directory. This script expects two json files in `/etc/tw2hugo`, which should have `chmod 700` for a non-privileged
user and no rights for the group. All files should have `chmod 400`.
## Setup
This package depends only on the pip package "requests", which I recommend to simply install globally with
`pip3 install requests`. You can also use the provided pipfile and install all dependencies into a virtual environment
with `pipenv lock`, however, you will need to activate that environment in your automation script.
Next, you will need to install the configuration files below:
## Needed configuration files

"smtp-port": 465,
"email-user": "username for smtp",

## Why does it need email credentials?
The script has the specialty that sends an email when something goes wrong, so I am notifed and can fix the issue.
If you don't want that, simply open `mail/mail.py` and replace everyting in the init function with a simple `pass`.
If you don't want that, replace `enable: true` in the `mail_credentials.json` with `false`.
## How does it integrate into Hugo?
