An HTTP REST interface for attachments in your Gmail account.


npm install dimap -g
dimap -u bencoe@gmail.com -p password

You can also run dimap with XOAUTH credentials (which can be generated using my fork of node-oauth, or a similar library).

dimap -x qwerty=

Once You've Got DIMAP up and running:

onConnection() Hook

The onConnection hook fires when a connection is made to the IMAP proxy, prior to negotiating a connection to Gmail through IMAP.

We've used this hook at Attachments.me to build an authentication system on top of DIMAP.

To Do

  • Add hooks for $statsd event logging.
  • Make it so dimap can support multiple mailboxes based on tag, e.g., "ALL MAIL", "TRASH".

Have fun, and be careful!
