Hello everyone,

At Unlish we use Mandrill to send our notification emails.

To do so we developed a cube "mandrill" that provides 2 main features :

1. Hijack the existing functions that calls config.sendmails

    In these functions, a "sendmails" service is called instead of
    config.sendmails, and this service is provided by the cube.
    We would like a default SMTP sendmails service to be used and
    provided by cubicweb, so that the mandrill cube would only have to
    provide the service and do no more monkeypatching. See

2. Provide an improved NotificationView

    Mandrill provides a template api :
    The MandrillNotificationViewMixin makes use of it and allow to send
    different emails to each recipients.
    Beside using the send-template api of mandrill, it gives more
    control to the developer on the sender, and the merge variables for
    each recipient.
    Since it is a Mixin class, it can be mixed in an existing
    notification to make it instantly usable with a mandrill template.

The source is available at https://bitbucket.org/unlish/cubicweb-mandrill

Feedback on this cube would be very welcome, and also if Logilab is
willing to, an inclusion on the forge.
