Standard stuff applies to install. Run this from the command line: python setup.py install Documentation is in the doc directory. Any questions can be forwarded to email@example.com. I'm usually pretty good about responding. The LinkedIn client library has lxml as a dependency for XML processing. Yes, I know Python has a standard XML parser implementation. Yes, I know lxml can be a bear to install if you're building from source. Still, there's no faster or more full-featured XML parsing tool available for Python. I have no plans to include support for the etree parser in the standard libary. One other dependency is httplib2 (for the OAuth module). You can obtain this module from the Python Package Index. This package is intended for use with the LinkedIn API. You must supply your own API key for this library to work. Once you have an API key from LinkedIn, the syntax for instantiating an API client object is this: mykey = 'mysecretkey' mysecret = 'mysecretsecret' myclient = LinkedInAPI(mykey, mysecret) From there, you can obtain request tokens, authorization urls, access tokens, and actual LinkedIn data through the LinkedInAPI object's methods. The object will handle signing requests, url formatting, and XML parsing for you. Full documentation for these methods can be found in the doc directory (or will be there when I get it done). Happy apping! Aaron
