A bit of Slack (thank you chris_b), gooling, etc. and managed to get it running

The following script is not perfect,

For my environment which doesnt use TLS and authentication (test env), I had to comment out the following lines from the script:

Basically to remove authentication and enter dummy email_user and email_password during setup.

To disabled TLS.

These changes should be included into the package by default with simple checks.

Unfortunately the app also breaks on newer Splunk versions such as 7.3, while I made various changes to make it work I have not found a good replacement yet!
