
Next step is to test rss2email capabilities.
