Active::Campaign::Ruby

A simple wrapper for the ActiveCampaign API. Since their API seems to be basically just form posts to their server don't complain here about the way it works. The only thing we really changed was how results are wrapped and returned and you can read more about that here.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'active_campaign'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install active_campaign

Usage

Read their API documentationfor how to use this gem.

# To setup the client
client = ::ActiveCampaign::Client.new(
        api_endpoint: 'YOUR-ENDPOINT', # e.g. 'https://yourendpoint.api-us1.com/admin/api.php'
        api_key: 'YOUR-API-KEY') # e.g. 'a4e60a1ba200595d5cc37ede5732545184165e'

# or configure globally for all clients
::ActiveCampaign.configure do |config|
  config.api_endpoint = 'YOUR-ENDPOINT', # e.g. 'https://yourendpoint.api-us1.com/admin/api.php'
  config.api_key = 'YOUR-API-KEY' # e.g. 'a4e60a1ba200595d5cc37ede5732545184165e'
end
# To fetch all lists
ActiveCampaign.list_list ids: 'all'
# To sync a contact (create if doesn't exist or update if matching email)
# you have to resort to some really ugly hacks. Due to the form serialization 
# type of API (read not a object oriented REST API) you need to translate
# something pretty into something horrific when it comes to the parameters.
ActiveCampaign.contact_sync({
                                     "id" => user.active_campaign_contact_id,
                                  "email" => user.email,
                             "first_name" => user.first,
                              "last_name" => user.last,
     "p[#{user.active_campaign_list_id}]" => user.active_campaign_list_id,
"status[#{user.active_campaign_list_id}]" => user.receive_emails ? 1 : 2
})

# Another example of syncing a contact:

list_params = {
  "#{user.active_campaign_list_id}" => user.active_campaign_list_id,
             "#{user.other_list_id}" => user.other_list_id,
}

status_params = {
  "#{user.active_campaign_list_id}" => user.receive_emails ? 1 : 2,
             "#{user.other_list_id}" => true ? 1 : 2,
}

ActiveCampaign.contact_sync({
        "id" => user.active_campaign_contact_id,
     "email" => user.email,
"first_name" => user.first,
 "last_name" => user.last,
         "p" => list_params
    "status" => status_params
})

Response

All responses are wrapped under results so ActiveCampaign.list_list ids: 'all' returns

{
     "result_code" => 1,
  "result_message" => "Success: Something is returned",
   "result_output" => "json",
         "results" => [
    {
                    "id" => "1",
                  "name" => "One list",
                 "cdate" => "2013-05-22 10:07:36",
               "private" => "0",
                "userid" => "1",
      "subscriber_count" => 2
    },
    {
                    "id" => "2",
                  "name" => "Another List",
                 "cdate" => "2013-05-22 10:09:15",
               "private" => "0",
                "userid" => "1",
      "subscriber_count" => 0
    }
  ]
}

For using tags_list action do the following

ActiveCampaign.get('tags_list')

The response of method is an array of tags

[{"id":1,"name":"test_tag","count":1}]
