Simple API wrapper for Mailchimp API V3

v1.0.6 2016-08-02 12:04 UTC

README

Installation

Add the following to your composer.json

{
    "require": {
        "pacely/mailchimp-apiv3": "dev-master"
    }
}

Laravel Users

We've added some classes to help Laravel 5 users make use of the library with ease.

Service Provider

You can register our service provider in your app.php config file.

// config/app.php
'providers' => [
    ...
    Mailchimp\MailchimpServiceProvider::class
]

Facade

If you prefer facades, make sure you add this as well:

// config/app.php
'aliases' => [
    ...
    'MC' => Mailchimp\MailchimpFacade::class
]

NOTE: Make sure not to register the facade with the Mailchimp alias, as that could potentially clash with the base class.

Configuration

There are only one configuration option you need to fill in. Publish the config by running:

php artisan vendor:publish

Now, the config file will be located under config/mailchimp.php:

<?php

return [

    /*
    |--------------------------------------------------------------------------
    | Mailchimp API key
    |--------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |
    | To obtain an API key, go to mailchimp.com under your profile
    | you will find Extras -> API keys. Paste the key below.
    |
    */
    'apikey' => ''
];

Usage

There's one method to rule them all:

request($resource, $arguments = [], $method = 'GET') // $arguments is used as POST data or GET parameters, depending on the method used.

But its clever enough to map these calls aswell:

get($resource, array $options = [])
head($resource, array $options = [])
put($resource, array $options = [])
post($resource, array $options = [])
patch($resource, array $options = [])
delete($resource, array $options = [])

Pagination

We use offset and count in the query string to paginate data, because it provides greater control over how you view your data. Offset defaults to 0, so if you use offset=1, you'll miss the first element in the dataset. Count defaults to 10.

Filtering

Most endpoints don't currently support filtering, but we plan to add these capabilities over time. Schemas will tell you which collections can be filtered, and what to include in your query string.

Partial Response

To cut down on data transfers, pass a comma separated list of fields to include or exclude from a certain response in the query string. The parameters fields and exclude_fields are mutually exclusive and will throw an error if a field isn't valid in your request.

Behind Proxy

If you are behind a proxy, you can use setProxy directly on the class.

setProxy(host : string, port : int, [ssl : bool = false], [username = null], [password = null]);

See the example.

Examples

Collection object

All queries will return an instance of the Illuminate\Support\Collection object, which is really easy to work with. If you don't want to use the Collection object however, you can transform it into an array using $result->toArray().

$mc = new Mailchimp('<api-key>', '<guzzle-options[array]>');

// Get 10 lists starting from offset 10 and include only a specific set of fields
$result = $mc->request('lists', [
    'fields' => 'lists.id,lists.name,lists.stats.member_count',
    'offset' => 10,
    'count' => 10
]);

// Will fire this query: 
// GET https://us1.api.mailchimp.com/3.0/lists?fields=lists.id,lists.name,lists.stats.member_count&count=10

// Returns object(Illuminate\Support\Collection)
var_dump($result);

// Returns the first item
var_dump($result->first());

// Returns 3 items
var_dump($result->take(3));

// Returns a JSON string
var_dump($result->toJson());

// Returns an array
var_dump($result->toArray());

You can use a simple foreach/for loop or use the built in each(callable $callback) provided by our Collection object to loop through your items.

$result->each(function ($item) {
    echo $item['name'].' ('.$item['stats']['member_count'].')'.PHP_EOL;
});

There's alot more you can do with the Collection object.

Create lists

// All these fields are required to create a new list.
$result = $mc->post('lists', [
    'name' => 'New list',
    'permission_reminder' => 'You signed up for updates on Greeks economy.',
    'email_type_option' => false,
    'contact' => [
        'company' => 'Doe Ltd.',
		'address1' => 'DoeStreet 1',
		'address2' => '',
		'city' => 'Doesy',
		'state' => 'Doedoe',
		'zip' => '1672-12',
		'country' => 'US',
		'phone' => '55533344412'
    ],
    'campaign_defaults' => [
        'from_name' => 'John Doe',
        'from_email' => 'john@doe.com',
        'subject' => 'My new campaign!',
        'language' => 'US'
    ]
]);

Subresources

$result = $mc->get('lists/e04d611199', [
    'fields' => 'id,name,stats.member_count'
]);

Proxy

$mc->setProxy('https://127.0.0.1', 10, true, 'username', 'password');

$result = $mc->get('lists/e04d611199', [
    'fields' => 'id,name,stats.member_count'
]);

Further documentation

You should read through Mailchimp's API v3 documentation (I know, it's pretty rough. Should get better soon.). To find out which resources is available, take a look at the JSON API Schema for Mailchimp.
