Nylas Sync Engine Build Status

The Nylas Sync Engine provides a RESTful API on top of a powerful email sync platform, making it easy to build apps on top of email. See the full API documentation for more details.

Installation and Setup

  1. Install the latest versions of VirtualBox and Install Vagrant.

  2. git clone https://github.com/nylas/sync-engine.git

  3. cd sync-engine

  4. vagrant up

    Feel free to check out the Vagrantfile while this starts up. It creates a host-only network for the VM at

  5. vagrant ssh

  6. cd /vagrant

  7. NYLAS_ENV=dev bin/inbox-start

And voilà! Auth an account via the commandline to start syncing:

bin/inbox-auth [email protected]

The inbox-auth command will walk you through the process of obtaining an authorization token from Google or another service for syncing your mail. In the open-source version of the sync engine, your credentials are stored to the local MySQL database for simplicity. The open-source Nylas Sync Engine does not support Exchange, but the hosted version does.

The sync engine will automatically begin syncing your account with the underlying provider. The inbox-sync command allows you to manually stop or restart the sync by running inbox-sync stop [YOUR_ACCOUNT]@example.com or inbox-sync start [YOUR_ACCOUNT]@example.com. Note that an initial sync can take quite a while depending on how much mail you have.

Nylas API Service

The Nylas API service provides a REST API for interacting with your data. To start it in your development environment, run command below from the /vagrant folder within your VM:

$ bin/inbox-api

This will start the API Server on port 5555. At this point You're now ready to make requests! If you're using VirtualBox or VMWare fusion with Vagrant, port 5555 has already been forwarded to your host machine, so you can hit the API from your regular web browser.

You can get a list of all connected accounts by requesting http://localhost:5555/accounts. This endpoint requires no authentication.

For subsequent requests to retreive mail, contacts, and calendar data, your app should pass the account_id value from the previous step as the "username" parameter in HTTP Basic auth. For example:

curl --user 'ACCOUNT_ID_VALUE_HERE:' http://localhost:5555/threads

If you are using a web browser and would like to clear your cached HTTP Basic Auth values, simply visit http://localhost:5555/logout and click "Cancel".

Now you can start writing your own application on top of the Nylas API! For more information about the internals of the Nylas Sync Engine, see the Nylas API Documentation.

Production Support

We provide a fully managed and supported version of the Nylas sync engine for production apps. Read more at https://nylas.com

Pull Requests

We'd love your help making Nylas better! Please sign-up for a developer account for project updates and the latest news. Feel free to create issues or pull requests to start discussions.

We require all authors sign our Contributor License Agreement when submitting pull requests. (It's similar to other projects, like NodeJS or Meteor.)


For the sake of simplicity and setup speed, the development VM does not include any authentication or permission. For developing with sensitive data, we encourage developers to add their own protection, such as only running Nylas on a local machine or behind a controlled firewall. Note that passwords and OAuth tokens are stored unencrypted in the local MySQL data store on disk. This is intentional, for the same reason as above.

  • 1 of 33 tests failing; new mail hitting gmail is only getting processed on restarting ./inbox start

    1 of 33 tests failing; new mail hitting gmail is only getting processed on restarting ./inbox start

    inbox app team: Thanks for a great project. I had been looking for projects using zerorpc. I have been playing around with inbox today and have it mostly working except for a single test. I wasn't sure if this was broken for you too? Part of the error msg was "No handlers could be found for logger "inbox.server.general"" and I was wondering if this might explain why new mails hitting my gmail inbox aren't getting picked up and pushed across to mysql. I set up a workbench GUI to try to understand the tables in mysql a bit better ... the message and thread tables only appear to update when I stop and restart ./inbox start. As per the installation readme, I had set up ./inbox sync start [email protected] ... and wasn't sure if this was hindering new mails being picked up automatically. Thanks. Colum

  • Adding an imap account to sync

    Adding an imap account to sync

    I have successfully added a gmail account (using the command line) to sync and it works wonderfully.

    I cannot see how to add an imap account. Ideally, I would like to add it via the api and also know how to add a gmail account via the api but I cannot see anything in the docs for this. I have looked through the code also but cannot see anything. It looks like it can sync but I cannot see a resource I can use to add.

    Syncing all emails from Gmail - old messages not synced

    I added a Gmail account with ~15gb of emails and after a few hours I still have close to 200 threads synced. I thought quotas.. so I added my own API key.

    Any tips on how to speed up the sync process?

    Hundreds of update_metadata calls eternally

    I unfortunately don't know enough about IMAP to be able to provide a meaningful bug report or patch right off the bat, but hopefully you can point me towards what information I can provide that might be helpful.

    I'm connecting to a Dreamhost IMAP server (not sure what software they use, unfortunately). I'm not sure if they're not compliant with IMAP standards (see #78) or if it just doesn't adhere to some common conventions. But I'm finding that when I go to sync, I'm always presented with dozens or hundreds of "UIDs to refresh" (https://github.com/inboxapp/inbox/blob/25bb4e867d372652e44083102d7e091849793d95/inbox/mailsync/backends/imap/imap.py#L393) in each folder.

    I'll then get a stream of:

    [INFO] {"account_id": 1, "level": "info", "timestamp": "2014-08-15T03:13:51.323217Z", "module": "inbox.mailsync.backends.imap.imap:870", "folder_name": "INBOX.Sent", "new_flags": {"6200": [["\\Seen"]], "6196": [["\\Seen"]], "6197": [["\\Answered", "\\Seen"]], "6198": [["\\Seen"]], "6199": [["\\Seen"]]}, "folder": "INBOX.Sent", "event": "new flags "}
    [DEBUG] {"account_id": 1, "level": "debug", "timestamp": "2014-08-15T03:13:51.323738Z", "module": "inbox.mailsync.backends.imap.imap:872", "folder": "INBOX.Sent", "event": "update_metadata acquired syncmanager_lock"}

    These will last for a while, then break breifly and then (I suppose when the next sync iteration starts) repeat.

    I'm not changing anything in my folders, so I'm not sure what it would be thinking needs to be updated. I'm happy to do a little more investigating if you can point me in the right direction.

    How to implement security/authorization

    Hi, I've recently set up a sync-engine instance on a home VM, how would I go about allowing N1 to connect to it from outside the network in a safe way? As I understand correctly there is a security concern simply exposing port 5555, as anybody can query for accounts and account Ids.

    I've seen https://github.com/nylas/sync-engine/pull/104 and https://github.com/nylas/sync-engine/pull/115 but still don't quite understand.

  • Add environment variable so binaries work; tweak install script

    Add environment variable so binaries work; tweak install script

    I was trying to run this using the Vagrant method and I got some errors, so I thought I would just try and fix them.

    First, the default version of pip that's already installed seems to try to install from the non-TLS version of the python repositories.

    Next, the Python chardet library version that the system wants conflicts with one that's already installed on Ubuntu. I just uninstalled the package so the new one can get put in instead.

    I also disabled the pip version check, it just makes for confusing errors.

    And the last change to the setup.sh script is - because of how upstart is hooked into the system, mysql seems to start on its own and the mysqld_safe binary doesn't need to be run directly.

    Additionally, I modified the Vagrantfile to make the various binaries run as documented in the README. I adding a profile.d script to set the PYTHONPATH environment variable so those various binaries will execute correctly.

    That last change seems weird; if that was something that was necessary I would expect it to already be there? If there's a better or different way to do that, I'm happy to rework my changes here to accommodate.

  • v0.3.0(Sep 9, 2014)

    Hi Inbox Developers,

    Over the past month we've been hard at work at Inbox HQ as well as around the globe to improve the Inbox Sync Engine, API, and SDKs, and are proud to announce the release of version 0.3.0. You can find all the gory details on GitHub, but the high-level changes are noted below.

    API changes

    While we strive to maintain API stability, we've been working with folks building apps on top of Inbox and have found that the following API changes make some apps drastically simpler—enough to justify a backwards-incompatible change.

    • We've changed a number of endpoints to refer to items by item_id or item_ids rather than just item for greater clarity. This includes:
      • Rename the namespace attribute of all objects to namespace_id.
      • Rename the thread attribute of messages and drafts to thread_id.
      • Rename the messages and drafts attributes of threads to message_ids and draft_ids, respectively.
      • Rename the thread query parameter for filtering messages and drafts to thread_id.
    • The Draft update endpoint now uses the PUT HTTP method, consistent with other objects like threads and messages.
    • Drafts now have a version attribute, and updating a draft now simply changes its version, instead of creating a new draft object. (Note that updating or sending a draft now requires the version value as a parameter, in order to prevent write conflicts.)

    New Calendar and Events APIs

    These new APIs allow access to calendar and event information for accounts from Google, iCloud, Hotmail/Outlook.com and Microsoft Exchange (contact [email protected] to request beta hosted access). Check out the docs to get started!

    New SDKS

    We've released Ruby and Python bindings, making it even faster to get started building email apps against the hosted Inbox API.

    Here's a quick Python example:

    inbox = APIClient(APP_ID, APP_SECRET, token)
    namespace = inbox.namespaces.first()
    for thread in namespace.threads.items():
        print thread.subject

    Other feature additions

    • Attachment tag added to threads which have attachments.
    • Create an archive folder where necessary for various providers.
    • Namespace endpoint now support filtering options such as limit, offset and email_address.
    • Files endpoint supports delete for files that are not currently attachments.
    • User-created tags can be deleted.

    Bug Fixes

    • Propagate unread status changes to threads in update_metadata.
    • Better handling of HTML stripping for snippets.
    • Remove unused UIDNEXT from IMAP mailsync, since some providers don't support it.
    • More graceful handling of various IMAP errors.
    • Improved coverage for unit tests, notably over the API calls.
    • Refactor message / parts / blocks relationship to avoid creating new blocks when they are attached to messages.
    • Remove duplicated code around SMTP mail sending.
    • Truncate fields if they are too long on calendar/event parsing.
    • Properly check to, cc, bcc fields in drafts for formatting.

    With love from Team Inbox, -- mg, spang, kavya, eben, ben, charles, karim, dwayne, and zoë

  • v0.2.0(Aug 13, 2014)

    Hi Inbox Developers,

    We are pleased to announce a new release of Inbox. We are again excited to see the enthusiasm from the community and we've been hard at work integrating change requests, adding new features and fixing bugs.

    Here's what's changed since the last release:

    New Features

    • Support for generic providers. We've now made it easier to add support for more providers through the "providers.py" file, where you may specify the relevant information for new providers without modifying other parts of the code.
    • Basic multicore support for mailsync.
    • Automatic detection for providers which support RFC4551 / 7162 (CONDSTORE).
    • An improved threading algorithm for providers which do not support automatic threading on the backend.
    • Theinbox-auth command is now scriptable with the options --exit_after_link and --token.
    • Better handling for invalid API query parameters.
    • The API message representation now includes detailed attachment information such as content_type, size, and filename.
    • Initial support for Outlook.com/Hotmail including sending, receiving, archiving and draft management
    • The drafts API supports ?thread=[filter], which returns all the drafts of a thread.

    Bug Fixes

    • Improved handling for accounts which no longer have valid credentials or cannot connect to the underlying provider.
    • Updated html2text version to avoid issues with malformed html.
    • A significantly reduced number of database connections are now needed to sync accounts.
    • Cleanly handle corrupted Gmail metadata cache files.
    • SIGTERM is properly handled in inbox-start/
    • The file attachment API call now returns a proper JSON response.
    • Assorted drafts/sending bugs.
    • Many performance improvements and other various bugfixes.
    • Improved provider identification during authorization process.


    If you're running Inbox on your own infrastructure, make sure you've disabled the sync, API and syncback processes and run the following to upgrade:

    $ ./setup.sh

    Thanks to everyone for their continued support and interest in Inbox! If you run into problems with the latest, we hope you'll file an issue[1] or hop onto ##inbox to get help.
