Nikhil:

I was following your this tutorial: Laravel 5 mailchimp api integration from scratch with example

 

giving this error

 

You must provide a MailChimp API key

 

Hardik Savani:

Thank you contact us Nikhil

 

You need to follow step 1.

 

You require to create MailChimp account and get mailchimp key and on .env file:

 

 

 

MAILCHIMP_API_KEY=API-Key-Here

 

 

 

Nikhil:

Hardik,

 

In the website tutorial mentioned above, you haven't added the command for publishing the vendor. It wasn't until I looked at the GitHub page where you mention:

 

Step 3: From the command-line run

 

 

 

 

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Skovmand\Mailchimp\MailchimpServiceProvider"

 

 

 

This made the difference for me, as there was no access to the mailchimp api key variable in .env

 

Great work on this package though!!!
