Postorius is a Django app that talks directly to the Mailman 3 REST API and integrates everything needed to get the job done including user interface, authentication and authorization.

Mailmania is an authenticating reverse proxy server. Effectively it would allow someone to write a purely JavaScript browser based interface to Mailman 3, and it would provide the back end authorization and authentication. No such JavaScript interface exists though. Mailmania provides a way for the public to talk to the Mailman 3 core REST API.

In very loose terms you can imagine if you pulled Postorius apart into a backend and a JavaScript userinterface/front end, then Mailmania would be the equivalent of the back end. Sort of.

If you wanted to write a user interface for Mailman using ReactJS or AngularJS then you?d probably want it to talk to Mailmania.

If you want to actually have a working interface to Mailman 3 then you need Postorius as no-one has written any user interface code for Mailmania.
