In this post you can learn how to integrate mailchimp api in your laravel 5 application. Mailchimp provides manage subscribers, send emails using campaign and also track email results etc. Mailchimp through you can track how much subscribers open email and read. If you have newsletter website or any tutorial website then you should add email subscriber function that way we can inform through email.

I use skovmand/mailchimp-laravel laravel package for mailchimp api in laravel 5 application. In this example you can subscriber email and send campaign from laravel application from scratch, so if you don’t know how to do then it’s very simple to do. you can see bellow perview after finish few step and you will see like bellow preview in your laravel 5 website.

Preview:

Step 1: Create MailChimp Account Setting

If you are from scratch, i mean if you don’t have account then you can create new account from here : Create New Account.

Ok, now you have to create new List, click on Lists on menu and create new list. After create successfully lists then select your list, got to settings->List name and defaults and copy your list id, we will use it on api.

Now we can get API Key so click here and get api key : API Key

Open your .env file and paste here this way:

.env

APP_ENV=local

APP_DEBUG=true

APP_KEY=HZoXrOanofcjLSbmF67kVtJyVHMFE3XU


DB_HOST=127.0.0.1

DB_DATABASE=learn

DB_USERNAME=root

DB_PASSWORD=root


MAILCHIMP_API_KEY=API Key Here

Step 2: Install Package

In this step we will install skovmand/mailchimp-laravel package for use MailChimp api methods. so first fire bellow command in your cmd or terminal:

composer require skovmand/mailchimp-laravel

Now we need to add provider path and alias path in config/app.php file so open that file and add bellow code.

config/app.php

return [

......

$provides => [

......

......,

SkovmandMailchimpMailchimpServiceProvider::class,

],

.....

]

Step 3: Add Route

In this step we will add new three route for creating small example that way we can undestand very well. one for layout, second one for subscribe and last one for send campaign. so first add bellow route in your routes.php file.

app/Http/routes.php

Route::get('manageMailChimp', 'MailChimpController@manageMailChimp');

Route::post('subscribe',['as'=>'subscribe','uses'=>'MailChimpController@subscribe']);

Route::post('sendCompaign',['as'=>'sendCompaign','uses'=>'MailChimpController@sendCompaign']);

Step 4: Add Controller

In this step we will add MailChimpController file for our example. you can copy whole controller file then also you can just copy and paste.

app/Http/Controllers/MailChimpController.php

namespace AppHttpControllers;


use IlluminateHttpRequest;

use Auth;

use Config;


class MailChimpController extends Controller

{


public $mailchimp;

public $listId = '0e5ec5601as';


public function __construct(Mailchimp $mailchimp)

{

$this->mailchimp = $mailchimp;

}


public function manageMailChimp()

{

return view('mailchimp');

}


public function subscribe(Request $request)

{

$this->validate($request, [

'email' => 'required|email',

]);


try {


$this->mailchimp

->lists

->subscribe(

$this->listId,

['email' => $request->input('email')]

);


return redirect()->back()->with('success','Email Subscribed successfully');


} catch (Mailchimp_List_AlreadySubscribed $e) {

return redirect()->back()->with('error','Email is Already Subscribed');

} catch (Mailchimp_Error $e) {

return redirect()->back()->with('error','Error from MailChimp');

}

}


public function sendCompaign(Request $request)

{

$this->validate($request, [

'subject' => 'required',

'to_email' => 'required',

'from_email' => 'required',

'message' => 'required',

]);


try {


$options = [

'list_id' => $this->listId,

'subject' => $request->input('subject'),

'from_name' => $request->input('from_email'),

'from_email' => 'hardik@onlinecode',

'to_name' => $request->input('to_email')

];


$content = [

'html' => $request->input('message'),

'text' => strip_tags($request->input('message'))

];


$campaign = $this->mailchimp->campaigns->create('regular', $options, $content);

$this->mailchimp->campaigns->send($campaign['id']);


return redirect()->back()->with('success','send campaign successfully');


} catch (Exception $e) {

return redirect()->back()->with('error','Error from MailChimp');

}

}


}


Step 5: Add Blade file

This is a last step and you have to just create new blade file mailchimp.blade.php and put bellow code on that file.

resources/views/mailchimp.blade.php

@extends('layouts.app')


@section('content')

<h2 >MailChimp API Example</h2>

<div >


@if ($message = Session::get('success'))

<div >

<button type="button" data-dismiss="alert">×</button>

<strong>{{ $message }}</strong>

</div>

@endif


@if ($message = Session::get('error'))

<div >

<button type="button" data-dismiss="alert">×</button>

<strong>{{ $message }}</strong>

</div>

@endif


<div >

<div >

<div >

{!! Form::open(array('route' => 'subscribe')) !!}

<div>

<h3 >Subscribe Your Email</h3>

{!! Form::close() !!}

</div>

</div>

<div >

<div >

{!! Form::open(array('route' => 'sendCompaign','class'=>'form-horizontal')) !!}

<fieldset>
