For Developers Overview
This section is a guide to the Sailthru API and Sailthru’s template coding language Zephyr.These aspects of your Sailthru setup and integration with other systems are best accomplished with the help of a developer. Speak with your Customer Success representative or Support if you need guidance or have any questions.
Work with data in Sailthru, such as user, content, and commerce data. Initiate actions, including transactional email sends and events that trigger email.
Sailthru’s own template coding language that allows you to bring advanced logic and personalized data into your email and web content.
Where to Start?
Here are some common ways that you may want to use the Sailthru API and Zephyr.
Sync your content or products with Sailthru for intelligent display in email or on site.

Zephyr lets you personalize emails and websites with dynamic content and customize your templates with a host of other functions: automatically produce social media share links, user management page links, and more.
Configure other systems to send email with Sailthru.
Read moreUsing the Send API, generate transactional messages–on-demand messages sent to individual users. (Note that these can also be configured with the visual web interface of Lifecycle Optimizer.) You can also configure pairs of events and triggers to determine when transactionals should be sent, or what should happen as the result of transactional sends or actions on those sends, like users’ link clicks or purchases. Using the Blast API, configure Campaigns – bulk messages sent to group of users based on a list and template, which you may configure as recurring.
- User Management and Data
Store data in user profiles, central to your personalization efforts.
Use the Stats API and Job API to pull detailed reports and information on lists, campaigns, and transactional sends.
