Mailchimp Api v3 for Coldbox Coldfusion

Akitogo Team, 09 Aug 2017

Recently we have been working more and more with Mailchimp which makes designing and sending email newsletters easy. A missing piece was the integration into our own application. Mailchimp has an easy and extensive API unfortunately there are only basic implementations for Coldfusion and Coldbox framework. So we ended up writing own, our goal is to offer a feature complete API wrapper.

First release

Today we published version 0.5 on Github and Forgebox. It is still work in progress, feel free to send bug reports or pull requests. This release offers access to the following resources:

  • Automations
  • CampaignFolders
  • Campaigns
  • Conversations
  • Ecommerce
  • Lists
    • AbuseReports
    • Activity
    • Clients (email clients)
    • Growth History
  • ListsInterestCategories
  • Mailchimp
  • Reports
  • TemplateFolders
  • Templates

What can you do with it?

The module gives you easy access to all Mailchimp resources. Add, update, edit or remove members from lists, create new lists, get stats, get new subscribers, upload images and templates, etc.



The ColdBox module which gives you access to the Mailchimp Api can be installed using a simple CommandBox command:

box install mailchimpV3

If you are using Coldbox 4.3 or later, we recommend to setup the Api key in your central Coldbox.cfc config file like

moduleSettings = { mailchimpV3 = { apikey='YOUR API Key goes here' }
