A temporary email right from your terminal
tmpmail tmpmail is a command line utility that allows you to create a temporary email address and receive emails to the temporary email address. It uses 1secmail's API to receive the emails.
w3m is used to render the HTML emails on the terminal. But if you prefer another text based web browser or would rather view the email in a GUI web browser such as Firefox, simply use the
--browser argument followed by the command needed to launch the web browser of your choice.
usage: tmpmail [-h] [--generate] [--browser BROWSER] [--recent] ID optional arguments: -h, --help Show this help message --version Print version -g, --generate Generate a new email address -r, --recent View the most recent email -t, --text View the email as raw text, where all the HTML tags are removed -b, --browser Change the browser that is used to render the HTML of the email (default: w3m)
