SelfHosted: Admin Panel? And SMTP Mail?


#1

hi there!

i have succesfully installed NewsBlur within my docker environment.
But as there is no documentation, I am asking myself if there is some kind of “admin panel”?
(To maybe do some additional settings…)

For example setting up SMTP mail servers for sending out emails etc.

If not, how can I set the mail servers? Because out of the box, the installation is not sending mails.

Thank you

I have found out that under URL/admin/ there is a panel to login for administration.
But it seems that there are many admin files missing like

(index):20 GET URL/media/admin/js/admin/DateTimeShortcuts.js net::ERR_ABORTED 404 (NOT FOUND)

thats because in /media/ folder there is a symlink to admin which links to …/venv/newsblur/…
which is in the gitignore file…

Can you please fix this?

and for the mail part, i found out that you are using Mailgun, which is ok,
but documentation how to use is also missing.
so i found out that in some scripts variables like
MAILGUN_ACCESS_KEY
MAILGUN_SERVER_NAME
are used,
so if I add them to the settings.py it should work right? but it does not.
Can you please add some documentation how to get the Mailgun mail sending running?
Thanks a lot!
