7 The `PGXN Client <http://pgxnclient.projects.postgresql.org/>`__ is a command
8 line tool designed to interact with the `PostgreSQL Extension Network
9 <http://pgxn.org/>`__ allowing searching, compiling, installing, and removing
10 extensions in PostgreSQL databases.
11
12 For example, to install the semver_ extension, the client can be invoked as::
13
14 $ pgxn install semver
15
16 which would download and compile the extension for one of the PostgreSQL
17 servers hosted on the machine and::
18
19 $ pgxn load -d somedb semver
20
21 which would load the extension in one of the databases of the server.
22
23 The client interacts with the PGXN web service and a ``Makefile`` provided by
24 the extension. The best results are achieved with makefiles using the
25 PostgreSQL `Extension Building Infrastructure`__; however the client tries to
26 degrade gracefully in presence of any package hosted on PGXN.
