How to Set Up a Mailing List with Laravel, Statamic, and Mailgun

This is a general outline for creating a mailing list with Laravel and Statamic using Mailgun and a service provider:

  1. Set up your Mailgun account and obtain your API key.

  2. Install the Mailgun package for Laravel using Composer:

                                            composer require mailgun/mailgun-php

  1. Add a new class `MailgunServiceProvider` in `app\Providers\` folder:


namespace App\Providers;

use Illuminate\Support\ServiceProvider;
use Mailgun\Mailgun;

class MailgunServiceProvider extends ServiceProvider
     * Register the Mailgun client with the service container.
     * @return void
    public function register()
        $this->app->singleton(Mailgun::class, function ($app) {
            return Mailgun::create(env('MAILGUN_SECRET', ''));

  1. Add the Mailgun service provider to your config/app.php file:

                                            'providers' => [
    // Other service providers...

  1. In your .env file, add your Mailgun API key and domain:

[email protected]

  1. Create a form in your Statamic site that allows users to enter their email address and submit it to your mailing list.

  2. In your Controler or your form submission handler, use the Mailgun service to add the user's email address to your mailing list:


namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Log;
use Mailgun\Mailgun;

class MailController extends Controller
    public function subscribe(Request $request, Mailgun $mgClient)
        # Add a subscriber to the mailing list
        $mailing_list = env('MAILGUN_LIST', '');
        $address = $request->get('email');
        [$name] = explode('@', $address);

        try {
            $result = $mgClient->mailingList()->member()->create(
        } catch (\Exception $e) {
            Log::error($e->getCode() . ' ' .$e->getMessage());
            return (new \Statamic\View\View)

       return (new \Statamic\View\View)
            ->with(['result' => $result]);
  1. Add your route to point to your controller:

                                            Route::post('/email/subscribe', [\App\Http\Controllers\MailController::class, 'subscribe']);
  1. Add you template:
    views ->errors->subscribe `views\errors\subscribe.antlers.html`
