Send email step with gif #56

stankomaksimovic2510 ·


I am using Misc > Send Email step and its working perfectly fine, however I would like to do something fun for my team.

Each time compilation has succeded or failed I would like to attach a GIF/JIF call it what you like.

Is there any way to do it?

How about sending it as attachment?

stankomaksimovic2510 ·

Sending it as attachment works, but i need this to be visible as signature more than attachment, the idea is to be more in your face style rather than click to open.

Check it further and there is an elegant approach:

  1. Define a variable say "imageData" in configuration
  2. Add a step to run below script before your send mail step:
import com.pmease.quickbuild.util.FileUtils;
import org.apache.commons.codec.binary.Base64;
def bytes = FileUtils.readFileAsBytes(new File("/path/to/your/gif"));
vars.get("imageData").setValue(new String(Base64.encodeBase64(bytes)), false);
  1. Use below to embed images in your email template:
<img src="data:image/gif;base64,${vars.getValue("imageData")}" alt="img" />

The script is working fine and picking up the value as it should, however once e-mail has been sent the final product is not gif.

I have tried adding style: width:150px command in case it is downsizing it automatically but it is not the case.

How the final product looks like I will show here GifNotDispayed.jpg

The same exact code works at my side. I am using outlook 365. Can you please check your mail client to see if it is allowed to show embedded image?
