**NEW:**

- Subscribe to email
`notifications <https: dx.sendgrid.com="" newsletter="" python="">`__ for
releases and breaking changes.
- Quickly get started with
`Docker <https: github.com="" sendgrid="" sendgrid-python="" tree="" master="" docker="">`__.

**This library allows you to quickly and easily use the SendGrid Web API
v3 via Python.**

Version 3.X.X+ of this library provides full support for all SendGrid
`Web API
v3 <https: sendgrid.com="" docs="" api_reference="" web_api_v3="" index.html="">`__
endpoints, including the new `v3
/mail/send <https: sendgrid.com="" blog="" introducing-v3mailsend-sendgrids-new-mail-endpoint="">`__.

This library represents the beginning of a new path for SendGrid. We
want this library to be community driven and SendGrid led. We need your
help to realize this goal. To help make sure we are building the right
things in the right order, we ask that you create
`issues <https: github.com="" sendgrid="" sendgrid-python="" issues="">`__ and
`pull
requests <https: github.com="" sendgrid="" sendgrid-python="" blob="" master="" contributing.md="">`__
or simply upvote or comment on existing issues or pull requests.

Please browse the rest of this README for further detail.

We appreciate your continued support, thank you!

# Installation

Prerequisites
-------------

- Python version 2.6, 2.7, 3.4, 3.5 or 3.6
- The SendGrid service, starting at the `free
level <https: sendgrid.com="" free?source="sendgrid-python">`__

Setup Environment Variables
---------------------------

Update the development environment with your
`SENDGRID\_API\_KEY <https: app.sendgrid.com="" settings="" api_keys="">`__, for
example:

.. code:: bash

echo "export SENDGRID_API_KEY='YOUR_API_KEY'" > sendgrid.env
echo "sendgrid.env" >> .gitignore
source ./sendgrid.env

Install Package
---------------

.. code:: bash

pip install sendgrid

Dependencies
------------

- `Python-HTTP-Client <https: github.com="" sendgrid="" python-http-client="">`__

# Quick Start

Hello Email
-----------

The following is the minimum needed code to send an email with the
`/mail/send
Helper <https: github.com="" sendgrid="" sendgrid-python="" tree="" master="" sendgrid="" helpers="" mail="">`__
(`here <https: github.com="" sendgrid="" sendgrid-python="" blob="" master="" examples="" helpers="" mail="" mail_example.py#l20="">`__
is a full example):

With Mail Helper Class
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

.. code:: python

import sendgrid
import os
from sendgrid.helpers.mail import *

sg = sendgrid.SendGridAPIClient(apikey=os.environ.get('SENDGRID_API_KEY'))
from_email = Email("test@example.com")
to_email = Email("test@example.com")
subject = "Sending with SendGrid is Fun"
content = Content("text/plain", "and easy to do anywhere, even with Python")
mail = Mail(from_email, subject, to_email, content)
response = sg.client.mail.send.post(request_body=mail.get())
print(response.status_code)
print(response.body)
print(response.headers)

The ``Mail`` constructor creates a `personalization
object <https: sendgrid.com="" docs="" classroom="" send="" v3_mail_send="" personalizations.html="">`__
for you.
`Here <https: github.com="" sendgrid="" sendgrid-python="" blob="" master="" examples="" helpers="" mail="" mail_example.py#l16="">`__
is an example of how to add to it.

Without Mail Helper Class
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The following is the minimum needed code to send an email without the
/mail/send Helper
(`here <https: github.com="" sendgrid="" sendgrid-python="" blob="" master="" examples="" mail="" mail.py#l27="">`__
is a full example):

.. code:: python

import sendgrid
import os

sg = sendgrid.SendGridAPIClient(apikey=os.environ.get('SENDGRID_API_KEY'))
data = {
"personalizations": [
{
"to": [
{
"email": "test@example.com"
}
],
"subject": "Sending with SendGrid is Fun"
}
],
"from": {
"email": "test@example.com"
},
"content": [
{
"type": "text/plain",
"value": "and easy to do anywhere, even with Python"
}
]
}
response = sg.client.mail.send.post(request_body=data)
print(response.status_code)
print(response.body)
print(response.headers)

General v3 Web API Usage (With `Fluent Interface <https: sendgrid.com="" blog="" using-python-to-implement-a-fluent-interface-to-any-rest-api=""/>`__)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

.. code:: python

import sendgrid
import os

sg = sendgrid.SendGridAPIClient(apikey=os.environ.get('SENDGRID_API_KEY'))
response = sg.client.suppression.bounces.get()
print(response.status_code)
print(response.body)
print(response.headers)

General v3 Web API Usage (Without Fluent Interface)
---------------------------------------------------

.. code:: python

import sendgrid
import os

sg = sendgrid.SendGridAPIClient(apikey=os.environ.get('SENDGRID_API_KEY'))
response = sg.client._("suppression/bounces").get()
print(response.status_code)
print(response.body)
print(response.headers)
