greatape is a minimalist client library for version 1.2 of the MailChimp
API. It was very much inspired by Mike Verdone's Twitter client library in that it does a bit of mucky, dynamic
business with __getattr__ to avoid having to actually write code for all the
methods that the API provides.
greatape is pretty darned easy to use. Simple import the API object and
instantiate it with your API key.
>>> from greatape import MailChimp >>> mailchimp = MailChimp('<your api key>')
You can now access any of the methods in the API by calling them on your
MailChimp instance with the required parameters as keyword arguments.
Results will be returned as Python lists or dictionaries. (Note that you do
not need to provide your API key as a parameter other than to the constructor.)
Refer to the MailChimp API documentation
for a complete list of available methods.
greatape defaults to using SSL to access the MailChimp API. If this isn't
what you want, pass
ssl=False to the
In case you desperately want to know exactly what resource you are hitting with
what data, pass the constructor
debug=True and you will get a print out of
the URL and POST data just before the call is made.
