Is it possible to add attachments to JJupin - SIL custom email (using sendHtmlEmail)?

I see that it is possible with a text email but can not attach to HTML email.

Also, to take this even further; Is it possible to display a screenshot (embedded image) in an HTML email via JJupin-SIL script?

Sure, you can send an email with an attachment like this:

sendHtmlEmail("person@email", "person@email", cc, "Email with Attachment", "This is an HTML email", "", "/tmp/jira/attachments/image.jpg");

Or, assuming you are on Linux, and with some work, you could do something like this to embed the image in the email:

system("/bin/bash /home/jira/ /tmp/jira/attachments/image.jpg");
string fileContent = readFromTextFile("/tmp/jira/base64.txt");
sendHtmlEmail("person@email", "person@email", cc, "Email with Attachment", "This is an HTML email <img width=\"413\" height=\"500\" src=\"data:image/jpeg;base64," + fileContent + "\" />", "", "/tmp/jira/attachments/image.jpg");

This uses a little script:

test=$( base64 $1)
echo $test > /tmp/jira/base64.txt

You would want a stronger naming convention on the txt file...

I used the script to output the base64 encoded image to a txt file because there is a 4kb limit on the amount of data that can be returned by the system function in SIL. The readFromTextFile command does not seem to have a limit.

You would also need to do some work to get the file type (jpeg, png, etc) if you were using this in a dynamic way. Image magic has some command line functions that could be used to obtain this information.

Thanks for your answer Jon!!!



Nice, I had been looking for this solution for a while. Thanks a lot

It's really helpfull but what if I would like to make my life easier and send an image smaller than 4kb? (I generated base64 from my image using online tools). How can I attach it in a easy way to my email?
