Overview

Welcome to the Mailjet official Python API wrapper!

Check out all the resources and Python code examples in the official Mailjet Documentation.

Table of contents

Compatibility

This library officially supports the following Python versions:

  • v2.7
  • v3.5
  • v3.6

Installation

Use the below code to install the wrapper:

(sudo) pip install mailjet_rest

Authentication

The Mailjet Email API uses your API and Secret keys for authentication. Grab and save your Mailjet API credentials.

export MJ_APIKEY_PUBLIC='your api key'
export MJ_APIKEY_PRIVATE='your api secret'

Initialize your Mailjet client:

# import the mailjet wrapper
from mailjet_rest import Client
import os

# Get your environment Mailjet keys
API_KEY = os.environ['MJ_APIKEY_PUBLIC']
API_SECRET = os.environ['MJ_APIKEY_PRIVATE']

mailjet = Client(auth=(API_KEY, API_SECRET))

Make your first call

Here's an example on how to send an email:

from mailjet_rest import Client
import os
api_key = os.environ['MJ_APIKEY_PUBLIC']
api_secret = os.environ['MJ_APIKEY_PRIVATE']
mailjet = Client(auth=(api_key, api_secret), version='v3.1')
data = {
  'Messages': [
    {
      "From": {
        "Email": "$SENDER_EMAIL",
        "Name": "Me"
      },
      "To": [
        {
          "Email": "$RECIPIENT_EMAIL",
          "Name": "You"
        }
      ],
      "Subject": "My first Mailjet Email!",
      "TextPart": "Greetings from Mailjet!",
      "HTMLPart": "<h3>Dear passenger 1, welcome to <a href=\"https://www.mailjet.com/\">Mailjet</a>!</h3><br />May the delivery force be with you!"
    }
  ]
}
result = mailjet.send.create(data=data)
print result.status_code
print result.json()

Client / Call Configuration Specifics

API Versioning

The Mailjet API is spread among three distinct versions:

  • v3 - The Email API
  • v3.1 - Email Send API v3.1, which is the latest version of our Send API
  • v4 - SMS API (not supported in Python)

Since most Email API endpoints are located under v3, it is set as the default one and does not need to be specified when making your request. For the others you need to specify the version using version. For example, if using Send API v3.1:

# import the mailjet wrapper
from mailjet_rest import Client
import os

# Get your environment Mailjet keys
API_KEY = os.environ['MJ_APIKEY_PUBLIC']
API_SECRET = os.environ['MJ_APIKEY_PRIVATE']

mailjet = Client(auth=(API_KEY, API_SECRET), version='v3.1')

For additional information refer to our API Reference.

Base URL

The default base domain name for the Mailjet API is api.mailjet.com. You can modify this base URL by setting a value for api_url in your call:

mailjet = Client(auth=(api_key, api_secret),api_url="https://api.us.mailjet.com/")

If your account has been moved to Mailjet's US architecture, the URL value you need to set is https://api.us.mailjet.com.

Request examples

POST request

Simple POST request

"""
Create a new contact:
"""
from mailjet_rest import Client
import os
api_key = os.environ['MJ_APIKEY_PUBLIC']
api_secret = os.environ['MJ_APIKEY_PRIVATE']
mailjet = Client(auth=(api_key, api_secret))
data = {
  'Email': 'Mister@mailjet.com'
}
result = mailjet.contact.create(data=data)
print result.status_code
print result.json()

Using actions

"""
Manage the subscription status of a contact to multiple lists:
"""
from mailjet_rest import Client
import os
api_key = os.environ['MJ_APIKEY_PUBLIC']
api_secret = os.environ['MJ_APIKEY_PRIVATE']
mailjet = Client(auth=(api_key, api_secret))
id = '$ID'
data = {
  'ContactsLists': [
                {
                        "ListID": "$ListID_1",
                        "Action": "addnoforce"
                },
                {
                        "ListID": "$ListID_2",
                        "Action": "addforce"
                }
        ]
}
result = mailjet.contact_managecontactslists.create(id=id, data=data)
print result.status_code
print result.json()

GET Request

Retrieve all objects

"""
Retrieve all contacts:
"""
from mailjet_rest import Client
import os
api_key = os.environ['MJ_APIKEY_PUBLIC']
api_secret = os.environ['MJ_APIKEY_PRIVATE']
mailjet = Client(auth=(api_key, api_secret))
result = mailjet.contact.get()
print result.status_code
print result.json()

Using filtering

"""
Retrieve all contacts that are not in the campaign exclusion list:
"""
from mailjet_rest import Client
import os
api_key = os.environ['MJ_APIKEY_PUBLIC']
api_secret = os.environ['MJ_APIKEY_PRIVATE']
mailjet = Client(auth=(api_key, api_secret))
filters = {
  'IsExcludedFromCampaigns': false,
}
result = mailjet.contact.get(filters=filters)
print result.status_code
print result.json()

Retrieve a single object

"""
Retrieve a specific contact ID:
"""
from mailjet_rest import Client
import os
api_key = os.environ['MJ_APIKEY_PUBLIC']
api_secret = os.environ['MJ_APIKEY_PRIVATE']
mailjet = Client(auth=(api_key, api_secret))
id = 'Contact_ID'
result = mailjet.contact.get(id=id)
print result.status_code
print result.json()

PUT request

A PUT request in the Mailjet API will work as a PATCH request - the update will affect only the specified properties. The other properties of an existing resource will neither be modified, nor deleted. It also means that all non-mandatory properties can be omitted from your payload.

Here's an example of a PUT request:

"""
Update the contact properties for a contact:
"""
from mailjet_rest import Client
import os
api_key = os.environ['MJ_APIKEY_PUBLIC']
api_secret = os.environ['MJ_APIKEY_PRIVATE']
mailjet = Client(auth=(api_key, api_secret))
id = '$CONTACT_ID'
data = {
  'Data': [
                {
                        "Name": "first_name",
                        "value": "John"
                },
                {
                        "Name": "last_name",
                        "value": "Smith"
                }
        ]
}
result = mailjet.contactdata.update(id=id, data=data)
print result.status_code
print result.json()

DELETE request

Upon a successful DELETE request the response will not include a response body, but only a 204 No Content response code.

Here's an example of a DELETE request:

"""
Delete an email template:
"""
from mailjet_rest import Client
import os
api_key = os.environ['MJ_APIKEY_PUBLIC']
api_secret = os.environ['MJ_APIKEY_PRIVATE']
mailjet = Client(auth=(api_key, api_secret))
id = 'Template_ID'
result = mailjet.template.delete(id=id)
print result.status_code
print result.json()
