Usage

Your newsletter form template can look something like this:

<form method="post">
    {{ csrfInput() }}
    <input type="hidden" name="tags" value="Tag_1,Tag_2">{# comma separated #}
    <input type="text" name="name">
    <input type="email" name="email">
    <button type="submit">Submit</button>
    <span class="notification" style="display: none"></span>
</form>

The only required field is email. Everything else is optional.

You can use jQuery/Ajax to call plugin controller like the example below

(function($) {
    $('form').submit(function(e) {
        e.preventDefault();
        $.post({
            url: '/mailchimp/send',
            data: $(this).serialize(),
            success: (r) => {
                if (r.success == true) {
                    $('.notification')
                        .text(r.msg)
                        .fadeIn()
                        .delay(6000).fadeOut();
                    $(this).trigger("reset");
                    // console.log(`%ccontact_id: ${r.id}`, 'color:#2c8');
                } else {
                    $('.notification')
                        .text(r.msg)
                        .fadeIn()
                        .delay(6000).fadeOut();
                }
            }
        });
    });
})(jQuery);
