Introduction

Mailjet is a real-time Cloud Emailing platform and this is a python library to access the Mailjet Web API.

Installation

  • Clone this repository:

git clone https://github.com/WoLpH/mailjet

  • cd into the cloned directory and execute:

python setup.py install.

The settings can be configured from a Django settings file through MAILJET_API_KEY and MAILJET_SECRET_KEY, or through environment variables with the same name.

i.e.

export MAILJET_API_KEY='YOUR_API_KEY'
export MAILJET_SECRET_KEY='YOUR_SECRET_KEY'

Alternatively, you can just pass the API key and Secret key as parameters when initializing the mailjet API as follows:

import mailjet

mailjet_api = mailjet.Api(api_key='YOUR_API_KEY', secret_key='YOUR_SECRET_KEY')

Usage

  • To get your account and profile information:
import mailjet

mailjet_api = mailjet.Api(api_key='YOUR_API_KEY', secret_key='YOUR_SECRET_KEY')
account_info = mailjet_api.user.infos()

acount_info would now be assigned the following python dict:

{
    'status': 'OK',
    'infos': {
        'username': 'user@domain.com',
        'firstname': 'firstname',
        'locale': 'en_US',
        'lastname': 'lastname',
        'company_name': 'company_name',
        'contact_phone': None,
    }
}
  • Create a new list of contacts, following on from the previous example:
contact_list = mailjet_api.lists.create(
    label='test',
    name='testlist',  # Only alphanumeric characters are allowed!
    method='POST'
)

contact_list will now contain a dictionary with the status and list id as below:

{
    'status': 'OK',
    'contact_id': 000000000
}
  • You can now add contacts to your list using the contact_id:
mailjet_api.lists.addcontact(
    contact='example@example.com',
    id=contact_list['list_id'],
    method='POST'
)

FAQ

How do I give reserved python keywords as parameters?

Methods such as creating a campaign require you to use reserved python keywords, such as from - hence, in order to overcome this, do the following:

params = dict()
params['method'] ='POST'
params['subject'] = 'My first campaign'
params['list_id'] = contact_list['list_id']
params['lang'] = 'en'
params['from'] = 'noreply@example.com'
params['from_name'] = 'Your name'
params['footer'] = 'default'
campaign = api.message.createcampaign(**params)

How do I debug errors?

The errors produced by the mailjet library (or actually, produced by the urllib2 library) are still normal http responses. So if you wish to read the actual response, do something like this:

try:
    contact_list = api.lists.create(
        label='test',
        name='Test list',  # Incorrect because of the space in the name
        method='POST'
    )
except Exception, e:
    print 'Mailjet response: %r, %r' % (e, e.read())
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
