Example solution that demonstrates the use of the EDK npm package to integrate with Mailchimp marketing api.


The solution can be built using the following command edk build.


The project will involve creating an application containing a Mailchimp plugin.

Adding application#

The whole application can be added with the following command edk add plugin --name "Application" --def_dir src/plugin. The plugin, a SuperUser and related environment variables are added as:

import * as ELARA from "@elaraai/edk/lib"import { ApplicationPlugin, MailchimpPlugin, Const, EnvironmentVariable, Poll, SuperUser } from "@elaraai/edk/lib"
export default ELARA.Schema(    ApplicationPlugin({        name: "Mailchimp Plugin",        schemas: {            "Mailchimp" : MailchimpPlugin({                poll: Poll({ value: 1, unit: 'day' }),            })        },        users: [            SuperUser({                email: '',                name: 'Admin',                password: Const('admin'),            })        ],        environments: [            EnvironmentVariable({ name: 'MAILCHIMP_KEY' }),        ]    }))
