Code Walkthrough

  1. apiKey is your MailChimp token which you can easily learn how to generate in
  2. listId is your audience id.
  3. An instance of MailChimpClient is created and will be used to fetch the list of members/contacts.
  4. getListMembersObject returns a list of members.
  5. ListMemberStatus.subscribed is the status of the contact.
  6. The status can either be subscribed, unsubscribed, cleaned, pending, or archived.
  7. 0 is the offset and 5 is the number of records you want to fetch.
  8. The output is finally printed after looping through the members.
