Curl command to push a new subscriber to your sendy

edited July 2020 in Contributions

I wanted to figure out how to push a new subscriber to a sendy list from a shell script. Taking a look at the PHP examples it is pretty easy to figure out how to do it with curl. Here's what it would look like:

curl -X "POST" "" \
     -H 'Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded' \
     --data-urlencode "api_key=123YourAPIKeyFromSettings123" \
     --data-urlencode "boolean=true" \
     --data-urlencode "silent=true" \
     --data-urlencode "name=Joe Bloggs" \
     --data-urlencode "" \
     --data-urlencode "list=ABC123TheListId" \
     --data-urlencode "CustomField=Blahblah123"

Replace the api_key and list id with your own. Note a couple of things:

  • It needs to be a POST request
  • The header needs to be set to "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
  • The key=value pairs go in the "body" of your request because they are mimicking form fields. It doesn't work if you send them as URL params
  • The list id you can get from the list of lists in the UI
  • If it succeeds it just returns a "1" not some json
