How do I install the API?

You can either clone it from our GitHub using Git or download the files from our FTP site or GitHub website. See the instructions. It is important to use the same version of the API as the database you would like to interrogate. The API should be updated with each new release.


There are extra Perl modules that you may need to install and configure to work with the API. There are further instructions on how to do this on our blog for Mac and for Windows.
